Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing

Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing | Well and Full | #vegan #recipe

These Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing are the perfect healthy, vegan sweet treat! Made with whole food, plant-based ingredients.

This post was created in collaboration with One Degree Organics, a brand I’ve been working with since 2016 and have come to love and trust. All opinions are my own! 

These Vegan Cereal Donuts were inspired by a trip I recently took to a new donut shop in West Hartford, CT with my fiancé. They had a donut there that was made with strawberry icing, with cereal used as sprinkles. I loved the way the crunchy cereal contrasted with the sweet icing and fluffy donut, and I knew I had to recreate something like it at home!

However, my recipe style does not usually involve deep-frying anything or using a lot of unhealthy ingredients. So I knew this would be the perfect recipe to make with the One Degree Organics Sprouted Cacao-O’s. This cereal is made with natural, plant-based ingredients like real cacao and organic oats. It’s also crazy delicious even on its own – I had to yell at my fiancé for trying to eat the box before I could test the recipe LOL!

I love working with One Degree Organics because they are a family-owned business that has so much transparency in what they do. I appreciate what they do because in addition to food blogging, I also work part-time in my dad’s family-owned business. In a world of Amazons and Walmarts, there is so much to be said for small businesses with heart. I love supporting One Degree Organics and working with their high-quality products. I feel proud to have this partnership.

All in all, I hope you love this recipe, made with the best quality ingredients. The donut itself is made with a variation of my banana bread recipe, making a sweet, cake-y donut. It tastes super delicious with the easy strawberry icing, made with real strawberries! I hope you enjoy these donuts!

Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing

These Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing are the perfect healthy, vegan sweet treat! Made with whole food, plant-based ingredients.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 6 Donuts


Dry Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Mashed Banana
  • 2 Tbs Almond Milk
  • 3 Tbs Coconut Oil melted
  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt


  • 1 Cup Powdered Organic Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Almond Milk
  • 1 Large Strawberry

Cereal Sprinkles

  • Handful of One Degree Organics Sprouted Cacao O's


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a mixing bowl, add in the dry ingredients. Mix until incorporated.
  • In a smaller bowl, add in wet ingredients. Mix until completely incorporated, trying to have as few banana chunks as possible.
  • Then, fold in the wet ingredients mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir until incorporated completely.
  • In a 6-count donut pan, add in the batter evenly. Bake donuts in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  • After donuts are done cooking, take them out of the oven and let them cool COMPLETELY.
  • Then, make the icing. (You don't want to make the icing too soon or it will harden before the donuts cool.) In a blender or food processor, blend the strawberry and the almond milk until smooth. 
  • Through a fine mesh sieve, sift through the powdered sugar into a low bowl. (You don't want any clumps!) Then, add in the strawberry milk mixture, until a smooth icing is formed.
  • Dip the top half of the donuts into the bowl of icing. Then, immediately sprinkle on the chocolate cereal.
  • Let icing harden for a few minutes, then it's time to eat!
  • Enjoy!

    Using cereal instead of sprinkles is so fun! I especially love the chocolate and strawberry combo!

    This is such a fun idea! I love One Degree Organics too. We eat their cacao brown rice crisps all the time and they’re so good. I bet the O’s are just as good, especially on these donuts!!
