BERRY RECIPES COMING YOUR WAY!
Ok, I know we’re not quite in peak blueberry season yet but I just couldn’t help myself. I’m just too excited about these vegan blueberry donuts.
These babies are light, fluffy, loaded with dried wild blueberries, and topped off with the most beautiful blueberry glaze!
So I officially declare we are jumping into blueberry season. Right. Now.
The perfect vegan donut recipe
Ok, so let me start off my saying how easy it is to make baked donuts at home. If you’ve been at all intimidated by making donuts, don’t worry! You don’t need a deep fryer, any yeast or any fancy ingredients to make these vegan blueberry donuts.
The benefits of dried blueberries
These donuts are filled with Patience Fruit & Co dried wild blueberries. The benefit to using dried blueberries in this recipe instead of fresh blueberries is that the blueberries don’t burst and spread in the donuts.
The dried blueberries also have a much more intense blueberry flavour, so you get a really nice burst of rich blueberry taste in every bite!
I exclusively use Patience Fruit & Co dried blueberries in my recipes because they made with Canadian wild blueberries, (not cultivated!) are sweetened with apple juice, (not loaded with refined sugars) and they contain 140 grams of polyphenols per serving! (Polyphenols are a natural antioxidant found in blueberries.)
They’re also 100% organic and use any genetically modified ingredients, so they make for a much healthier dried blueberry!
How to make these easy baked donuts
Let’s quickly walk through the steps on how to easily make these donuts shall we?
- Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl
- Mix the wet ingredients together in a bowl
- Mix together
- Bake for 10 minutes
- Top with glaze
Pretty simple right? And the best part (in my opinion) is that you don’t need to use any mixers for this recipe. Yup, these can be made in a bowl.
The trick to making perfect vegan donuts is using the right ratio of dry ingredients to liquid ingredients and mixing the batter just the right amount.
You want to mix everything together until it’s well incorporated and there aren’t any large chunks left, but you want to be careful not to overmix the batter! This will lead to dry and tough donuts. (And we don’t want that!)
