I was tidying up the kitchen cupboards when I came across a mini donut tray that I desperately wanted and then only ended up using twice in the almost year since I got it (familiar story for anyone?). But that’s ok, because we’re here to right the wrongs and show the donut tray the appreciation it deserves, because there’s something about donuts that just makes you so intrinsically happy.
This recipe combines all the fun of cute and colourful donuts with the respectability of a wholesome, nutritious breakfast. The oaty base is the donut-version of baked porridge, sweetened largely by applesauce and fragrant from the vanilla. The silky cashew butter-based icing is where the party’s at, due to the punchy colours and flavours. I’ve started with three (berry, matcha and saffron-turmeric), but might expand the range by a chocolatey-/peanutty version. The icing is also pretty wholesome, with only a splash of maple syrup as added sweetener and no artificial colouring or flavouring. A true feel-good breakfast bake that takes ca. 30 min to prepare and bake.Continue reading “Mini Vegan Breakfast Donuts”
