Pancake Doughnuts with Maple Frosting and Coconut Bacon

These aren’t any ordinary doughnuts.



That’s partially because when it comes to the fine art of doughnut-making, I really have no idea what I’m doing, but hell if I wasn’t going to try when my husband came home with a doughnut mold on a weekend supply run to Target! (By the way, thanks Terr! :-*)



The first time I attempted this recipe, I made them into cookies, so if you don’t have a doughnut mold, either adapt this recipe for cookies or a muffin tin or go marry someone who comes home from a random shopping trip at Target with a doughnut mold.  Either way, these will still taste EPIC-ly awesome.  You won’t be sorry.  😉


We suggest using our recipe for pancake butter in these delicious baked doughnuts, but Earth Balance also works!  If you need a recipe for the coconut bacon, we have you covered there as well with our Super-Simple Coconut Bacon recipe from earlier this week.  If you make these delicious creations, let us know by tagging #PlantPowerCouple on Facebook and enjoy scrumptious vegan doughnut land!

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter (or the Pancake Butter recipe from the blog), melted
  • 2 Tbsp cashew or almond milk
  • [for the frosting:]
  • 1/2 cup organic powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • [optional topping: coconut bacon]


  1. Add the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a bowl. Use a large wooden spoon to combine.
  2. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredient mixture. Pour in melted butter, maple syrup, and cashew or almond milk. Mix until fully combined.
  3. Preheat oven to 325F and grease a doughnut mold.
  4. Fill doughnut molds with the dough, leaving about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch of space at the top for the dough to puff up a bit.
  5. Bake at 325F for 9 minutes.
  6. To make your frosting, add powdered sugar and maple syrup to a small bowl and whisk until fully combined and creamy. You may want to keep this in the fridge until the doughnuts are ready.
  7. Allow the doughnuts to cool and slather them with the maple frosting. If using coconut bacon (HIGHLY recommended), sprinkle them on top of the maple frosting.
  8. Enjoy!
