Total Time35 mins
Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 donuts


  • 2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp ground flax seed
  • 6 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 Tbsp vegetable oil

For the vanilla glaze

  • 1 can vanilla frosting warmed


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray donut pan with non-stick spray, set aside. 
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, nutmeg, baking powder and salt. 
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the ground flax and water until frothy (similar to an egg). Add almond milk, vanilla extract and vegetable oil and mix. 
  • Pour wet ingredients into the flour mixture and mix until just combined. 
  • Pour batter into a large ziploc bag (or bakery bag) and snip a corner about 1/2" across. Pipe batter evenly into prepared donut pan.
  • Bake on middle rack for 8-10 minutes.
  • Scoop the vanilla frosting into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 15-20 seconds until warmed through and smooth. 
  • Once donuts are cooled, dip into warm frosting and add toppings right after so they stick. 


I like to use sprinkles, mini M&M's or mini chocolate chips. Use anything you have on hand, or add a little food coloring and turn the frosting any color you want!
