Almond Joy Donuts (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Almond Joy Donuts.  We all need a little donut in our life sometimes.  That’s exactly why I made you these Almond Joy vegan Donuts!  They will not disappoint!

I have several other healthy donut recipes on the blog.  My favorite is the Pumpkin Chai Donuts, but a close second would be my Banana Chocolate Chip Donuts.

Pumpkin Chai Donuts

I am just loving the flavor of these pumpkin chai donuts!  I have been into all things chai flavored lately.  First there was my flourless chai sandwich cookies and then my coconut vanilla chai ice cream. Now these delectable donuts.  These are vegan and gluten free.   The chai flavor was perfect with the pumpkin. I hope you enjoy it as well. If you are not into chai flavors, but love pumpkin, you can always make these muffins instead.

If you donut have a donut pan, you can always make these into muffins.  You may have to adjust the cooking time though.  These would also be delicious with this frosting recipe spread on top.

Lemon Blueberry Donuts

I love combining lemon and blueberry together.  That is exactly what I did to make these Lemon Blueberry Donuts.  In addition to adding lemon and blueberry, I also added a creamy coconut frosting.  Coconut also goes very well with lemon and blueberry.  You can never have too many donut recipes, right?  Especially when they are healthy donut recipes.  My kids were trying to sneak bites of these lemon blueberry donuts as I was trying to take the picture!  The life of a food blogger mom!  If you also like lemon and blueberry, you may also like my lemon blueberry ice cream or my lemon blueberry cookies.

This healthy donut recipe is vegan and gluten free.  I used fresh blueberries in my recipe, but I bet you could also use frozen blueberries.  Just let them thaw before using in this recipe.  I think this healthy donut recipe would also be good with strawberries or raspberries!

Double Chocolate Donuts (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Double Chocolate Donuts.  My husband and older daughter love all things chocolate.  I am more of a vanilla girl.

I made these chocolate donuts for them.  Most of my donut recipes can double for breakfasts, but this recipe is extra indulgent and better as a dessert.

These chocolate donuts are almost like a brownie in donut form.  I was excited to make these chocolate donuts because I got to break out my heart shaped donut pans.

I bought them right after Valentine’s Day when they were 50% off.

Gluten Free Red Velvet Donuts

When I think of Valentine’s Day, I immediately think of all things red velvet.  Last year for Valentine’s Day I made my girls these Healthy Red Velvet Donuts.  Since I didn’t use food coloring, my donuts didn’t have that deep red color you associate with all things red velvet.  Well this year I have made a gluten free red velvet donut recipe that contains a secret ingredient to make them deep red.

Healthy Red Velvet Donuts (Vegan)

Healthy Red Velvet Donuts with no artificial dyes! I have been wanting to try making red velvet donuts for a long time.  So yesterday I took the plunge and they came out great.


Healthy Red Velvet Donuts


Most red velvet cakes, muffins, and cookies are made with artificial food dyes.  Artificial dyes are a deal breaker for me. Did you know that a traditional red velvet baked good does’t even call for food coloring? It really is all about using the cocoa powder and the vinegar together.

Maybe it was all about my handy prep cooks I had helping me.  I bought Meadow and I matching aprons and she is too stinking cute wearing hers.




Even Olive wanted to help out.  Well, kind of.




She was really just fascinated with the spoon.  It’s funny, you buy your kids all these toys, but really, they want to play with stuff you have lying around your house.

Every parent knows exactly what I am talking about.  Give kids a cardboard box and they will play for hours!
