Vegan Biscoff Donuts Recipe

Do any other vegans get overly excited when they find another accidentally vegan food? And eat it all in one go? No? Just me?

As a relatively new vegan, I’m still getting to grips with which “junk foods” are okay for me to eat and which are not. Much to my delight, I recently discovered that Lotus Biscoff biscuits AND their caramelized spread are both on the “yes” list because neither contains any animal products! Yipee! (God bless Lotus)

Of course, you can just eat these two delicious things as they are (Biscoff spread with a spoon straight from the jar, anyone?) but there are SO many other delicious desserts you can make. I’ve seen cheesecakes, pies, cupcakes and loads of other genius recipe ideas but best of all…Biscoff donuts.

As my brother’s birthday was coming up I decided I’d make him some. He loves Biscoff and he loves donuts so this would make the perfect gift! I had a look online and there were many recipes for Biscoff donuts but not as many for a vegan-friendly version. I had a very exact image of how I wanted my final donut to look, and none of these recipes matched that. So, I decided to take it upon myself to create the vegan donut of my dreams.

These vegan Biscoff donuts are:

  • Light
  • Cinnamon-y
  • Cakey
  • Sweet
  • Easy
  • Indulgent
  • A treat to look at!

Baked, not fried.

I wanted my donuts to be light and cakey, not heavy and dense. This is purely because the heaviness is something that has always put me off eating donuts in the past. To achieve this, I used a slightly adjusted vegan cake recipe to make the batter and decided to bake them, rather than fry them in oil.

My kitchen is also relatively small and I didn’t fancy messing around with hot oil. I’m typically not any good at frying anything other than pancakes so I decided that baking them would be my best option. I purchased some donut pans from Amazon and they were totally worth the money because I’ve been making donuts constantly ever since. And if you bake donuts instead of frying them, that totally makes them healthy… amirite? For real though, using a donut pan makes preparation and clean up way easier!

Here’s what you’ll need to make these delicious vegan Biscoff donuts

  • A donut pan
  • Plain flour
  • Baking powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Vegan-friendly butter
  • Any plant-based milk
  • Vanilla essence
  • Icing sugar
  • Biscoff spread
  • Biscoff biscuits (optional)

The ingredients list may look long but these are super easy to make and there are no wildly unusual ingredients in there. I do believe Biscoff is now sold worldwide so you should be able to get your hands on the spread no problem. To complement the cinnamon flavor from the Biscoff frosting, be sure to add a little cinnamon powder to the donut batter too. This is one thing that is NOT optional. The subtle spice which contrasts so well with the sweetness and I just looove it!

If you decided to give these a go, I promise you’ll love them!

Enjoy.

These look delicious and I can't wait to make them! Would it be ok for me to make the doughnuts the night before, and then decorate in the morning? If so, what is the best way to store them? Thank you :)

Thank you so much for this recipe!! They're so delicious and so quick to make. I had to double everything the second time I made them because the first batch went so quickly (in less than 24h 😅)!
