Posted on Oct 4, 2018

As I have mentioned many times before I am not vegan but I am strictly vegetarian. When possible I like to make my bakes vegan. It’s not always possible, but I try when I can so as many people as possible can enjoy my treats. These vegan sugar free chocolate chip pumpkin donuts were so easy to keep vegan. The only fat I used was a light vegetable oil, there was no need for butter or cream. The chocolate chips are dark chocolate so there is no dairy in them. Please keep this in mind if you are making these for a vegan friend. Not all chocolate is vegan-friendly.

To shave off a few calories, so there would be less guilt when shovelling multiple donuts into my mouth, I used a 0 calorie sweetener. Natvia Natural Sweetener is my sweetener of choice, its 100% natural and did I mention 0 calories? You can replace with any sweetener of your choice, and if you are not worried about a few extra calories then just use sugar.



If sugar is not an issue for you, then I have a lovely recipe for Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donuts, that you may like to try.

Small Batch.


One thing I really like about making cake style donuts, is they are generally made in small batches. So temptation can only last for a few days! But you can easily double or triple this recipe for a larger batch. So happy October everyone and let’s enjoy all the lovely pumpkin goodness that is going around.

  • Lightly grease a 6 hole donut pan with vegan-friendly oil/spread and place to one side.
