  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup maple syrup and 1 tbsp
  • ¼ cup almond milk and 1 tbsp
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ tbsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • 3 tbsp diced pecans

Pecan Glaze

  • 2 tbsp vegan butter melted
  • cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup confectionery sugar
  • Pinch salt

Toasted Pecans

  • 2 tbsp pecans
  • ½ tbsp vegan butter melted
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch sugar



  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all your dry ingredients, other than pecans, and whisk.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, combine all your wet ingredients and whisk.
  • Slowly mix your wet ingredients into your dry until they are well combined.
  • Slowly fold in your pecans.
  • Grease your donut tray well. Fill each tray evenly, with the mixture coming right to the top of the mold.
  • Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until you can insert a toothpick within the donut and it comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 15-30 minutes prior to frosting.

Toasted Pecans

  • While donuts are cooling off, preheat your oven to 300 degrees f. (although, it should already be warm).
  • Toss pecans with butter, salt and sugar in a bowl.
  • Place on sheet pan and cook for 8 minutes, then flip and cook for another 8 minutes.
  • Set aside until the donuts are frosted then sprinkle the pecans on top while frosting is wet.

Maple Frosting

  • Combine all ingredients into a bowl until smooth (it will be thick but drippy).
  • To frost donuts, dip them into the frosting face down then pull up and place on cooling rack. See tip.


Place cooling rack over sink so the frosting drips directly into the sink.
