Maple donuts are a fall-time staple! These vegan gluten free maple donuts are as easy to make at home and as cakey, moist, and delicious as the ones you'll find at the bakery! I used purecane's 1:1 sugar substitute brown sugar and maple syrup in the batter and the result is a buttery and delicious donut thats great plain, glazed with maple butter, or spread with my famous vegan cinnamon cream cheese frosting!

1

Preheat the oven to 350

2

Mix the almond milk, melted vegan butter, maple syrup, sugar or purecane, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Then, add the flour and mix until a thick batter is formed.

3

Spoon the batter into 18 silicone donut molds that have been sprayed with nonstick spray. Be careful not to over fill the molds. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the donuts have risen.

4

While the donuts are baking, either whisk together the maple glaze ingredients in a bowl or use an electric hand mixer to mix the vegan cinnamon cream cheese glaze ingredients. I like to microwave my cinnamon cream cheese glaze for about 20 seconds to make the donuts easier to dip in! Once the donuts are done baking, remove them from the molds and allow them to cool for 2 minutes. Dip each donut into the maple glaze before serving.

5

Bring a small skillet greased with coconut oil spray or vegan butter to medium heat, add the pecans and maple syrup and cook for about 2 minutes or until the syrup is bubbling, fragrant, and the pecans are browned. Allow the pecans to cool before sprinkling on top of the vegan maple donuts
