  • 1/4 cup vegan milk (hemp seed milk or oat milk)
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar (must be apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract




  • 315 grams Artisan Baker’s Blend or Better Batter Original Blend

  • 3 teaspoons apple pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt



  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon or apple pie spice
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter, melted



Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly grease two standard doughnut pans.


In a large bowl mix together, apple cider, sugar, milk, apple sauce, vinegar, oil, and vanilla. After wet mixture is fully combined, add in flour, apple pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Fold everything together until well mixed. Be careful not to over mix.


Using a piping bag, pipe the dough into the prepared doughnut molds, filling 3/4 of the way.


Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.


Once the doughnuts are cooled, dip the doughnut into the melted butter substitute making sure to fully coat the doughnut. Then, roll the doughnut onto the cinnamon sugar or apple pie spice mixture until the doughnut is fully coated; place on a rack. Repeat this with the rest of the doughnuts until all of the doughnuts are buttered and sugar coated. Enjoy!
