Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Donuts

If you've read my blog before, you'll know I am getting really into making donuts (baked donuts that is) since purchasing these silicone donut pans. I love experimenting with new flavours, and seeing as mint and chocolate are up there with my favourite flavour combinations, it would be rude to not make it into a donut!

Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Donuts

These vegan mint chocolate chip donuts went down a treat, even with my Dad who is not a big fan of mint. I styled them like mint chocolate chip ice cream, with the addition of dark chocolate chips on top giving it that little something extra. I could really do with some mint chocolate chip ice cream right now - as I'm writing this it's 10am and already 20˚ celsius, here in the UK that is very unusual and I am not used to the heat! 

Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Donuts

These donuts are a doughy (as they should be), minty and chocolatey wonder, great for a refreshing sweet treat. Go on, give them a go - you know you want to!

Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Donuts

Total time: 45 Minutes Plus Cooling Time
Yield: 9 Donuts
  • 170g Plain Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 40g Cocoa Powder
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 175ml Dairy-Free Milk
  • 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
  • 180g Icing Sugar
  • A Few Drops Mint Extract
  • 50ml Cold Water
  • A Few Drops Green Food Colouring Gel
  • 50g Dark Chocolate Chips
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180ยบ celsius.
  2. If necessary, grease your donut pan (I used these silicone ones, so no greasing was necessary!).
  3. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Fold in the milk and lemon juice, stirring lightly until combined (use as much milk as you need to to make a smooth batter.
  5. Transfer your mixture to a piping bag - top tip, put your piping bag into a pint glass, then fill it up, this makes it easier to pour the mixture in!
  6. Pipe the mixture into the donut pan, filling each donut hole about half full.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the donuts have risen.
  8. Leave to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack, turning the donuts over so the bottom side doesn't get soggy as they cool.
  9. When the donuts are fully cooled begin making the icing.
  10. Sieve the icing sugar, then stir in the water, food colouring and mint extract and mix until a smooth, thick icing is formed.
  11. Spoon the icing onto the donuts carefully, then top with chocolate chips.
