These mini vegan blueberry donuts are the cutest, softest mini vegan donuts you'll ever taste!
A soft spongy donut ring with juicy fresh blueberries scattered evenly around each donut to create a beautiful confection.
The recipe is exactly the same as my Super Simple Gluten Free Blueberry and Peach Cake, but here, I've scrapped the peach [as they'd make our donuts a little too juicy] and scaled down the quantity of ingredients. To make the perfect mini vegan and gluten free Blueberry donuts.
Things to note about the recipe
Like a lot of my gluten free cake recipes such as my Strawberry and Chocolate chip banana bread this recipe also includes Xanthan gum. This ingredient is quite vital in gluten free bakes to prevent then from being crumbly. As it acts as a stabiliser, in the same way gluten does in normal plain/self-raising flour.
For this recipe I have also used tinned peaches ‘in juice’. This is important to note when making your own, that you don’t purchase peaches ‘in syrup’. As this means your peaches have just been stored in sugar.
So the nutritional benefits of the peach’s in your cake, has gone out the window. As your peaches will no longer have the same benefits/nutrients. As it has now nearly all sugar from the syrup its absorbed.
Instead opt for peaches stored in the juice of the peach or peel a fresh peach and slice them yourself!

Sounds delicious. It's not easy to find good Gluten free recipes. Thanks!
Thank you, no unfortunately not, but I've got quite a few on my blog and even more heading your way so stay tuned x
I love doughnuts! Especially spongy ones! But since I transitioned into a vegan diet, I rarely buy doughnuts. But now, I can finally make them for myself. Thank you so much x
Thanks Martina, so happy you like them x
I love anything blueberry! I have been gluten free for about 10years now. And gluten free donuts are hard to find. And I have tried a few recipes and they never really seemed to work out. I am going to try yours out! They look good and the recipe seems easy. I love easy!
Thanks Cori! The recipe is fantastic and definitely super simple, I'd love to hear what you think when you make them x
I personally like having donuts. I have never made my own and would like to try this out. I love blueberries so much.
Thank you, and there's more blueberry recipes coming your way so stay tuned x

I am just fascinated by this idea. Most especially because my husband loves donuts and they are so bad for him. I will give these a try though.
Yes these are definitely not like your classic glazed donuts, but rather a much healthier alternative x
