These secretly healthy, vegan donuts are so easy to make but look impressive and taste divine.

Prep Time


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease a 6-hole muffin tin well.

  2. Place the oats in your Ninja Kitchen blender and whizz up on a low setting for about 30 seconds – 1 minute to form a flour. Tip into a bowl and add the oat flour, peanut flour, cinnamon and baking powder.

  3. Whisk together the milk and vinegar and leave to stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile whisk together the peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla.

  4. Pour both into the dry ingredients and stir to combine and form a batter. Divide this between the donut holes to reach the top.

  5. Bake for 25 minutes until golden then leave to cool before transferring to a wire rack.

  6. Once the donuts have cooled, whisk together the cocoa/cacao powder with the boiling water, maple syrup and peanut butter until smooth (add a touch of almond milk if needed). Spoon over each donut then sprinkle over decorations. Enjoy!

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time.

Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
