For those people who thinks vegan is boring and always being deprived on certain food. I certainly ensure you are wrong.
In this little segment of mine, I wanna start a recipe post where I can share all various different interesting vegan food that you can make at home that are healthy and surely hearty as well. I have been posting a tons of vegan food on instagram and I got a lot of people asking if I could share some recipe and here what I am doing.

For first post, I would like to share my recent instagram post which is donut. I mean who doesn't like donuts, right? Just what a great start for this little recipe post.

Donuts with Chocolate and Coconut Sprinkle:

Donut ingredients:
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 tbsp dried yeast
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup apple puree
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup date syrup
1 cup warm water.

Chocolate Glazing and Topping:
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tbsp cacao powder
shredded coconut
almond flakes
cacao nibs

1. In a medium bowl, combine the yeast with warm water (not too hot or too cold) and stir to dissolve the yeast. Leave it for a couple minutes. After it activates, you can start see bubble coming up and you know your yeast is ready and activates.
2. Add in the apple puree, date syrup, and lemon juice. Mix well.
3.In a seperate bowl, combine buckwheat flour and salt then stir well.
4. Slowly combine half the dry ingredient into the wet ingredient and mix. Then covering with a towel and letting rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
5. Once it doubled in size, add the remain dry ingredient and mix to create a dough.
6. Cover the dough with towel and let it sit for another 30 minutes.
7. Flour your working space, divide your dough into a 6 (preferably same size) ball.
8. To create a hole, use a round cookie cutter (or in my case I just use a water bottle cap) to create a donut holes. Set the small ball aside, you can bake a small donut ball as well.
9. Place them on baking tray lined with parchment paper, and let it sit for the final 30 minutes.
10. Preheat oven to 180°C
11. Bake for 10-15 minutes, being careful not to over bake as you don't the bottoms too brown.
12. Now, time to prepare the chocolate glaze.
13. In a saucepan on low heat, melt your coconut oil and coconut sugar. Slowly add in cacao powder and stir well. Be careful not to burn the mixture.
14. Once the donuts are done, let them cool for couple minutes and start glazing.
Dunk in half of your donut in the chocolate glaze and sprinkle with coconut, almond and cacao nibs. (You can be creative with the toppings).
15. Serve immediately or store in air tight container for up to 2 days.
