Carrot Cake Doughnuts:

Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting:



  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the doughnut ingredients together in order. Mix well until you have a thick doughnut batter.
  3. Grease a non-stick 6-cavity donut pan and spoon out the doughnut batter evenly among the six cavities (you'll have a bit left over), smooth out the tops.
  4. Bake the doughnuts in the oven for 12-13 minutes, remove, and gently remove the doughnuts from the pan to allow them to cool on a wire rack.
  5. To make the cream cheese frosting, mix together the softened cream cheese and butter in a large bowl.
  6. Add the powdered sweetener and vanilla, mix again until you have a smooth creamy frosting. Chill the frosting before using on the doughnuts.
  7. Frost the cooled doughnuts with the prepared frosting and top with optional allergy-free sprinkles and shredded coconut if desired.
  8. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
