From Food Network Challenges to Best of New York, vegan doughnuts are taking the world of pastries by storm!

Accolades

Last April, Mighty-O-Donut shocked foodies everywhere when they won the “Food Network Challenge: Donut Champions” edition, edging out the contest favorite and two other “more traditional” competitors. Mighty-O’s doughnuts contain no chemical preservatives, no hydrogenated oils, no trans fat, no coloring or artificial flavors, and no animal derived ingredients. That’s right, the winning doughnuts were vegan!

Then, in December, New York City’s first vegan doughnut shop opened for business. Just a couple of months later, Dun-Well Doughnuts was named the best doughnut in the city! Not the best vegan doughnut, the best cruelty-free doughnut, or the best healthy doughnut. The best doughnut…PERIOD!

Can’t Get Enough

Pretty awesome news. And it’s indicative of a larger trend that’s been sweeping the nation. People across the U.S. and Canada just can’t seem to get enough doughnuts. The more creative the better!

Perhaps even more surprising, vegan doughnut shops are opening their doors across the country, including Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland, Oregon and Ronald’s Donuts in Las Vegas, Nevada. And recipes are also popping up all over the internet. From fruit-filled to chocolate-topped, there’s now a vegan doughnut recipe for every taste, mood or occasion.

Eat More Doughnuts?

Although some scientists are now recommending eating doughnuts for breakfast to help you lose weight (!), we realize these sweet little o’s are not exactly a health food. However, the vegan versions of many popular doughnuts are definitely more wholesome than their conventional counterparts! Free of eggs, dairy, and other animal products, vegan doughnuts are cholesterol-free, and typically contain no saturated fat. And most at-home recipes will be baked, not fried, so they are also lower in total fat.

The last part about scientists recommending doughnuts to lose weight made me laugh, yeah right! laugh.gif

But anywho, vegan doughnuts are totally delicious and I wish I had somewhere closer to my house that sold them. There are a lot of tasty recipes in the link, as soon as I get a doughnut pan this is happening drool.gif

Fyi Ronald's Donuts in Vegas is not a "vegan donut shop". It's a donut shop that sells some vegan donuts. They are not all vegan.

Even that would be way better, if all doughnut shops started carrying at least a few vegan items. It's so easy to make them without animal products I don't see why they don't, it would appeal to us vegans and also people with food allergies and such.

Sounds a lot like Fritz pastry, they sell vegan donuts and various other vegan goodies but it's not all vegan.

I had a vegan donut in Bar Harbor, Maine a few years ago. It was so divine - nothing fancy, just a wonderful, old-fashioned donut to dip in my coffee. *sigh* I haven't seen one since. sad.gif

Why would donuts ever need eggs? lick.gif

I had a vegan chocolate donut from Voodoo in Portland. It was so good.

My husband made me vegan beignets over the weekend. They were delicious!


I eat everything that nature voluntarily gives: fruits, vegetables, and the products of plants. But I ask you to spare me what animals are forced to surrender: meat, milk, and cheese. ~Author Unknown
