- Combine flaxseed, soured oat milk, and sugars in a mixer and beat until combined.
- Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl and gradually add dry ingredients to wet.
- Add coconut oil and vanilla and beat until just combined. If it’s too dry, add more oat milk.
- Flour your surface and knead into a ball. Roll out to around 1.5cm thick.
- Cut out donuts and refrigerate for between 30 minutes and 2 hours.
- Heat a pot of vegetable oil that is around ¾ of the way full to 175C.
- Fry donuts a few at a time until they are golden on each side. Drain on kitchen roll.
How to make cinnamon icing:
- Combine all ingredients and mix until smooth.
- Icing can be as thick or as thin as you’d like depending on the layer of icing you’d like. Either add more icing sugar or more water until you reach the desired consistency.
- While donuts are still warm, submerge them in the icing and place on a wire rack to dry.
