These super moist Vegan Pineapple Coconut Donuts are the perfect summertime treat. I haven’t made donuts for a while, the last donut recipe I made was my Vegan Pumpkin Donuts last year. I wanted to make a summertime donut before summer ended. This donut turned out to be quite a delicious treat!
To make these yummy Vegan Pineapple Coconut donuts which are also gluten-free, I used cornmeal and rice flour (white rice). The cornmeal added a beautiful color to the donuts, plus I added crushed pineapples for pineapple flavor. Fresh coconut milk also added a delicious coconut flavor. I ended up making 6 full-size donuts, I filled my pan with the batter without any problems and they baked up perfectly.
I also made a Pineapple Coconut Glaze for Donuts that was so delicious, made with coconut milk, pineapple juice, and organic powder sugar. There are many brands of organic powdered sugar on the market like Wholesome Organic Confectioners Powdered Sugar. You can make your own by processing organic cane sugar in a high-speed blender.
