  • air fryer


Donut Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup oat flour 180 grams
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup vegan yogurt works best with thick yogurt, not runny
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • dash of salt
  • dash of vanilla

Topping Ingredients

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • melted coconut oil


  • To a large bowl, add all of the donut ingredients. Combine them well, but be careful not to overmix.
  • Refrigerate the donut dough for 15-20 minutes so it can harden and become easier to shape.
  • Once the dough has chilled, form balls that are about 1 inch in diameter. You will get about 8 donut holes from this recipe.
  • Bake the donuts in the air fryer at 350*F for 8 minutes, flipping them halfway.
  • Note: keep in mind that if you make the donut holes bigger or smaller, the bake time will change. Bake for less for smaller donuts, and give them more time if they are larger.
  • While the donuts are baking, prepare two bowls- one with melted coconut oil and one with the cinnamon sugar mix.
  • Once the donuts have cooked, give them just a few minutes to cool off.
  • Dunk each donut in the bowl of melted coconut oil. Immediately after, roll them around in the cinnamon sugar mix.
  • These are best enjoyed when warm!



If you want to make these with all purpose flour, you can replace the oat flour with 1 cup all purpose flour (120 grams) or the same amount of whole wheat flour.
