Vegan chocolate donuts made out of tofu. Super easy, delicious, and completely free of soy flavor — seriously life-changing!
Did you know you could make donuts out of tofu? Yep, you read that right, tofu. These double chocolate tofu donuts only require 6 ingredients and are super chocolate-y and decadent. Enough to satisfy your donut cravings any day.
So, how do you go about transforming tofu into chocolate donuts?! Well, it starts with a dough made of soft tofu, all purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and cocoa powder.
Then you roll out the dough and split it — just like how you would make any pastry that requires a dough. Roll the segments out again, attach the ends, and you’ve got donuts! How easy is that?!
Note that unlike regular yeasted donuts, these will not expand too much upon frying. So, how your donuts look at this stage will be exactly how the finished product looks.
The hard part about frying these donuts is judging whether they are cooked or not. Since they already have a dark brown color, they are prone to getting burnt. Remember to keep an eye on them while they’re frying — I’ve tested that it does not take more than a total of 4 minutes to fry each donut. If you don’t want to fry, you can bake these at 375 degrees F (190 C) for 15 minutes. The donuts will have a slightly denser texture, but will be much healthier!
