I don’t know about you guys, but girl’s nights are meant for talking, movie watching and ALL the sugar!
I’m pretty sure that I usually don’t want dessert except for when I’m hanging with my best girl friends. This past week some of my friends who live in our city in China got together to watch the new Gilmore Girl season.
Egh. How I feel about the new episodes is a completely different post topic, but let’s just say I wish they had kept season 7 the end of the show.
Anyways. We all had dinner together while watching the show and then out came the desserts.
Not dessert. Desserts.
I have a tendency to go overboard with food when I’m hosting, so we ended up having 3 kinds of desserts. We had Jamie Oliver’s Vegan Brownies (AMAZING btw), Vegan Doughnut Holes (let me know if you want this recipe cause they were also amazing!) and lastly these Baked Vegan Powdered Doughnuts.
Growing up, powdered doughnuts were always my favorite kind of doughnuts. Remember the gas stations that sold the chocolate covered doughnuts and the powdered doughnuts in separate packs? Well, I always chose the powdered doughnuts. They were just so fluffy and sweet and delicious.
I definitely am not saying these Baked Vegan Powdered Doughnuts are healthy, but they’re a great way to transition to eating a more plant-based diet and they can definitely impress your non-vegan friends and family.
These Baked Vegan Powdered Doughnuts are baked, not fried and take a short amount of time to make. They’re soft and fluffy and delicious when dipped in tea or coffee. Please let me know if you give these Baked Vegan Powdered Doughnuts a try and what you think!
