Raz­zle Daz­zle Valen­tine Doughnuts

Makes 6 doughnuts.

Needed: dough­nut pan


1 cup flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 tea­spoons bak­ing powder

pinch of salt

dash of nutmeg

dash of cinnamon

1/2 cup almond milk (any non-dairy milk is fine)

1/2 tea­spoon apple cider vinegar

1/2 tea­spoon vanilla

Egg replacer (equiv­a­lent of 1 egg)

1/4 cup vegan mar­garine (melted– then cooled. Mustn’t be too hot when added to mixture!)

Choco­late Glaze:

1/2 –3/4 cup of vegan choco­late chips

1 table­spoon coconut oil

red sparkling sprinkles


1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F

2. In a large bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients.

3. In another bowl, whisk together wet ingredients.

4. Add wet mix­ture to dry mix­ture and mix together until just combined.

5. Scoop out your mix­ture into a pre­pared dough­nut pan. Don’t put too much mix­ture in! Make sure it is level or below the sides of the pan so it doesn’t bal­loon up in the bak­ing process.

6. Bake for 12 min­utes or until a tooth­pick inserted comes out dry. Let cool a few min­utes before turn­ing the dough­nuts out of the pan to cool completely.

Choco­late Glaze:

1. Melt 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of vegan choco­late chips and coconut oil in the microwave for inter­vals of 30 sec­onds. Stir­ring in between until melted completely.

2. Dip cooled dough­nuts half way in the choco­late glaze turn­ing as you pull them out to avoid drip­ping down the sides.

3. Dip the glazed dough­nuts into another bowl of sparkling red sprinkles.

4. Serve and enjoy!


Wish­ing all you lovers and friends out there a Happy Valentine’s Day from Oy Vegan!

First veJEWtarian Meeting– A Success!

This past Tues­day evening, a group of peo­ple met at Sadie’s Diner for a deli­cious din­ner and some lively dis­cus­sion. We talked about our veg­gie jour­neys, that is, our rea­sons for becom­ing vegan/vegetarian which lead to plenty of lively debate and dis­cus­sion. We dis­cussed health, the envi­ron­ment and ani­mal wel­fare issues.We were even vis­ited by Rabbi Aaron Levy of Toronto’s Makom.

On the sub­way on Wednes­day morn­ing, I was pleas­antly sur­prised to see that the front cover of 24H news­pa­per fea­tured Megan Park of The Secret Life of the Amer­i­can Teenager unveil­ing a new Peta anti-fur ad at Yonge and Dundas.


So timely con­sid­er­ing our dis­cus­sion Tuesday!

It was a great evening and I look for­ward to more!
