Who doesn't love a fun Donut theme! These St. Patrick's Day Green Donuts are delicious and spot on for the day! Enjoy with friends

Spring is officially around the corner! Vaccines are now rolling out and while we aren’t out of this covid mess yet, I am feeling a little more hopeful that spring and summer will look a whole lot brighter than this past winter. Spring as I have written about in the past was never my favourite season. It was too wet, damp and cold but just like the seasons, perspectives can change too. Now I see growth, expansion and rejuvenation. Spring is renewal and after winter it is literally a breath of fresh air.

Nothing says Spring like green. The leaves start to find their way back, grass sheds its brownish hue and new growth starts to appear. I have been dreaming about green donuts for a couple of weeks now and couldn’t wait to whip some up for you guys. The green gets its sheen from the superfood spirulina. There are blue and green spirulinas so choose whatever colour calls to you. For these, I chose green but I’m thinking I’ll do a mixed batch for fun next time I bake them.

Servings 12 donuts


  • oven
  • donut mould



  • ½ cup cashew milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • cup non dairy yogurt
  • 1 tsp spirulina
  • cups oat flour (finely ground oats)
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp salt


  • cup icing sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp spirulina


  • Spray or grease a donut pan. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a bowl whisk cashew milk, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, yogurt and spirulina together. In a separate bowl whisk dry ingredients. Add wet to dry and mix completely.
  • Use a spoon or a piping bag to place batter into the donut pan. This recipe yields 12 donuts.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. Turn out onto a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before glazing.
  • Sift your powdered sugar, this will prevent your glaze from having lumps.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and water (or milk) until desired consistency. Add 1/4 tsp more milk at a time until it's as thin as you like. If it becomes too thin, add more powdered sugar. If your glaze has lumps, you can use a hand mixer to smooth it out.
  • Add in spirulina and stir to completely combine.
  • Place the wire rack of donuts on top of a sheet pan to catch extra glaze drips. Grasp each donut by the sides and dunk into the glaze, letting it drain off for a few seconds. Then flip over and place the donut back onto the wire rack. Top with rose petals or sprinkles immediately, as the glaze firms up quickly.
