Donuts are perhaps one of the most sinfully decadent of treats, especially given that they’re often enjoyed first thing in the morning as a breakfast stand-in. However, they certainly don’t have to be packed full of refined flours, sugars, and deep fried oils. And yes, they can even be raw, gluten-free, and vegan. If it sounds a little too good to be true, you obviously haven’t yet tried these raw vegan donuts complete with a chocolate glaze and white chocolate drizzle. Enjoy!
