Vegan Dunkin' Donuts Munchkins

by Aliza de Lima

4min read

Enjoy these delicious, rich and chocolatey, no-fry doughnut bites, inspired by the infamous Dunkin’ Donuts’ butternut munchkins. These round, vibrant orange nostalgic gems were definitely a favourite for me growing up in the Philippines and I felt it was about time to develop a recipe so I could make them from home.

Whether they were part of your childhood or not (here’s to looking at you, America) I hope you enjoy biting into a pillowy soft vegan Dunkin’ just as much as I do.

Preheat the oven to 190 C.


Start with making your doughnuts. In a bowl, combine sugar, flour, cocoa powder before adding remaining wet ingredients.


Once combined, fill a cake pop mould to the brim using a spoon or piping bag. Once all are filled, cover with the lid and pop into the oven to bake for 15 minutes. A fork or toothpick should come out clean when cooked. Place doughnuts on a cooling tray or flat surface for 20 minutes to cool down before glazing.


While your doughnuts are cooling, prepare chocolate glaze by mixing sugar, cocoa powder and plant-based milk together in a bowl. You can tell it’s ready when it looks glossy and has quite a thick consistency. Set aside.


For the coconut topping mix desiccated coconut, icing sugar, melted butter and food colouring in a bowl. This creates the vibrant orange colour that makes the infamous Dunkin' Donut butternut munchkin coating. Mix thoroughly until even. If you’re not into coconut, you can replace it with bread crumbs or other toppings of choice. Or stick with the chocolate glazing if preferred.


Once the doughnuts have cooled, pour the chocolate glaze over or individually dip to cover with a fork. Once all glazed, roll doughnuts in the coconut topping individually until fully coated. Serve and enjoy!
