We paired up with Coffee-Direct.co.uk to bring you an indulgent doughnuts recipe that proves Vganuary can be as sweet as it is healthy.

Since 2014, Veganuary has inspired over one million people in 192 countries to go vegan for January.

A lot of us have joined the trend as a way to feel healthier after an indulgent December. And yes, veggie-based meals, sides and dips are delicious and nutritious, but you deserve to put a little sweet treat in there, too.

Your diet doesn’t have to be exclusively vegetables, hummus and cheese alternatives. These doughnuts are the perfect indulgence for a cosy night in — and very easy to make.
