The dough
White flour, 500 g
Dry yeast, 1 tablespoon
Sugar, 60 g
Salt, 1/4 flat teaspoon
Apple puree without added sugar, 60 g
Plant milk, 210 ml (or 205 g)
Coconut oil, 45 g (3 heaping teaspoons)
Pure vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon
Brandy, 2 teaspoons
or any other alcoholic beverage
The oil for frying
Canola oil, 1/4 cup
The pistachio ganache filling
Vegan whipped cream, 250 ml
White chocolate, 85 g
Pistachio puree, 20 g


‎1. Slowly mix the flour together with the yeast and sugar (with a kneading hook) in the mixer bowl. ‎Add the apple puree, plant milk and vanilla extract, and continue to mix on a slow-medium speed ‎for another 10 minutes until a uniform dough is obtained. Add the salt and coconut oil (each time a ‎teaspoon, let each teaspoon "swallow" in the dough), and knead for another 2 minutes until a ‎smooth dough is obtained. Towards the end add the brandy.‎
‎2. Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover and rise for about two hours or until doubled in ‎volume.‎
‎3. Place the dough on baking paper, divide it into parts weighing 100 g each and roll into balls. Place ‎the balls at intervals on a baking pan lined with baking paper.‎
‎4. Cover for another rising of about 30-45 minutes until doubled in volume (be careful not to touch ‎the dough with the cover).‎
‎5. Meanwhile, prepare the pistachio ganache: bring the vegan whipped cream to a boil, pour over ‎the white chocolate and pistachio puree, and mix until smooth.‎
‎6. Heat the oil in a pan (see more information) to 320°F (160°C) (it is important to keep this in mind, ‎it is advisable to use a thermometer) and fry each donut for about a minute and a half on each ‎side.‎
‎7. Fill each donut with the pistachio ganache using a syringe or pastry bag with a smooth round ‎pastry tip, and also spread the ganache on top as well (you can also garnish with vegan whipped ‎cream). Perfect pistachio vegan donuts are obtained!‎
‎8. Bon appetite (:‎
