Turmeric Lemon Coconut Donuts
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
20 minute turmeric lemon donuts covered in sweet glaze and dusted with finely shredded coconut. The flavor is like lemon meringue meets golden milk!
Recipe type: Breakfast, Dessert, Donuts
Cuisine: Egg-Free, Dairy-Free
Serves: 12 small donuts
for the donuts:
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¾ cup REBBL Turmeric Lemon Tart Elixir
  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar
  • ⅓ cup plain non-dairy yogurt
  • zest of 1 organic lemon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil, plus extra for greasing the pan
for the topping:
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350° F. Lightly grease a donut pan with coconut oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, combine the flour, baking powder, turmeric, and salt.
  3. Add the Turmeric Lemon Tart Elixir, coconut sugar, yogurt, lemon zest, and vanilla.
  4. Stir a few times to just barely incorporate, then pour in the melted coconut oil and stir until combined, being careful not to over-mix. (Adding the coconut oil last will help prevent it from becoming solid and clumping.)
  5. Spoon or pipe the batter into the prepared donut pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the donuts comes out clean. Allow the donuts to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. While the donuts cool, prepare the glaze: In a wide bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and Turmeric Lemon Tart Elixir until no lumps remain. Add the shredded coconut to a separate wide bowl. Dip each donut in the glaze, letting any excess drip off, then coat in shredded coconut flakes. Repeat for the remaining donuts and serve.
For the yogurt, I recommend my homemade cashew yogurt recipe. It's super easy and low in sugar.

I use a Wilton donut pan that I bought from Crate & Barrel, but it looks like it's available on Amazon for a little cheaper. This recipe makes 12 small donuts with that pan; however, donut pans can vary a lot in size, so donut yield may vary. You might need to adjust your baking time accordingly.

Recipe lightly adapted from my Pumpkin Spice Donuts.

These donuts are egg-free and dairy-free, but not strictly vegan because REBBL Turmeric Lemon Tart Elixir contains organic honey.
