Pistachio and Cranberry Bite Baked Donuts with Vanilla Icing Recipe

Course: Sweet Treats
Servings: 6


  • 1 cup organic unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup un-refined evaporated cane sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¾ cup original almond milk plus ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup neutral tasting oil safflower
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • *3 tablespoons plus 1 tablespoon Setton Farms Pistachio Kernels, chopped
  • *1 tablespoon plus 1 tablespoon, dried cranberries, roughly chopped
  • *To make the the recipe even faster substitute 5 Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites, finely chopped
  • Vanilla Icing:
  • 2 teaspoons non-hydrogenated buttery spread
  • ½ cups organic powdered sugar
  • tablespoon soymilk creamer or almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash of sea salt
  • In a small pot melt buttery spread and add in powdered sugar. Whisk until lumpy. Add soymilk creamer or almond milk, vanilla extract and salt. Whisk until smooth, about 1 minute and remove from heat.


  • Pre-heat oven to 350●.
  • In a large bowl, combine flours, baking powder, sugar and sea salt and whisk until uniform.
  • In a small bowl, add almond milk and apple cider vinegar and set aside to curdle, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Add almond milk mixture, oil and vanilla extract to dry ingredients. Whisk until uniform. Fold 3 tablespoons pistachios and 1 tablespoon cranberries (or 3 Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites) into batter.
  • Grease donut pan generously with cooking spray and pour batter into each donut shape. Leave about ¼ inch for batter to rise and clean any excess batter from center of each donut to prevent sticking.
  • Bake for about 21-24 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool before glazing. Place on a cooling rack over a baking sheet with walls, to collect icing.
  • To glaze donuts, drizzle a small amount of glaze over each donut, making sure there is a baking sheet to catch the run-off. Sprinkle right away with remaining pistachios and cranberries, or Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites before glaze hardens. Set aside to cool.
