Coconut butter donut sandwiches that are vegan, no bake and made with less than 10 ingredients. These are the perfect Valentine’s Day treat!
In the spirit of love and Valentine’s Day, I made these cute coconut butter donut sandwiches! They are SO simple, don’t require any baking, and are completely vegan. YAY! I’m really pumped with how these turned out, and you only need a handful of ingredients. Thanks to Ashley from Fit Mitten Kitchen – her Neapolitan coconut butter cups were the inspiration behind this recipe.
The bottom half of the donut sandwich has two different layers of coconut butter, cacao and powdered peanut butter. You can very easily swap out ingredients and use whatever flavor combinations you want, but coconut butter is a key ingredient!
Coconut Butter Donut Sandwiches
This recipe makes 16 mini coconut butter donuts, or 8 sandwiches. I used my handy silicone donut pans because they’re much easier to use than the metal kind, and they’re small enough that I can put both sets in my freezer at the same time.
My favorite thing about using coconut butter and coconut oil in this recipe is that you don’t have to bake it! Every layer of the donuts are basically melted together, then placed in the freezer to become solid again. You can make as many layers as you want, as long as it can fit into the mini donut molds. I prefer using powdered peanut butter with this recipe because it melts down really easily with the coconut butter and still has a really nice flavor.
There’s a nice dollop of coconut whipped cream mixed with freeze-dried raspberries in the middle of each donut sandwich. You can swap it out for dairy-free vanilla ice cream or omit completely. The coconut whipped cream melts pretty quickly, and I’d recommend adding it right before you plan on serving the donuts. I store the extras in the freezer and then let them thaw out for a couple of minutes before eating.
You can use any amount of the whipped cream and raspberries, but have fun and Happy Valentine’s Day!
