For a vanilla donut, simply omit the cocoa!

Method
1) Preheat oven to 320. Spray a donut pan with nonstick spray or use a piece of parchment paper to grease it with a bit of coconut oil.
2) Combine the dry ingredients, followed by the egg, applesauce, and a splash of unsweetened cashew milk.
3) Pour batter into a large ziplock bag and cut off the tip. Pipe batter evenly amongst 8 donuts. Tap pan gently against the counter to remove any air bubbles so that the end product will be some nicely shaped donuts!

4) Bake for 8 minutes; cool for 5. Meanwhile, prep the glaze by quickly whisking together melted coconut oil and sweetener.
5) Dip donut in glaze and allow to harden for 2 minutes.
