Doughnuts! Was there ever a baked good that inspired such devotion? From Homer Simpson to World Doughnut Day - yep, it's a thing - we sure do love the cake with a hole.

Unfortunately, they also often come with a side-serve of the guilts. From their gooey jam-filled centers to the lip-smacking icing, they're a veritable sugar-laden fructose-fest - until now.

Enter stage left, Nexba's Perfect Baked Vegan Doughnuts. Fructose free and packed with nutrients,this super-healthy doughnut recipe also packs a probiotic punch with a sneaky pour of Nexba Mixed Berry Kombucha.

The good stuff

We’ve gone all out to create the perfect sugar-free and healthy vegan doughnut recipe, with a generous dollop of nutritional goodness:

  1. Cinammon. Where to start with this super spice? Loaded with antioxidants, it's also stacked with anti-inflammatory properties, can reduce your risk of heart disease, helps lower blood sugar levels and may even protect against some forms of cancer.
  2. Nut butter. Packed with nutrients such as vitamins E and B6, nut butter is an awesome source of protein, fibre and healthy fats. (Just be mindful that some brands of nut butter can have added salt, sugar, preservatives, and unhealthy fats that could do more harm than good, so check your labels, peeps!)
  3. Coconut. We could go on forever about the humble coconut, but know this: They're unspeakably high in manganese, which is critical for bone health, packed with copper and iron, which help form red blood cells, and chock full of antioxidants.

Yep, we get it - water is best to keep kids healthy and hydrated. But sometimes plain old H2O gets a big fat H2-NO. You need something that feels like a treat without giving them a giant dose of sugar.

The World Health Organisation recommends limiting ourselves to no more than 6 teaspoons of sugar per day. However, many of us eat (and drink) much, much more - and it ain’t great for our health. In fact, sugar has been linked to some of the most common health problems of our times.
