If you live in Canada you know it's Timbits, not donut holes. We hate to break it to you, the classic two bite donuts that you grew up eating, are not vegan. Our simple and delicious recipe is though! Happy Birthday Canada, let's make it a vegan one.

1/2cuplukewarm almond milk
2tspactive dry yeast
1tbspground flax seed
1 3/4cupall-purpose flour
1tbspvital wheat glutenheaping
vegetable oilfor deep frying
1/2cupwhite sugarfor dusting
Add your yeast and white sugar to your warm almond milk and whisk until dissolved. Set aside for about ten minutes to foam. If it doesn't foam your yeast may be expired or milk too warm.
Add your ground flax seeds and vanilla to your melted butter and set aside.
Add your butter mixture to your yeast mixture and whisk to combine.
To a large bowl add your flour, vital wheat gluten, and nutmeg. Mix until combined. Add your wet mixture to your dry and either with a wooden spoon mix it in, but preferably if you have a stand mixer with a dough hook mix that until just combined.
If your dough is looking a little try add about 1 tablespoon of water and mix. Knead until you have a smooth dough.
To a large greased bowl add your dough and cover with clear wrap. Place in a dark warm place to rise for at least one hour or double in size. We put ours in our oven (OFF).
Once it has doubled in size, roll your dough on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick. Using a 1 inch round cookie cutter cut out your donuts until you no longer have any dough left. Place them on a lined baking sheet and cover with a dish cloth and set aside in a warm dark place to rise for another 20-30 minutes.
Once they are done rising, heat your oil to about 325F and deep fry your donuts for about 30-45 seconds on each side. Only fry about 3-5 donuts at a time to avoid burning.
Place fried donuts on a paper towel lined plate and after about 30 seconds of cooling down roll them in a sugar dusting. Repeat until all your donuts are fried and dusted.
