Surprise vegan donuts!

By , February 17, 2018 9:36 pm

We had a surprise stop on the vegan donut tour today!

Holcomb Hollow is a gluten free, vegan, and dairy free bakery that sells in a few retail locations in our county. Steven recently picked up some of their cookies and a muffin from a coffee shop, then happened to see they were having a grand opening (at their own location!) with free coffee, muffins, and an oatmeal bar this week. He didn’t have to tell me twice – I immediately put it on my calendar! I liked their muffin and cookies, and I knew Mom would love checking it out with me.

What I didn’t know until I got there was that they were going to have donuts too. WHUUUUUUUUUUT.

And, guys, you could take as many donuts as you wanted off of these trays to try.


Um, say whuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut.

Each donut had a vanilla or chocolate base, and was baked. We tried the lemon frosting, berry frosting, and coffee frosting. We liked lemon the best!

Sigh, I have to report that the donuts didn’t really do it for me, though. The frosting flavors were well done, but the donut base was a bit too spongy and just not… donut-y enough. Fun to try though!

Their muffins are AMAZING though. We tried chocolate, chocolate chip, banana, carrot cake, and blueberry lemon.

And came home with (purchased) berry crumble, blueberry lemon, and banana. Yummmmm. Their muffins are where it’s at! I’ll definitely be going back for those!

    I just saw a large selection of vegan donuts at Whole Foods today and thought of you!

    I’m glad the opening wasn’t a total waste with the tasty muffins.

    Are there vegan “cake” vs “yeasted” donuts? Do you have a preference between those two textures?

      OOoooooo! Did they look good?

      Me too! The muffins are AMAZING! I got 6 and we ate a few and froze some to have as treats later.

      I do believe there are both available in vegan (not here, but elsewhere), and I definitely prefer yeasted.

    There have never been so many vegan and vegan-friendly products as there are now, and more are coming on the market every day.

  4. I’m too shocked over the fact that everything was FREE and you could take as much as you wanted to really comprehend anything else in this post. THAT’S AMAZING. I’m glad the muffins were good, too, even if the donuts were not up to your standards. If forced to choose, I’d probably pick muffins over donuts in a head-to-head pastry battle anyway, so I’m glad to hear a good report on those!

      It was so amazing!!!! I wasn’t fully comprehending it when I was there “Like, try whatever? Even these full size donuts?!?!” Very generous!!!

      Ahh, so you’re a muffin fan! Who makes your favorite?

      • I keep forgetting to respond to this – you know, I don’t think I have a favorite! Or at least, I couldn’t identify a favorite, other than the ones made from a box mix hahaha. I should set a goal like your donut goal to try to find the best muffin!
