Eggnog Donuts with Eggnog Glaze for the breakfast WIN! These are easy to make and dairy free. (Thanks to Silk for sponsoring this post!)
Can I say yay to the fact that it’s Monday and a new week?? Last week was rough! I had 3 out of 4 kids sick with colds, then two got pink eye. So fun! (insert eye roll here) I’ve never washed my hands so much in my life!
And then I spent all of my Saturday morning in urgent care with my 11 year old, who had had a cold for a long time and was complaining of an ear ache. Turns out the poor kid had ear infections in both of his ears and a red throat. Antibiotics for him! I’m just waiting to be the next one to get it… Oh and then the crown on my molar broke so I have to go in and get that fixed. Fun times!
But then I remember that I’m healthy, my kids are getting back to normal and it’s December, which means CHRISTMASTIME!!!! We got our tree up and decorated yesterday. And I have some nog in the fridge. These things make me happy. Especially the nog part. 😉
And speaking of nog, have you had a chance to try Silk Nog yet? OMG you guys, it’s so so good! I can’t even believe it’s dairy-free – it tastes just like regular eggnog but with no eggs. I don’t even know how Silk manages to make such delicious products that my kids love, but I’m happy they do!
Silk Nog is full of nutmeg and cinnamon, and has the smooth velvety flavor of classic eggnog. You can raise a festive glass or two without feeling naughty because it’s made without eggs, dairy or saturated fat and there are only 80 calories or less per serving!
So hows about we take that delish Silk Nog and make one of my other favorite things in life – donuts! Baked Eggnog Donuts with Eggnog Glaze, if I’m being specific. 😉 I made this recipe three times before finally getting it perfect. They’re moist and cake-like and really scream out eggnog. If you like eggnog, these eggnog donuts are for you!
The glaze is what sets these donuts apart from others. It just perfectly balances out the donuts, which aren’t super sweet on their own. These eggnog donuts are dairy-free, too. Score!
Donuts are a new family tradition. I love being able to bake something fun and different for the holidays. I hope you’ll try them with your family!

- To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, Silk Nog and vanilla extract and whisk until combined. Add more or less powdered sugar or Nog to get the consistency you like.
