Vegan and Gluten Free Cinnamon Brown Sugar Donuts


I would like to first thank Bob's Red Mill for making these delicious donuts before your eyes possible. Their products are awesome in taste and quality, and that is why I am truly a fan!

I never would have thought that I could make absolutely the best cake donuts both gluten free and vegan before this.

I mean, let's be honest - there is not a lot of vegan and gluten free online. 

You search online and you find gluten free donuts - with eggs.

You find vegan donuts - with wheat.

But where are all of the vegan and gluten free donuts? Or as I typically spell them, "doughnuts"?


Well, you do not have to look any further. Here are some of the best donuts you will find ever. Especially when they are warm and come freshly out of the oven!

These cinnamon sugar donuts make the house smell absolutely amazing too... warm tea or carob cocoa with these anyone?

Just look at these... perfection!

Here is what you will need to do in order to make these insanely delicious donuts.

Ingredients for cake donut:

3/4 cup and 1 tbsp BRM brown rice flour
1/2 cup and 1 tbsp BRM potato starch
3 tbsp BRM tapioca starch
1/4 cup sorghum flour
1 cup and 1 tbsp cane sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp BRM guar gum
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup oil
5 1/2 tbsp apple puree, or sauce
3 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp warm dairy-free milk + 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Topping:

1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Yields 12 donuts

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. 

Meanwhile, prepare your batter, by mixing all ingredients for cake donut in a large mixing bowl. 

Start by mixing your flours, then adding in your liquids.

Mix well, but do not over mix.

Once the batter is made (it should not be too thick or thin), prepare a donut pan by spraying canola oil into each donut section of the pan, and add 2 1/2 tbsp of donut batter into each section carefully.

Place donuts in the oven to bake for no more than 15-18 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and allow them to cool, in the donut pan for at least 5 minutes, while you prepare the cinnamon brown sugar topping.

The cinnamon brown sugar topping can be made simply by mixing together in a glass bowl the required ingredients thoroughly.

Finally, after 5 minutes of the donuts standing, remove them carefully from the donut pan, and immediately start placing each in the glass bowl with the cinnamon brown sugar, and using your hands to place the cinnamon brown sugar mix on.

Once you are done, you can store these in the refrigerator for a few days, or freeze them.

Enjoy. And if you like them, why not share? 


I know...thank me later :)

I can't wait to try this recipe. I tried your Mexican Homefries and put my own twist to them and loved them. I love to bake and haven't experimented much since going gluten free. I use Bob's Red Mill and my stuff is good, but I can't wait to try something new.

These look awesome! I LOVE BRM! I just baked gluten free vegan cinnamon rolls (their recipes, subbed out the egg) last night and they are great! I think doughnuts are an excellent next recipe! :) I'm so happy I found your site and I'm looking forward to recipe updates in the FB newsfeed :)
