Gluten-Free Cinnamon Sugar Baked Donuts (GF, DF)

These gluten-free donuts are delicious and super easy to make!



1 1/2 cups Gluten-Free Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Xanthum Gum
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1/3 cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce
1/3 cup Almond Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 large Eggs
1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted

1/2 cup Brown Sugar, packed
4 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter (coconut oil for dairy-free)
3 Tbsp. Apple Juice
2 cups Powdered Sugar


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Grease donut pans with butter or coconut oil.

Place sugar, apple sauce, almond milk, vanilla, eggs and coconut oil in the bowl of a mixer and blend together. 

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, xanthum gum, sea salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir together and then slowly add to the wet mixture. Blend all ingredients together until smooth.

Bake donuts for 18 minutes or until they are golden brown and spring back when you touch them.

Let donuts stand for 10 minutes and then remove from the pans. Let cool completely before glazing.

To make the glaze heat the brown sugar, butter (or coconut oil), and apple juice on medium heat until melted together. Add these melted ingredients to the powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Use this glaze immediately! If you let it stand for too long it will harden and you won’t be able to get it on the donuts. If this happens you can reheat the glaze over a water bath on the stove top.


For a dairy free version replace the unsalted butter with coconut oil in the glaze.

If the glaze hardens reheat it over a water bath on the stove top until it is spreadable.
