Donut Batter:

  • 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour mix
  • 2 tsp baking powder (gluten-free)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup grape seed oil
  • 1/2 cup So Delicious Almond milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  1. preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. Combine almond milk with 1/2 tbsp vinegar and let curdle.
  3. combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  4. in a second mixing bowl combine honey, sugar, oil, apple sauce, vanilla and the remaining 1/2 tbsp vinegar. Mix till well combined.
  5. Add the milk and vinegar mixture to the other liquids and stir lightly.
  6. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined and smooth.
  7. Transfer batter to a piping bag or large freezer bag and cut off one corner. Pipe batter into greased mini or regular donut pans, or into a muffin top pan.
  8. Bake mini donuts for 8 minutes and the regular size donuts for 12-15 minutes.
  9. Once donuts are baked you can toss in icing sugar, cinnamon sugar, or glaze with chocolate. You can also cut in half and fill them with a number of fillings (lemon curd, jam, coconut whip cream and strawberries). The sky is the limit when it comes to decorating donuts!

*if you want to make jam filled donuts, you can put a little batter into the muffin top pan, place 1 tbsp of jam in the center and then cover the jam with more batter before baking.

*you can also slice baked donuts in half and add lemon curd, jam or whipped coconut cream.

Hope you enjoy the recipe and all the possibilities!
