Gluten Free Donut Recipe

Inspired by the Jewish festival of Chanukah this week, when traditionally oily foods are eaten, I thought I’d take a healthy oil (coconut) and transform it into a healthy donut recipe. These donuts are baked, not fried, and contain no dairy, gluten, or refined sugars. If you’d like to try making them at home, please see below for the recipe.

Chanukah is a holiday of miracles – and while you and I may not be aware of them, miracles are happening all around on a daily basis.

Wishing you a weekend filled with miracles that you can see 🙂

Recipe type: Dessert
: 10-12 donuts
Ingredients
  • 2 cups blanched almond meal/flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 TBS coconut oil, melted
  • 3 TBS maple syrup or honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 165 degrees C fan forced and grease donut pans with coconut oil
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl
  3. Divide batter evenly between the 12 moulds and give the pan a bit of a shake to help the batter settle
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes, keeping an eye on the donuts and take them out when the edges start to brown
  5. Allow donuts to cool before removing them from the pan

And here’s a little extra…(the best part)…my donut icings:

Chocolate icing:

Ingredients – 1 cup of pitted dates

¼ cup cocoa powder

¼ cup coconut oil

½ cup water

 

Vanilla icing:

1 cup cashews (raw or roasted) soaked in boiling water for 1 hour

2 TBS coconut oil, melted

2 TBS maple syrup

½ tsp vanilla extract

¼ cup water

 

Cherry Vanilla icing:

1 cup cashews (raw or roasted) soaked in boiling water for 1 hour

2 TBS coconut oil, melted

2 TBS maple syrup

½ tsp vanilla extract

¼ cup water

1 TBS glace cherries

 

For all icings: blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until completely smooth

Add whatever toppings your heart desires to the icing – raw chocolate (keep in the fridge before chopping), shredded coconut and chopped nuts are 3 of my personal favourites!
