Is it too early to think about Fall? Not when I can make spiced donuts that actually work with my dietary restrictions!
Ever since going gluten, dairy, and egg free due to newly discovered food sensitivities, I’ve had more energy, way less anxiety, and have been the healthiest I’ve probably ever been! That being said, I have been terribly missing the flavor and familiarity of traditional baked goods even though I know my body doesn’t react well to them.
I’m always excited when I come across a recipe for diet-compliant baked goods that doesn’t necessarily taste like it’s diet-compliant. I was inspired by “A Dash of Megnut” to create these Fall spiced donuts.
These baked donuts are super straightforward to make and the only special equipment needed is a donut pan! Everything gets mixed by hand in one bowl so there aren’t too many dirty dishes made – yay!
I’ve made up a little printable recipe card for you that will hopefully make your experience even easier!
Notes on making the donuts
Donut Pans – I am really enjoying my new Nordic Ware donut pans! They clean up like a breeze and bake evenly. Each pan makes 6 full sized donuts.
Gluten Free Flour Blend – I prefer using King Arthur Measure for Measure Flour, which contains xanthan gum. I have not tried this recipe with other gluten free flours, but feel it really needs the xanthan gum in there to hold the donut together.
Nut Free Alternative – I used almond milk for this recipe, but coconut milk would work just as well. Use the drinkable kind, not the thick, canned variety.
Be sure to pin this for your reference later – or share with someone who would enjoy it!
How soon do you start enjoying Fall treats? I mean, is there ever really a wrong time for a donut?
Please let me know if you try this recipe and what you think – I’d love to hear from you! Or if you ever want to share a gluten and dairy free recipe recommendation with me, I love trying new recipes and would welcome the suggestion!
