COFFEE and Gluten Free Apple Spiced Donuts
Woohoo, it's Thursday people and I'm posting twice this week! I mean dang, I'm getting stuff done! And by stuff, I don't mean laundry, um, let's not talk about it. By stuff I mean, blogging a little (I have priorities, people I miss you guys), teaching classes, training clients, shuffling kids to and from school and drinking cups of coffee the size of my head!

Yeah, don't we all drink our iced mochas from quart sized mason jars? Well, those of us that get up at 4:30am during the week do...and then we are WIRED for about 3 hours, but dang those 3 hours feel great! Hello legal addictive stimulant!

So, I promised a recipe for those apple spiced baked donuts or doughnuts (By the way, how do you spell this? I lean towards the first one, but I also use the second. Probably not important...I've just had too much coffee!) Anyway, so these are light and caky with a nice hint of spice to celebrate the cooler weather. I've always been more of a fan of cake donuts personally and Old Fashion Doughnuts always have that hint of nutmeg. So good. So here's my dairy and gluten free version of a spiced donut...

Apple Spiced Baked Donuts
(makes 6 donuts and a small loaf - I only have 1 donut pan)

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup tagatose (NuNaturals) or 1/4 cup sugar
1 dropper vanilla stevia (NuNaturals) or 2 TBSP sugar plus 1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 eggs (flax or chia gel works too)

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup almond milk

1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour (Bob's Red Mill)
3/4 cup Sweet Rice Flour (Bob's Red Mill)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp fresh nutmeg
pinch of cardamom
pinch of salt

Spray a donut pan and/or small loaf pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar through coconut oil together until light and fluffy. Then add the eggs, applesauce, almond milk and apple cider vinegar to the sugar mixture and beat until blended well. In a separate bowl, combine the gluten free all purpose flour through salt together. Next add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until fully combined. Scoop batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake the donuts for 15-20 minutes and the mini loaf will take from 30-40 minutes depending on how much batter you put in it. Stick them with a toothpick and it should come out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Then remove from pans to cool completely...

To glaze or not to glaze...that is the question?! We are a mixed family here. The guys like glaze because, you know, more sugar. I like baked donuts without glaze for dipping in my coffee.

1 cup powder sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
enough water or almond milk to form a thick glaze (add a tablespoon at a time)

Mix everything together until thick and smooth. Glaze slightly cooled donuts.

I will be sharing these on next week's Slightly Indulgent Tuesday and Allergy Free Wednesday.

So, how is everyone's week going? It's crazy here, but that's not different from any other week. Who has fun plans for the weekend?

    Lindsay - Yeah, I have to have a lot of almond milk in my iced coffee and it has to be sweet. I seem to be in a groove with it these days. I don't always crave it, but for some reason lately, I have been. I think I may try some aminos for the afternoon slump today though...

    Have I mentioned that I haven't had a donut in 20 years? I might actually eat those though! And laundry? At least you know it's not going anywhere ;-)

    Cheers to legal addictive stimulants! I'm on the juice myself these days. Speaking of... it would be even better if I had a doughnut to dip in it. ;)

    Donut or doughnut?

    Oh man, iced it. Gotta have it. I think I gotta have these donuts, too! (Is doughnuts how they spell it in Canada? I have no idea, lol)

    Homemade donuts are the jam - so delicious!!
    And I guess I spell it donut since that's what I just wrote out - lol.

    What sort of chia gel/flaxseed substitution amount do you use for eggs? I'm so intrigued by these donuts. I've been jonesing for donuts something fierce! I'll have to figure out a sub for the all purpose gf flour because I'm also potato-intolerant, but I'm working on reliable and viable subs for potato starch/flours. So tricky!

    I don't think many things sound more delicious than apple-spiced doughnuts! Now I'm even happier that I FINALLY bought a doughnut pan!

    Oh this looks awesome! I love all things apple and donuts. Do you think it would work with coconut milk or rice milk? Thanks!

  • At November 2, 2013 at 9:24 AM, Blogger Sarena Shasteen - The Non-Dairy Queen said…

    Yes Luke. I think it would work well with both. Hope you enjoy them!

    Hello Sarena,

    These donuts look phenomenal!! I STILL have yet to make my own. What's the deal there?!?! Okay, I am going to go downtown this WEEK and get myself a donut pan. And that's that. My family would FLIP for these - especially for breakfast.

    Thank you for a great recipe!!

    Hugs to you lovely lady.

    I gotta try those! They look delish! :D And I love drinking all types of beverages out of mason jars - big ones, too! - isn't it just more fun? :D

    Oh I would totally take coffee and doughnuts just about now. Sounds perfect! And I can't wait to share these with my GF friends. Thank you for sharing them with us!

    The last time I have a donut, OHHH MY! Your donuts are making me want one though! Sad day in the neighbor hood because I cannot. What's tagatose like? I have some, but I just dont know what to use it in (cause I don't bake much).

  • At November 27, 2013 at 1:12 AM, Blogger Stephanie said…

    OMG these look so good!!

    Made these for my daughter (who can't have milk or soy) and me (who can't have wheat or corn) and they were wonderful! We increased the cardamom and used Namaste Flour and it was awesome! One thing, eggs (or substitute) was mentioned in ingredients list, but not in the instructions. I added them to the wet ingredients, but thought you should know. Thanks again! Finally an affordable homemade yummy donut we can have!!

    Yay, I'm so glad you two loved them Cathy! I corrected the recipe instructions. Thank you for letting me know!
