Gluten Free Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

I love donuts and these donuts are amazing as not only is it baked, but it’s gluten free too!

I used to drool over the donut display whenever I passed by Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme. Although I have a sweet-tooth, I do try and control eating sweet stuff as much as possible.

So, nothing beats like making your own donuts as you can control the sugar and bake them instead of frying them 😉.

Recipe from Gluten Free Palate and though I have reduced the sugar, it still tastes good!

For the donuts:

For the coating:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • For the donuts: Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease one six-serving donut pan; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk the egg, vanilla, vegetable oil, dairy-free milk and vinegar.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared donut pan – filling each donut well about 2/3 full. The batter should not cover the center of the donut well where the hole will go.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes or until the donuts rise and set.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Place a wire rack over a cookie sheet or piece of parchment paper.
  • Carefully remove the donut from the pan. You may need to use a spoon or a rubber spatula to loosen them if they stick.
  • For the coating: In a separate small mixing bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. One at a time, dip the tops of your donuts into the coating, then flip them to coat the bottoms.
  • Place your cinnamon sugar donut on the rack and repeat until all donuts have been coated.
  • Store donuts in an airtight container at room temperate for up to three days.
