Certainly! Here’s a recipe for vegan, gluten-free apple cider donuts that are both delicious and allergy-friendly:
For the Donuts:
1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
1/2 cup almond flour
One teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil or vegetable oil
One teaspoon of vanilla extract
For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating:
1/4 cup granulated sugar
One teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Two tablespoons melted vegan butter (or coconut oil)
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a donut pan.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free all-purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and salt.
In a separate bowl, combine the applesauce, apple cider, maple syrup, melted coconut oil (or vegetable oil), and vanilla extract.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Spoon the batter into the prepared donut pan, filling each well about 2/3 full.
Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean.
While the donuts are baking, mix the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon in a shallow bowl to make the cinnamon sugar coating.
Allow the donuts to cool for a few minutes before removing them from the pan. While still warm, brush each donut with melted vegan butter (or coconut oil) and then dip it into the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat.
Place the coated donuts on a wire rack to cool completely.
Enjoy your delicious vegan, gluten-free apple cider donuts!
These donuts are a perfect treat for fall, and the apple cider adds a wonderful seasonal flavor. Adjust the sweetness and spices to your liking, and feel free to experiment with different gluten-free flour blends if needed.
