Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose gluten free flour (I use “Better Batter”)
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour (or sorghum flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (omit if your gluten free flour already contains xanthan gum)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée 
  • 3/4 cup dairy free milk (I use “So Delicious unsweetened Coconut Milk”)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (coconut oil works as well)
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Maple Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar or substitute (I use “Swerve” brand powdered sweetener)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 34 tbsp dairy free milk 
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Sprinkle of nutmeg 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and grease donut pans.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all purpose flour, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, xanthan gum, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  4. Use a piping bag to add the mixture to the greased donut pans.
  5. Bake the donuts for 12-15 minutes.
  6. After a few minutes, transfer to donuts to a cooling rack with a piece of parchment paper underneath.
  7. Once the donuts have cooled, combine all of the maple topping ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine.
  8. Dip each donut into the maple glaze and place back on the cooling rack to allow the excess topping to drip off of the donuts.
  9. Enjoy right away (they will be messy!) or place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes until the glaze has set.
