Gluten Free Vegan Gingerbread Donuts

free from: gluten and dairy (vegan and low sugar friendly)

These are PERFECT for Christmas morning. A fun twist on a classic holiday flavor. These gluten free vegan gingerbread donuts are so easy to make.

My husband has quoted these as the best donuts he’s ever had – and he can eat gluten and dairy!

For the donuts, you can use any 1:1 gluten free flour.

The recipe is gluten free, dairy free and vegan. These can be refined-sugar free by swapping the maple syrup with a different liquid sweetener, and skipping the glaze.

The following makes four Gluten Free Vegan Gingerbread Donuts:

  • 1/2 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown coconut sugar
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk , room temp
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 cup candied ginger bits
  • Toppings: glaze and extra powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350F, grease your donut pan and set aside.

Meanwhile, combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl until fully combined. Then add in wet ingredients one at a time, mixing in between. Once all ingredients are combined, fold in candied ginger. Then slowly pour into donut pan filling each mold to the top.

Bake for ten minutes. While you wait you can prepare your toppings. Once donuts are done, let cool for five minutes in the pan. Then take out and let cool on cooling rack for ten more minutes. Frost donuts once fully cooled.

These should be stored in a container, preferably in the fridge. Best eaten right away, though. Enjoy!
