gluten free vegan banana maple donuts


Sometimes I have myself a little pity party when I think about how unfair it is that I can't just go to the donut shop and get a hot, fresh donut. I'm missing out on that frosted, greasy, fried dough. Melt-in-your-mouth goodness. I know donuts are not the healthiest breakfast choice and go straight to my thighs...but they sure do taste good!

After I get over my donut woes, I just get in my kitchen and make a batch of BAKED gluten free donuts! I've come to love these 10 times more than traditional donuts. This recipe is also egg and dairy free, which makes my tummy happy. A soft, gluten free banana donut, topped with a maple glaze. Doesn't get much better than that when it comes to morning breakfast treats.

Hot, fresh, banana donuts...comin' right up!

Bake donuts for 10-12 minutes, just barely golden brown. Turn out onto cooling rack.

  2. Just shared on All Gluten-Free Desserts, Sarah. These look so delicious and work for so many folks with gluten-free and "more-free" diets. :-)

  3. Would this recipe work for a donut maker?

  4. We made these donuts in our donut maker and they were great! My girls loved them. You may not be able to rely on the donut maker "ready" indicator light to determine doneness. Just keep them in until they are golden brown. Kuddos to Sarah for all of these wonderful recipes!

  5. These are delicious! They have a great texture and aren't gummy (like some gf baked goods). My favorite way to enjoy them is with earth balance and jam.
