I’ve been craving donuts (or doughnuts) for a while now… so I’ve been looking to make a gluten free and dairy free donut that has the same texture as a regular donut, but baked so it’s a healthier version. So I’ve tweaked a basic donut recipe and present you with these Easy Baked Gluten Free Maple Donuts!

Easy Baked Gluten Free Maple Donuts


1/3 cup coconut flour

1/3 cup almond flour

1/3 cup sorghum flour

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs

1/2 coconut palm sugar

1/4 grape seed oil

1/2 cup almond milk

4 tablespoons maple extract


1/2 cup coconut palm sugar or icing sugar

1 tablespoon almond milk

1 teaspoon maple extract

Easy Baked Gluten Free Donuts


Combine flours, salt and baking soda in a bowl. In a large bowl, beat eggs with sugar. Add oil, milk and maple extract. Add flour mix and stir until smooth.

Grease a 6-donut pan like this non-stick donut pan; spoon mix into pan.

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.

Let cool for 5 minutes, then remove donuts from pan and cool completely.

For glaze, mix sugar with maple extract and almond milk. Spoon over donuts. Makes 6 donuts.

Enjoy and try not to eat just one!

  1. DEFINITELY pinning! As a fellow GF-er, I have tried a couple gf donut recipes from Babycakes but they didn’t really hit the spot and the texture was a little too …thick? These look delish. Can’t wait to try!

  2. These look so hearty and yummy! I’ve been a GF/DF donut kick lately too and just added two new ones to my blog too 😀 Tis’ the season for donuts.

    I love doughnuts but have never made them at home. The frying part is a little intimidating.This baked version would be a great recipe to make for my friends who have food sensitives as well.
