Author Audrey from Mama Knows Gluten Free



  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour I like Pillsbury gluten-free
  • 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum leave out if your flour already has it
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 cup applesauce


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon  pure vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons  pure maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray full sized donut pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl combine the sugar, eggs, applesauce, vegetable oil and pure vanilla extract. Mix until fully combined.
  • Add gluten-free flour, xanthan gum (leave out if your flour already has it), cinnamon, salt and baking powder and mix until fully combined.
  • The batter will be thick and sticky.
  • Add batter to a large plastic storage bag (or piping bag). I like to take a tall cup and put the bag inside of the cup so it's easier to fill the bag with the batter. Close the seal of the bag.
  • Cut the tip off of the bag.
  • Squeeze the bag carefully filling the donut pan.
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes. They will be golden brown and set.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the ingredients for the glaze.
  • Dip each warm donut into the glaze and place on a plate or wire rack.
  • Serve warm.
  • Enjoy!
