Then, fill the wells of your donut pan with the batter and bake them for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. You can let them rest for about 10 minutes on your counter before baking them to release any trapped air bubbles that could cause the donuts to rise too much and over bake.

Once the donuts have cooled, melt some coconut oil and mix together cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl. Coat each donut with the cinnamon-sugar mixture and set them on a wire rack to cool completely or serve them while still warm!

You can easily store these donuts in an airtight container for up to 2 months. However, they are best served fresh.

When making these donuts, be sure to use a flour that is naturally gluten-free. Sweet rice flour is a great choice and it works wonders in this recipe, providing the “stretch” of gluten that makes these donuts so soft. It also gives the donuts a unique flavor that is not typically found in gluten free baked goods.

To avoid a dry, crumbly donut, be sure to add a little extra milk to the batter during mixing. You can also add an extra tablespoon of chia or flax eggs to the batter to help bind it together.
