Doughnuts with Dad – Gluten Free Recipe

Happy Fathers Day!  In the past, this day guaranteed doughnuts. I love doughnuts. Sadly, gluten free vegan doughnuts are hard to come by.  I’ve found gluten free doughnuts.  I’ve found vegan doughnuts.  But for gluten free vegan ones, I’d have to trek pretty far to find them. Thankfully, I found a recipe for vegan doughnuts that I was able to modify to make gluten free.  You can find the original recipe here10311023_10202944498826730_4090214760900660629_nIngredients for 6 doughnuts

  • I cup Pamela’s gluten free flour
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp egg replacer powder
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp and 1/8 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

For the topping:

  • 3/4 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Mini Chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep the doughnut pan (lightly spray with oil and dust with flour).
  2. In one bowl, combine flour, egg replacer, baking powered, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients.  Add the vinegar last.  As soon as vinegar is added, pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.IMG_3349 IMG_3350

  7. Once the doughnuts have cooled and are firm enough, dip doughnuts into the chocolate.

My chief of quality control was nearby.  She gave her approval.

Oops... the chocolate may have still been a little hot.  But she still gave the doughnut a thumbs up!
