Gluten Free Mini Donuts, Powdered and Chocolate (Dairy Free, Low FODMAP)

Inspired by my favorite Hostess donettes, these mini donuts are fun and super easy to make. Gluten, dairy and refined sugar free (but no one will know). Either roll them in powdered sugar or dip them in chocolate. They're true to an old fashioned cake donut!

WHY YOU SHOULD MAKE GLUTEN FREE CHOCOLATE AND POWDERED MINI CAKE DONUTS


I love to make these because they are a fun copycat to the mini packaged Hostess donettes I used to love as a kid. They are mini so they are easy to pop in your mouth in one bite! They are so easy to make, and option to either roll in a powdered sugar or sweetener or melted chocolate to make them that true cake donut! Or heck just do both. They are made without refined sugar, gluten or dairy and safe on a low FODMAP diet! The perfect coffee dunk.


CAN I MAKE GLUTEN FREE MINI DONUTS VEGAN?


These donuts are dairy free, using dairy free milk but do require eggs. I have not tried to replace the eggs but I think you could use applesauce in replacement or a flax egg. Keep in mind flax eggs may make the donuts a little denser.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND SWAPS


I used Bob's Red Mill 1:1 All Purpose Gluten Free Flour, I have not tried any other flour blends but I think King Arthur 1:1 Gluten Free would work just as well.

I like coconut sugar as my sweetener of choice but any granulated sugar will work in this recipe.


I prefer avocado oil as an unsaturated oil in my baking because it's a lot healthier than vegetable oils, but you can use any neutral oil in this recipe. If you use coconut oil, make sure it's melted and cooled first.


You can roll mini donuts in unrefined powdered sugar. To make this, place any granulated sweetener or sugar in a high speed blender for 30 seconds. You can use coconut sugar, monkfruit, or your favorite sugar of choice.





CAN I MAKE THESE MINI DONUTS FULL SIZE?


Yes! Just up the baking time to 18-20 minutes. You can also make these into muffins if you do not have a donut pan.
