Gluten free Vegan Apple Cinnamon Donuts with a Maple Glaze

Gluten free Vegan Apple Cinnamon Donuts with Maple Glaze

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

Tis the season for apples, pumpkins, and everything fall! I have been craving donuts for so long but never got around to actually making them.  I bought the donut pans a long time ago and have never used them (I have no idea why) But that all changed yesterday.  I got so excited about this recipe because it has been so long since I have had a donut for one, but for two this was a donut that wasn't going to destroy my tummy, thank goodness.  This donut is full of flavor and very cake like and moist.  Nothing worse than a dry donut to try and choke down.  I brought some donuts to my neighbors who loved them and the kids loved them so much they almost ate them all except one which I saved for my husbands lunch, however the donut didn't make it to the lunch bag, but his tummy instead.  I will be making these donuts again and again in a variety of different flavors.

  1. These look absolutely AMAZING! My husband hasn't been able to have apple donuts since he got celiac; he will really appreciate this!

  2. Thank you so very much Suzanne!! These taste fantastic!! My family LOVED them!

  3. I just ate 2 of these, barely letting the glaze set. They are delicious. Even though my milk didn't curdle and I added the applesauce at the end, they are yummy. I made 16 donuts because my batter was liquid. I just hope that I don't eat the rest of them today.
