Growing up, we had doughnuts only for special occasions until I got my first job at a local doughnut shop. I had access to unlimited doughnuts. There’s nothing like a hot glaze doughnut straight off the fryer! When I was diagnosed with food allergies I thought I would never eat doughnuts again. I made my gluten-free doughnut recipe so I could enjoy doughnuts with my family again, and I hope you will too. If you’re struggling to find the best gluten-free doughnuts, keep reading. I’ve got you covered!

This gluten-free doughnut recipe uses cinnamon-sugar coating. Consider trying these other coatings and toppings.
I also recommend these gluten-free flour blends if you don’t want to make your own. When I first started baking gluten-free I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour (paid Amazon link). I also tried King Arthur Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour. I recommend using either one of these. Just remember to check the ingredients for xanthan gum. If the blend you choose doesn’t have it, then you will need to add it separately in the recipe.
Yes. Just substitute your favorite dairy-free milk and dairy-free butter in the recipe. I use oat milk and Earth Balance butter for this recipe.
I do recommend using a doughnut pan. I like the Wilton Doughnut Pan (paid Amazon link). If you don’t have one, use a muffin pan. Just note using a muffin pan will increase your cooking time. Add 2 minutes to the cooking time and increase from there as needed.
Yes. Cool your doughnuts completely then place them in a sealed plastic storage bag or an airtight container with a lid. Store doughnuts in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
I sincerely hope you enjoy this gluten-free doughnut recipe as much as my family does. It is so great to be able to eat doughnuts again with family and friends as we make special memories together.
