Gluten free AND dairy free lemon donuts are just the snack my kids will love when they get home from school. Drizzle icing on top, or eat these little gluten free donuts plain.
As promised, here is another recipe that will use up some of those lemons. Our tree is still overflowing with lemons and I am working on finding a lot of ways to use them up. My gluten free lemon tart recipe and my gluten free lemon bundt cake recipes are other great ways to use up those lemons :-).
These moist and delicious lemon mini donuts are so quick and easy to make with my Babycakes Mini Donut Maker. From start to finish we had little donuts in under 20 minutes.
I used applesauce to keep these gluten free doughnuts super moist, and to reduce the amount of sugar in this recipe. Almond meal helps add some protein so there isn’t a big sugar crash after eating one or two of these….(okay, maybe more like four or five. These are hard to resist!)
