Grain Free Blueberry Donuts with Coconut Glaze

When is the last time you had a grain free donut?

It has been too long for me. Today while shopping I found a big box of blueberries at the grocery store.  I wanted to create something with them quickly, before my son got home from school and devoured the whole box. This gluten free blueberry donut recipe is easy to make, and it is popular with my whole family.

My son is a blueberry fanatic.

Fresh, frozen, dried, it just doesn’t matter. He will eat blueberries until his mouth is stained dark blue. I buy frozen organic blueberries in bulk at Costco every month, and he eats them all. If I want to bake with blueberries, I have to do it when he is not home, otherwise it will be too late 🙂 .

This gluten free dairy free donut recipe is loosely based on the paleo donut recipe that Fenny at Green Bites Cafe had shared with me a few months ago. I added a simple glaze on top to give these donuts a little more sweetness.  A light dusting of coconut plays well with the blueberry flavor, making these donuts a favorite with my son.

Have you used this mini donut maker by Babycakes?

It is available on Amazon. This is by far the best donut maker I have tried, and it has taken a beating.

Cooked and ready to cool.

*Consider using small blueberries if you are making mini donuts in the Babycakes donut cooker. Larger berries tend to take up a lot of the little donut cooking space, making it harder for the dough to get all the way around the berries.

  1. I love my Baby Cakes. I don’t think I’ve ever tried a grain free donut. Looks so good! 🙂

    • Thanks for commenting Maggie :-). I would love to hear what flavors of donuts you like to make in your Babycakes donut maker. My kids love pretty much any donut flavors.

  2. Beautiful and yummy! Mr. GFE flips over blueberries, just like your son, Sandi. Need to make these for him. 😉

    • Thank you Shirley :-). It is peak blueberry season here in the Bay Area so my son has been in heaven with all of the blueberries. I finally broke down and planted a blueberry bush in our backyard as well. We have an ongoing battle with squirrels in our fruit trees, so we will have to see if we get any blueberries.

  3. My boys would go nuts for these donuts!!

  4. Oh boy! These look amazing and I love the look of that doughnut maker! How cool is that? It has reminded me that I bought a doughnut baking tray and haven’t used it yet! Today may be the day it gets its first outing! Thanks for sharing the recipe 🙂

    • Hi Vicki, you are going to love your donut baking tray! My kids love coming up with new ideas. I have four gluten free dairy free donut recipes up on my site. I hope you have a great time experimenting.

  5. I’ve been experimenting with coconut flour and love it! These donuts look amazing. I have a donut maker too so these are definitely going on my to make list!

    • I hope you enjoy these Amanda. I love coconut flour and really need to start using it more often. It is a lot healthier than the starchy gluten free flours. Have a great evening.

  6. The blueberry donut recipe looks great. If you don’t have a donut maker, can they be made in the oven with a donut pan?
