  • 1 cup gluten free flour blend * see note
  • ½ cup almond flour * see note
  • ¼ cup gluten free oats * see note
  • ½ cup lightly sweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup ground flaxmeal
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • dash salt
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • cup melted coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup raisins


  • In a large bowl, add dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • In a medium bowl, add all wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Plug in the Babycakes Donut Maker to heat.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well.
  • You will notice this dough is thicker than my other donut recipes. That is ok, it will add another minute or two to cooking...but these are still moist and delicious.
  • Spray coconut oil into donut sections of donut maker.
  • Add a spoon full of dough into each donut section in the donut maker.
  • Close the lid and cook for 4-5 minutes until done.
  • Move to cooling rack.

For A Donut Pan:

  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • Add the donut batter to a piping bag or sandwich baggie with the corner removed.
  • Pipe into a greased donut pan.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes (depending on the size of the donut pan.)


  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF, Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend, and Authentic Foods Multi Blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. I highly suggest using almond flour and not almond meal. Almond meal is more coarse and will make your donuts grainy.
  4. To make this recipe nut-free, omit the almond flour and substitute an additional ¼ cup gluten free flour blend.
  5. These donuts will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
