  • 1 cup gluten free flour blend *see note
  • ½ cup almond flour *see note
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • cup almond milk *see note
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted


  • Preheat the Babycakes mini donut maker.
  • In a large bowl, add all dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • In a small bowl, add all wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix.
  • Spoon batter into each little donut hole section of the donut maker.
  • Do not over fill. I fill until it is just slightly full.
  • Close the lid and allow to cook for 3 minutes.
  • Open the lid and see if they are done.
  • (If not, cook an additional minute.)
  • Cool on a cooling rack, then top and eat.


  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 in this recipe. 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. If you are nut-free, you can omit the almond flour and add ⅓ cup extra gluten free flour blend.
  4. Other non-dairy kinds of milk will work but I do not recommend canned coconut milk.
  5. If you do not have a donut maker, you can make this in a donut pan. Preheat the oven to 350º F. Spray coconut oil or another light oil on the donut pan. Use a batter filled piping bag (or a plastic bag with the corner cut out) to pipe the donut batter into each donut section. Bake for 15 minutes, or until done.
  6. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of a donut. If the toothpick comes out clean, it is done baking. If you see batter or crumbs, the donuts need to bake longer
