Gluten Free Maple Pumpkin Mini Donuts

Okay, this recipe is going to be really similar to the whole wheat recipe, but made with my homemade gluten free flour. I’ve searched for quite awhile looking for a good homemade mix, because let’s face it, the store bought gluten free flours are REALLY expensive. I used the recipe from Allergy Awesomeness. Link is here . I was able to find all the ingredients I needed at Winco, and they were really inexpensive. Hopefully you have a bulk section in your local grocery store. If not, all these ingredients are available online. I used a mix of white and brown rice flours, I read this would give the best results on another website. When I bought ingredients for the mix, I also bought xanthan gum. A lot of the recipes I have found use it, I wanted to have it on hand just in case. The flour mix doesn’t use it, but I wanted to keep it on hand.

So, measure all ingredients and put in large bowl. Mix well. With the potato starch and tapioca starch, it takes a little while.

Heres the recipe: 1 cup gluten free flour mix 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves 1 egg, beaten 1/4 cup maple syrup 1 1/2 tablespoon canola oil or fat of choice 1/3 cup pumpkin puree 1/4 cup milk of choice, I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk (low cal) 1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry and wet ingredients separately. Mix together and combine, don’t overmix. Spray mini donut pans.

Pipe batter into pans. If you need to scrape batter out of the bowl into a piping bag like I do, it’s a task you need 3 hands for. Do like I did and get the piping bag into a cup. It will hold it upright while you pour batter in.

Bake until slightly underbaked, remember it’s whole wheat, so it will dry out quickly. Remove from pans as soon as you are able. Cool on rack.

I finished the donuts 2 different ways. One was a maple glaze and the other a chocolate ganache. Which was my favorite? I couldn’t decide. I loved them both.

Here’s the glaze- 3/4 cup powdered sugar 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup 1/2 teaspoon vanilla milk to consistency you are looking for.
