‘Tis the season for Apple Cider Donuts! For many it’s a fall right of passage to go apple picking, and what is apple picking without those amazing apple cider donuts? Well, obviously most farms are not frying up gluten-free versions, so we knew this is just the time to whip up a batch of these gluten free Apple Cider Donut Holes! They are SO EASY to make, simply whisk together in one bowl, and then bake up in the oven. You can make them in a mini donut hole pan like we did, or in a regular donut pan. Once they’ve come out of the oven they get a quick dip in butter or coconut oil and a mixture of coconut sugar and cinnamon. They’re free from refined sugars, dairy-free and SO GOOD.

Can These be Made into Regular Baked Donuts?

Yes! This recipe makes 20 donut holes or it can be baked in a regular donut pan to make 6 donuts. 

Don’t Have a Donut Pan?

Make these in a mini muffin pan and turn them into apple cider mini muffins. Line the muffin tin with parchment or silicone liners, and once cooked you can coat the top in the butter and sugar mixture.
