Ingredients

Cinnamon Baked Doughnuts

  • 4 1/2 cups whole grain flour (I use a gluten-free blend--see notes for how much to use)
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs (or alternative--see notes above)
  • 1 cup granulated sweetener (See Recipe Notes)
  • 5 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 15/16 cup coconut milk (1 cup minus 1 Tbsp; or milk substitute)
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)

Topping

  • 3 Tbsp granulated sweetener (See Recipe notes)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

For soaking

  • Combine the flour, sweeteners, fats, and liquids together (excluding the eggs.  However, if you are using a powdered egg replacer, you can add the liquid that you would add to the recipe at this point in order to make the dough easier to handle).  Let dough rest for 12-24 hours.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Roll out dough to approximately 1/2" thickness.  Cut with doughnut cutter (this one is really nice). Or alternatively, shape into desired shapes.  Brush tops with melted coconut oil, milk, milk substitute, or water.  Sprinkle with topping.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
  • Try not to eat them all in one sitting! :-)
