Donuts have to be a love language, am I right? With Easter coming up this weekend, I wanted to have yummy treats that are also gluten free so that my stomach will be at ease. If you’re looking for a new variation of a “donut” treat, then check out this recipe! Fair warning, this is not your traditional doughy donut! It will taste like oatmeal, but I promise it is so delicious. Feel free to give it a try!
- 6 tbsp milk
- 1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extra
- 3/8 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 5 tbsp oil
- White chocolate melts
- Coconut oil
- Food coloring
- Matcha powder (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- Add the milk and apple cider vinegar together into a bowl. Let it sit on the side for 5-10 minutes. I used oat milk, but you can use your milk preference. The mixture will curdle a little bit.
- Mix in the maple syrup, vanilla extract, and oil.
- Grind the old fashioned oats until it is fine. I used our NutriBullet to grind the oats by pulsating the grinder. This will be your flour base.
- Add in the salt and baking powder and grind with the oats a little more.
- Slowly add in the dry mixture to the wet mixture. It will be a little runny and that is okay! It’s because it’s oats and not actual flour.
- Pour the mixture into the donut molds evenly. I used this silicon mold from Target, and filled it 2/3 full.
- Bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes, until a skewer pokes through clearly.
- Let it rest for 10 minutes before removing from the mold.
- For your icing: melt the white chocolate melts with a little bit of coconut oil in a bowl. Add food coloring (optional). I melted a lot of the chocolate melts so that I can divide it and add food coloring to create different icing colors. Using dark chocolate melts are fine too; they taste really good when mixed with matcha powder! For the green icing, I mixed about 2 tsp of matcha powder to give it extra flavor as well.
- Top the donuts with the icing. Make sure your donuts are cool before adding the icing.
- Refrigerate the donuts for 5-10 minutes so that the icing sets.
And that’s it! Hope you enjoy 🙂
