MAKING THE DOUGHNUTS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl whisk together 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and set aside. In a small saucepan on medium heat, stir in the 1/2 cup almond breeze, 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 1 egg and 4 tablespoons softened butter. Stirring constantly with a whisk until butter melts. Combine the wet mixture to the dry flour mix until smooth. With a large spoon, pour the doughnut batter into an ungreased doughnut pan. Bake for 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove baked doughnuts immediately from pan and place onto a cooling rack.

PINK GLAZE
• 2 tablespoons almond breeze
• 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
• 2 cups powdered sugar
• food coloring (red, blue)

how to make: In a medium size bowl scoop in 2 cups powdered sugar. Add in 2 tablespoons almond breeze and 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract. Mix well until smooth consistency (Add in additional powdered sugar for a thicker consistency). Separate the glaze into two even batches on an additional bowl. For the first pink glaze; one drop of red will do, mix well. In the second bowl use 5 drops red and 2 blue to achieve a darker hue of pink. Dunk in each doughnut and set back onto cooling rack (keeping a towel underneath the rack will ensure less cleaning time as the glaze drips until hardens) Garnish doughnuts with coconut flakes.

    I love making baked donuts! I don’t have the proper equipment to make traditional donuts and being gluten free if I want a donut, I need to make it. I love the colour of the icing with the coconut shavings!!!

    lavivavera says:

    Taylor says:

    I actually eat so many doughnuts that I’m in need of recipes to help me cook my own. I definitely need a healthier option than the doughnuts you buy, so this is perfect timing!

    Jamie Danno says:

    So cute, pretty and looks super yummy!!

    You could make these even healthier by replacing the all purpose flour with a coconut flour/almond flour blend, the sugar with natural honey or coconut crystals, and coconut oil instead of butter. Also, instead of white vinegar, use apple cider vinegar (AMAZING health benefits).

    My husband and i felt now lucky that Raymond could round up his research out of the ideas he came across using your web site. It’s not at all simplistic just to choose to be giving freely strategies people today may have been making money from. And we also figure out we’ve got you to be grateful to for that. All of the explanations you made, the easy web site menu, the relationships you help instill – it’s most sensational, and it’s really letting our son in addition to us believe that that situation is pleasurable, and that’s extremely important. Thanks for everything!
