Gluten-Free Doughnuts with Vanilla Coconut Cream

If you love doughnuts but the gluten in them doesn't love you, we've come to your rescue! Our cinnamon-and-not-sugar Gluten-Free Doughnuts with yummy vanilla coconut cream are baked, not fried. Plus, they're made with only a few, high-quality ingredients.



Serves 6 large or 12 small doughnuts

For the coconut cream:

  • 1 teaspoon Nomu Vanilla Essence
  • 400ml coconut milk

For the doughnuts:

  • 1 cup Health Connection Wholefoods Gluten-Free Flour Blend
  • 1/3 cup coconut or Huletts Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon Nomu Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Nomu Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large I Like Eggs Free-Range Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Nomu Vanilla Essence
  • 1/3 cup Crede Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup Okja Oat Milk
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • Nomu Sweetly Sugar Substitute
  • Fresh fruit, for garnish


For the coconut cream:

  1. Note: Make the cream the day before you make the doughnuts.
  2. Add the coconut milk and vanilla essence together and whisk until well-combined and slightly aerated.
  3. Cover with cling wrap and place in the freezer overnight.
  4. Remove from the freezer just before serving the doughnuts.

For the doughnuts:

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Grease one six-serving donut pan and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, coconut/brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Add in the egg, vanilla essence, oil, oat milk, and vinegar and stir until combined.
  4. Spoon the batter into the prepared doughnut pan, filling each doughnut well about two-thirds full. Note: The batter should not cover the centre of the donut well where the hole will go.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes and then remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  6. Immediately coat in the cinnamon and sugar substitute.
  7. Serve with the coconut cream and enjoy!
