Don't feel like you have to miss out at the donut shop when you can make these tasty breakfast treats at home! Gluten free and dairy free!

  • Ingredients:
    1 1/4 cup warm water
    1 pkg active dry yeast (or 1 Tbsp)
    1/4 cup honey
    3 cups gluten free flour *see note below*
    1 tsp sea salt
    2 Tbsp almond or coconut milk
    2 cups powdered sugar
    Coconut oil (or other oil) for frying
  • Instructions:
    In a mixing bowl, combine warm water, yeast and honey. Let mixture rest so the yeast will activate. It will start to get a little foamy. It's important for the water to be warm so that the yeast activates. This should take about 5-10 minutes.

    Add in flour and salt to yeast mixture. Using the dough hook, mix the dough over low-medium speed for about 5 minutes, scrapping sides down if necessary. During this time, the dough will become a solid ball and should be slightly stretchy and not sticky.

    Place the dough on a floured surface or on a piece of wax paper. Roll dough out until about 1/4-1/2" thick. Using a donut cutter, cut out donuts and holes. Separate donut holes from rings. Place on a greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.

    Place a light cloth over the dough and let rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes. I usually set my oven on warm and place dough on top. You can also place these on the counter or table in sunlight. The warmth will help them rise.

    In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk and whisk until smooth. Add a little more sugar or milk to get desired consistency. Remember, you want this to be a glaze, not cupcake frosting.

    Place about 2 cups of oil in a large sauce pan or pot. You could even use a high sided skillet if desired. Heat oil over medium heat. When oil is hot, place donuts and donut holes, a few at a time. Cook on each side for a couple of minutes. The dough will get slightly brown.

    Remove from oil and place on a paper towel or wire rack. While donuts are still warm, dip in glaze. Return to rack to let glaze hard .Repeat glazing if desired.
