Donut Mix
  1. 3/4 cup rice flour (We use Bob's Red Mill)
  2. 3/4 cup all-purpose GF flour
  3. 1/2 cup coconut milk
  4. 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  5. 1/4 cup organic brown sugar
  6. 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  7. 1 tsp cinnamon
  8. 1 tsp organic Apple Cider Vinegar
  9. 1 flax egg (1 TBSP to 3TBSP warm water)
  10. 1/2 cup vegan butter melted (divided)
Donut Topping
  1. 1 cup organic powdered sugar
  1. Prepare flax egg, set aside. Preheat oven to 350 and spray your donut pan. Mix all ingredients together, being sure to include only 1/4 cup melted butter. (Reserve the other 1/4 cup for coating and dipping the donuts later). When batter becomes a thick consistency, divide into donut pan, using a spoon to smooth batter evenly around each mold. Bake for 13-15 min, until firm and set. Allow to cool in pan for 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Once cooled, place 1/4 cup melted vegan butter in bowl and your powdered sugar in a ziploc baggie. Dip donuts, one at a time in the butter and then the powdered sugar, shaking around the bag contents until donut is fully dusted with sugar. Transfer to serving dish. Best enjoyed same day!
