I'm just going to keep these Autumn Recipes coming, this time with cozy warm baked Apple and Cinnamon Donuts! These Donuts are Gluten Free, Vegan and Refined Sugar Free.
  • Donuts:
  • 260g (1 cup) homemade applesauce
  • 10 pitted dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 50g (1/4 cup) tahini or nut butter of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 80g (1 cup) ground almonds or almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons of gluten free oats
  • Crumb topping:
  • 2 Tbsp Ground almonds
  • 2 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
  1. Preheat oven to 180oc and spray a donut tray with coconut oil
  2. In a food processor, blend together the applesauce, dates, vanilla extract and tahini until the dates are almost completely broken up and well blended
  3. Add in the baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground almonds, coconut flour and oats and blend again until the batter is thick
  4. Add the batter to the donut tray and evenly spread with a spoon
  5. Mix together the crumb topping then sprinkle on top
  6. Bake in oven for 30 minutes then cover with foil and bake for another 8-10 minutes
  7. Allow the donuts to cool for about 10 minutes then gently remove so they don't fall apart. I drizzled mine in a little extra tahini
  8. I found they then firmed up once placed in the fridge for around 30 minutes. I then stored in the fridge.
