  • 1.5 cups gluten free flour
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil pre-heated
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  1. Pour the apple cider into a sauce pan and cook on medium heat for 15-20 minutes. The cider should reduce to 1/2 cup.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees once the cider has been cooking for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the gluten free flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg into a bowl and mix.
  4. When the cider is finished reducing, add the egg, agave nectar, and coconut oil and whisk together.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl and use a hand mixer to combine until smooth.
  6. Brush the donut pan with a little bit of coconut oil to prevent sticking and pour the batter into the pan, filling until 2/3 full.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes.
  8. While the donuts are baking, prepare the cinnamon sugar topping by mixing the cinnamon and brown sugar in a shallow bowl.
  9. When the donuts come out of the oven, lightly brush the tops of them with coconut oil and then dip them in the cinnamon sugar topping. I like to turn them in a half circle twice to make sure they're evenly coated.
  10. Place on cooling rack and serve warm or cool.
  11. Enjoy!!
