Eatcleaner's Gluten-Free Applesauce and Cinnamon Baked Doughnuts

The original post is found along with all other mouth-watering goodness at the Eatcleaner website.

Ingredients:

2 Cups Wholesome Chow Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Mix (Or your favorite gluten-free all purpose flour plus 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt)

1 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 Cup Wholesome Zero Calorie Sweetener (Or Stevia or Monkfruit Extract or your Favorite Combo)

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Ground Flax Meal

2 Whole Eggs

1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

1/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond or Coconut (or Rice/Soy if you have nut allergies) Milk

3/4 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce

Optional: 1/4 Cup Dark Chocolate, melted (70% or more cacao). These add a little gooeyness and of course, everything is better with chocolate.

Directions:

1) Heat up Babycakes donut maker and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Or, pre-heat oven to 350F and coat donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2) In a large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients.

3) In a separate bowl, whisk or beat together all wet ingredients until frothy. Add to dry ingredients in large bowl and mix well until cohesive batter is produced.

4) Pour into donut maker or pan hole and be careful not to overfill. Cook until light brown and done through. With the Babycakes maker, about 3-4 minutes on each side. In the oven, about 15-20 minutes.

To finish them off, you have options. Mix 1 teaspoon cinnamon with 1/4 cup granulated stevia into a paper bag and add warm donuts. Shake until they’re nicely coated. Or, dip in dark chocolate with a few drops of Sweetleaf Stevia drops. You can add shredded coconut, dark chocolate nibs, crushed nuts, dark chocolate sprinkles or whatever your donut loving heart desires.
