Who doesn’t love mini donuts? Especially if they have a glaze! Allergen-friendly donuts can be hard to come by, but luckily they can easily be made at home in the oven. These mini donuts are bursting with strawberry flavor, with strawberries in the batter and a strawberry glaze. Spring time perfection!

Ingredients for Gluten Free Strawberry Donuts

  • Coconut Flour. Coconut flour helps absorb excess moisture from the berries in this recipe! I haven’t tried other flours and can’t recommend a good swap that would work 1:1.
  • Tigernut flour. I haven’t tried a good swap for tigernut flour in this recipe.
  • Coconut Yogurt and Apple Sauce. This adds extra moisture to the recipe with out using butter or eggs. I love the brand Culina for coconut yogurt.
  • Coconut Milk. My favorite is Native Forest Simple Variety.
  • Tapioca Starch. I use this tapioca starch.
  • Coconut Sugar.
  • Gelatin. This acts as a binder, and collagen will not swap 1:1.
  • Strawberries. See below for details on swapping other berries if you want to try!
  • Baking Powder. I use this baking powder!
  • Coconut Butter and Coconut Oil. If you want to make an AIP glaze!
  • Powdered Sugar. If you can tolerate it, I love this organic powdered sugar

Tips & Tricks

  • The brand of coconut flour makes a difference. I find a big variance in my baked goods if I use different coconut flour. They all have different levels of absorbency. I highly recommend sticking with Anthony’s brand, linked in the recipe as that’s my favorite to bake with.
  • Make full-sized donuts! This recipe should work just fine as full-sized donuts, but be careful transferring them out of the pan so they don’t break.

How to make this recipe AIP?

The only portion of this recipe that isn’t AIP is the glaze as it uses powdered sugar. Simply go with the AIP glaze listed, or you can even leave the glaze off for a simpler recipe.

Can you use different berries like blueberries or raspberries?

Both blueberries and raspberries would likely work. However, blueberries can get mushier than diced strawberries, so you may have to use less.
