  • 2 eggs
  • cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 3 tablespoon butter melted, or coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups gluten free 1:1 flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves

For the coating

  • 2 tablespoon butter melted, or coconut oil
  • cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs and brown sugar until well combined.
  • Add the apple cider, melted butter, and vanilla extract to the bowl and whisk well.
  • Fold in the gluten free 1:1 flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves until no flour clumps remain.
  • Grease a doughnut pan well with oil and spoon the doughnut batter into each cavity about ¾ of the way full. Bake the pan in the oven for 10 -12 minutes until the sides of the doughnuts are golden brown and pulling away from the sides. Let the doughnuts cool down before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Grease the pan again with oil and repeat the baking process with the remaining batter.
  • Once all the doughnuts have cooled down, melt the butter in a bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Dip each doughnut into the melted butter and coat both sides with the cinnamon sugar mixture until well coated. Place the doughnuts back on the wire rack to set and enjoy!
