Perfectly sweet peanut butter chocolate gluten free donuts made with only a few ingredients and topped with a yummy peanut butter glaze!



For the Donuts:

  • 1 cup off all-purpose gluten free flour
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp sweetener of choice (I used truvia)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk (I used cashew)
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp vegan butter
  • (optional) sprinkles to top

For the Glaze:

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp powdered peanut butter  (I used The Lion’s Choice Kit Kat kind since it had the crunchy pieces on it)
  • 1 1/4 tsp non-dairy milk


For the Donuts:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a donut pan with non-stick spray. I recommend using a silicon pan as the batter is less likely to stick.
  2. Add all dry ingredients into a medium-sized bowl and combine.
  3. Melt the peanut butter and vegan butter in a small bowl in the microwave for 20 seconds.
  4. Add the peanut butter and vegan butter mixture into another bowl with the rest of the wet ingredients and mix until the ingredients are combined.
  5. Add the wet to the dry and combine.
  6. Add the batter into a medium-sized ziplock bag and cut a hole in the corner of it. Then, pipe the batter into the donut tray until they are full. You will have enough batter to make 8 donuts.
  7. Bake for 22-28 minutes. Make sure you check the middle of the donut as this is likely the last place they will bake. So, when you are putting a toothpick in it I would recommend putting it in the center first.
  8. Let them cool for 10 minutes and then dip them in the glaze mixture.
  9. Top with sprinkles and store in an airtight container for 2 days.

For the Glaze:

  1. Add all the ingredients into a small bowl that is large enough to dip the donuts in. 
  2. If you prefer a thinner icing, I would a dash more of milk. Alternatively, if you would like a thicker icing, I would add less milk.
  3. Once the donuts have cooled lightly dip them halfway and twist them at the end.
