Gluten-Free Strawberry Donuts

Happy Thursday!  We are in the midst of a very summer-like weather pattern with high humidity and thunderstorms (some of them severe) pretty much every day.  Summer-ing with kiddos gets challenging during these days and I find that it takes more creativity to keep everyone happy and engaged.

Now onto these donuts!  Strawberries have been simply amazing this season, consistently sweet.  I'm on a donut kick right now and I realized I did not have a strawberry donut recipe out.  These ones took a couple of tries because using fruit pieces can be challenging with gluten-free baked goods, at least for me, to mantain consistency.

Here is the recipe I used:


1 cup almond Bob's Red Mill almond flour
1/8 cup Bob's Red Mill tapioca flour
1/2 cup diced strawberries (small pieces)
2 scoops Vegan Smart pea protein powder
1 tsp almond extract
2 eggs
4 oz unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp baking soda


Preheat the oven to 350F and spray the bottom of a donut tray with oil.  Wash the strawberries and cut them into small pieces.  Mix the wet and dry ingredients separately and then combine them together.  This mix is enough for 6 donuts.  Flatten the tops with a spoon.  Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until a knife is inserted clean.  Allow to cool for about 10 minutes on a rack. 

Here are the nutrition facts for these donuts.  As you can see they have a good amount of protein in them!  I served them with some peanut butter this morning and they were a hit with my kiddos.  My toddler did not seem to mind the fruit pieces which was a pleasant surprise.  As always, they have no added sugar. 

Do you think you will try these donuts?  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
