Baked Cinnamon Donuts with Maple Glaze

Ever since I got a donut pan years ago to make these gingerbread donuts, I’ve been dreaming up flavor combinations for more baked donuts. To me, one of the best flavors in a donut is maple. And what goes amazing with maple? Cinnamon! Thus, these baked cinnamon donuts with maple glaze were born. Imagine how incredible these will be in the fall with a hot cup of coffee!

Here’s why I know you’ll love this baked donut recipe:

  • They’re baked! I love deep-fried food just as much as the next person, but it’s a little intimidating. So, these are easily baked in a donut pan (or a muffin tin).
  • They’re vegan.
  • These donuts are gluten-free! The star of this baked donut recipe is oat flour made from One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats. One Degree Organics carries a variety of flours for all your baking needs, including Organic Spelt Flour (contains wheat) and Organic Sprouted Brown Rice Flour (gluten-free).
  • They come together in about 30 minutes.

Ingredients for Baked Cinnamon Donuts

Here’s everything you’ll need to make these vegan cinnamon donuts:

  • One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats. These oats are certified gluten-free and add a soft yet hearty texture to these cinnamon donuts.
  • Non-dairy milk. Whatever unsweetened milk works.
  • Vinegar. When combined with the non-dairy milk, this makes a thick vegan buttermilk.
  • Sugar.
  • Baking powder and baking soda.
  • Cinnamon. We’re using a lot of it to give these donuts a rich cinnamon flavor.
  • Salt.
  • Applesauce. This adds moisture, making the donuts super fluffy.
  • Nut butter. Alternatively, you can use sunflower seed butter or another option for a nut-free alternative.
  • Maple syrup. This gives the glaze a nice maple flavor.
  • Vanilla.
  • Powdered sugar. Helpful hack: if you’re out of powdered sugar, throw some granulated sugar in a blender and blend until a powder forms.

What I love most about One Degree Oats is that they genuinely care about and respect the farmers with whom they partner. You can see that clearly in the time they spend visiting farms and connecting with the families who run these farms, plus the fair prices they pay for crops. I love that on every bag of One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats (and the rest of their products, including flours for baking), you can scan the QR code on the back to see who grew the exact oats you’re eating. So cool!

How to Make these Gluten Free Donuts

Making these baked cinnamon donuts couldn’t be easier! Also, what I love about this recipe is that it can also be made in a muffin tin, if you prefer that or don’t have a donut pan.

Here are the basic steps for baking this vegan donut recipe:

  1. Make the vegan buttermilk.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients, including oat flour made from One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats (if you don’t have a food processor, One Degree also has flours for purchase!)
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
  5. Pour the batter into the pan and bake.
  6. Make the glaze, then glaze donuts when they’re cooled.

How to Make Maple Glaze for Donuts

Luckily, making the maple glaze for these baked cinnamon donuts is super easy!

The main base of the glaze is powdered sugar and non-dairy milk. However, you only need a LITTLE BIT of milk, so be careful measuring so you don’t have to start over. A tablespoon of maple syrup adds a touch of maple flavor. If you want to pack even more maple flavor, you can use a drop or so of maple extract.

All you have to do is stir all these ingredients together, then glaze the baked donuts. However, make sure the donuts have cooled so the glaze doesn’t just run off.

Ingredients

For the donuts:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk

  • 2 cups One Degree Organics Sprouted Rolled Oats
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

For the glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened non-dairy milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease a donut pan. (These also work in a muffin pan.)
  2. In a medium bowl, add non-dairy milk and vinegar. Stir to combine; set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Add oats to a blender or food processor.** Blend until a fine flour forms, about 2 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl, add oat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine.
  5. To the milk mixture, add applesauce, nut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Whisk until fully combined.
  6. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until the ingredients are fully combined.
  7. Add batter to each donut cup until full. (If using a muffin, fill each cup about 3/4 full.)
  8. Bake for 15-17 minutes in a donut pan, or X minutes in a muffin pan. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  9. In a small bowl, add glaze ingredients. Whisk until combined, then drizzle over donuts.

Notes

*Use a nut-free alternative like sunflower seed butter, if needed.

**If you don’t have a food processor or blender up to the job, One Degree Organics also has flours available for purchase! I’m doing it this way because I love the flavor imparted by the oats.
