Christmas Baked Donut Holes {Gluten-Free}

I love waking up Christmas morning and trying out some new yummy recipe. Not that I was ever a big donut-eater, but I do enjoy them from time to time and since going gluten free not at all (almost 3 years now!). So I was excited to find this recipe and tweaked it a little to make it my own. I would like to try frying them in coconut oil- I think they would come out with the perfect donut hole consistency. Baking was easy, less messy and still very yummy!

Gluten Free Baked (or Fried) Donut Holes

1/4 c coconut sugar (or your favorite sugar, I would probably use sucanat)
dash salt
1/4 c melted coconut oil (or you can use butter, palm shortening, just please no margarine!)
splash of vanilla extract
dash cinnamon
5 T coconut flour

olive oil spray (for baking) or coconut oil (for frying)
powdered sugar and/or cocoa powder to roll in after baking

Cream together all ingredients except for the coconut flour. Slowly add flour and continue stirring. Once fully combine let sit for one minute.

Spray glass baking dish (I use a pie pan) with olive oil and preheat oven to 350. Roll dough into 12 balls and place in baking dish. Bake approximately 15 minutes OR melt coconut oil in pan/pot and fry for a few minutes until browned.

Allow holes to cool and roll in powdered sugar and/or cocoa powder.


  1. I love donut holes! I always have to have one if they are around me! (:

  2. My favorite were always the chocolate holes with the clear glaze, I might have to alter this recipe to try to mimic those- they were always the ones I couldn't say no to!
