These gluten free donuts are wholesome and egg free! Made with real food ingredients, these are a fun breakfast you can serve up the family anytime!
Gluten free donuts are all the rage, and I knew my kids would love just about anything I put into a donut form….I mean they’re cute, am I right? And kideeze…that speaks LOUDLY!
We were all thrilled with the results….moist banana donuts with no starches, no gums, and totally nourishing for your body. That puts this recipe well into my happy court!
My Favorite Donut Pan
I purchased a donut pan for $12 on amazon. It’s easy to use and fun to have around!
No Donut Pan? No Problem!
Refer to this post on how to free form donuts when you do not have a donut pan. (If you do this method, you will need to add additional flour to thicken, start with about 1/4 to 1/2 cup).
OR, simply bake these bad boys up in a mini muffin pan…still great!!

Gluten Free Banana Donut Recipe:
Wholesome Banana Donuts - Gluten Free & Vegan
- 1 tablespoon chia meal or flax meal
- 3 tablespoons warm water
- 3 tablespoons non dairy milk or any milk
- 2 over-ripe bananas lots of brown spots, mashed
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted, or other oil of choice
- 1/4 cup palm sugar or other granulated sugar of choice I replace half with 1/4+ teaspoon liquid stevia
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup oat flour whir your own rolled oats in a spice grinder or blender
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon optional
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease your donut pan.
In a mixing bowl, place the chia meal and warm water, stirring to thicken and make a chia egg. Let gel for a minute.
Stir in the rest of the 'wet' ingredients.
Sprinkle the dry ingredients on top, and whisk in. Let the batter rest a couple minutes to fully absorb some liquid.
Using a spoon, scoop up about a tablespoon of batter, and drizzle/plop it into the donut space. Fill the tins about 3/4 the way, and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes (for mini donuts) until just set. If you are using a large donut pan w/ 6 donuts shapes, you will need to bake an additional 3-4 minutes.
