Are you ready for a tasty donut recipe that just happens to be both gluten free and vegan? I know, it’s hard to believe but they are! They’re made with a combination of almond flour and coconut flour.

If you love these donuts, be sure to try my cold brew donuts.  I’ve even got a coffee protein frosting to go with them!

These homemade donuts are made from scratch and will melt in your mouth, keeping you coming back for more. They’re the perfect blend of that chocolate peanut butter combo we all love so much, and light enough not to weigh you down after eating one (or a dozen!).  Perfect for a homemade brunch, an easy meal prep breakfast, or as a dessert!

Tips for the Best Vegan and Gluten Free Donuts

First of all – if you need to, first things first, get yourself a donut pan.  If you want to make larger ones, I recommend this pan.

There is no oil used in this baked donut recipe.  It is also vegan, dairy free, and gluten free.  But you would never think you are eating something less indulgent than any other “normal” donut you’d go out and buy. 

The glaze is made with powdered sugar.  But if you’d like to make this recipe refined sugar free, top them with my chocolate buttercream sweet potato frosting or my 5 Ingredient HEALTHY Chocolate Frosting.

To ensure your donuts stay intact, let them cool completely in the pan before removing them.  This is another reason I like to use these silicone donut pans.  They are much easier to work with and the little bit of give they allow can help you shimmy those donuts out without breaking them.

In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:

  • a donut pan (I use a silicone one for easy use)
  • 2 large mixing bowls
  • whisk (for glaze)
  • 1 small mixing bowl (for glaze)

DONUT Worry and enjoy your brunching!

This baked donut recipe combines our favorite chocolate and peanut butter combo into a healthy donut that is fluffy, moist, gluten free, and drizzled with homemade glaze!




  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup chocolate peanut butter or regular peanut butter (see note)
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

I like the Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter from PB&Co.
