Dairy and Gluten Free Recipes


Gluten free Almond chai spice donuts

Your gluten free & dairy free baked donuts.

The taste of gluten free chai-spiced donuts is the perfect warm, comforting flavour for any winter day. With a blend of spices such as cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg the combination of spices with almond flour creates a fragrant and flavourful donut. The nutty flavour of almonds is a nice depth of flavour that calls for a well balanced tasty treat.



  • 2 cup of almond flour
  • 1/4 cup of tapioca flour
  • 1 1/2 baking powder
  • 1/4 cup of coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup of maple sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of all spice
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon

For the Chai Spice Glaze (See picture below)

  • 1 cup of confectioner sugar
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 tbsp of chai tea – brewed

Why I love baked gluten free donuts: They are made by mixing the ingredients together and then baking them in the oven. Simple. Plus baked donuts are also easier because they don’t require any special equipment like a deep fryer. I also love how lighter, fluffy, cake- like they tend to be, rather than fried donuts. They are also considered to be a healthier alternative so go ahead and indulge!
