I can literally take zero credit in coming up with this recipe. In fact, it’s not even a donut recipe. It’s honestly a recipe that comes on the back of a box, and I just happened to buy a cute donut mold and take some cute pictures.
But I’m telling you what. When you don’t eat gluten, OR dairy, and you’re wanting a donut, these babies will do the trick. So for that – you’re welcome. For the rest, you can thank Simple Mills.
One piece of advice, plan your baking time and ingredients accordingly. The chocolate mix is a muffin and cake mix, and the vanilla mix is a cake and cupcake mix. What this means.. is that yes they’re both delicious, but sometimes I’ve noticed the finished product with the chocolate mix comes out a little more dry than the vanilla mix.
What you’ll need:
- 1 box of Simple Mills Chocolate or Vanilla Mix
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1 tbsp vanilla
What you’ll do:
- Follow the instructions on the back of your Simple Mills Box 😉
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
- Grease your donut pan
- Whisk all ingredients together
- Pour batter into donut pan (do not fill to line, otherwise they may overflow a little – not a big deal, they just won’t have that perfectly round shape. You can see in my photos I filled the pan a little high)
- Bake for 15-20 minutes
You can make muffins, cupcakes, donuts, or whatever 😉 For fun, I melted a little bit of almond butter in the microwave and drizzled on top!
Another fave? Add some sprinkles because sprinkles make everything better.
