Print Recipe Baked Gluten Free Cinnamon Sugar Donuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Grease donut tray with coconut oil.
Add water, sugar, coconut oil, eggs and vanilla to a small bowl. Whisk thoroughly until sugar is dissolved.
Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt to a large bowl. Mix well.
Add wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl. Mix well until all ingredients are combined. Mixture should be a thick batter consistency.
Add mixture into a gallon size storage bag, pushing dough to the bottom of the bag, or add to a piping bag. If you're using a storage bag, cut off about 1/4 inch from one corner. If you need to cut off more, do it gradually. Cutting off too much will lead to a goopy, oozy mess.
Pipe the dough into each mold, about halfway to the top. The easiest way to do this is to press firmly from the top, pressing down, rather than squeezing from the bottom. You'll have more control while piping.
Bake at 375 for about 6 to 7 minutes, or until donuts are golden brown.
While donuts are baking, add coconut oil to one small round bowl (larger than the circumference of the donut). Add cinnamon and sugar to a separate bowl. Mix gently. Set both bowls aside.
Remove donuts from oven, allow to cool momentarily, then flip donuts out of pan.
When the donuts are comfortable to handle, dip the top of the donuts into the oil, then the sugar mixture.
Enjoy right away, or store in an airtight container. I suggest refrigerating the donuts as the sugar mixture can "melt" into the donuts if left out in a warmer kitchen.
