These Gluten-Free Lavender Donuts Will Change Your Life

Posted by Bikini Owner

When I was growing up, I would go to the supermarket every Saturday morning with my mom for two reasons: 1) to pick out my cereal and 2) to hand select our weekend donuts. My favorites included maple cream sticks, apple fritters, and sour cream donuts.

Today's recipe serves as an homage to something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. No, no, I'm not having a second wedding, but I see no reason why this old rhyme has to be restricted to just the altar.

My something old is, of course, my former donut life resurrected in a gluten free, allergy friendly, vegan form while the something new is this new recipe. Something borrowed is this flavor combination, which I first experienced at Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream where I enjoyed the life changing Wildberry Lavender ice cream. Lastly, something blue is represented by the Wild Blueberry Glaze used to finish off these lovelies.

Lavender Donuts With Wild Blueberry Glaze

Prep time: 30 minutes  |  Bake time:  12 minutes  |  Total time: 45 minutes  |  Servings: 8 donuts

Ingredients

  • ½ cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon dried lavender, divided
  • 3 tablespoons flaxseed, finely ground
  • ¼ cup light olive oil
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup BG BAKES ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Directions

  1. Steep warm water with 1 tablespoon of dried lavender for 25-30 minutes. While tea is steeping, preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a standard donut pan with allergy friendly oil or vegan butter. Strain lavender tea and set aside.
  2. Process flaxseed and remaining 1 teaspoon of dried lavender in a food processor until finely ground. In a small mixing bowl, combine mixture with lavender tea.  Whisk well and set aside for a minimum of 5 minutes. This will serve as your “egg” in the recipe.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flaxseed mixture with oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and vinegar; mix until well combined. Sift in flour, salt, and baking soda. Once dry ingredients have been sifted in, mix batter until just combined. 
  4. Spoon batter into greased donut pan, evenly filling each donut mold to ¾ full. Bake for approximately 12 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Allow donuts to cool in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack for remainder of cooling.
  5. Decorate donuts by tossing in powdered sugar, granulated sugar, or with Wild Blueberry Glaze [recipe below]
