As we continued on our grain free adventure, the kids NEEDED a breakfast treat. Enter the amazing Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour. Everything I have made with it has been A+. We have been making awesome pancakes; actually this batter doubles as a pancake batter and has become a staple around here on the weekends, but donuts were really the request. So off I went to buy a donut pan and create a breakfast treat!
Apple cider donuts are always a favorite in the Fall and I had some cider in my fridge… see what happened there?
The kids LOVED helping with these, especially the sprinkling of the cinnamon sugar on top!
I think we have figured all grains may not be the issue, but we will still make these, that good!
- 1 Cup Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour
- 1/4 Teaspoon salt
- 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 Teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 Cup grated peeled apple*
- 1/3 Cup apple cider
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 3 Tablespoons real maple syrup
- 2 Tablespoons melted butter/coconut oil/ghee (depending on if you are paleo or just grain free!)
- extra cinnamon and coconut sugar for sprinkling
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees if making donuts, if pancakes preheat your griddle.
- Mix together all dried ingredients in large bowl.
- Then add in the grated apple and rest of the wet ingredients. Mix well making sure the egg is fully incorporated into the batter.
- If making donuts, grease your donut pan, I like to use coconut oil spray. Fill each donut in the pan with about 4 teaspoons of batter. This should make 9-10 donuts.
- Optional, mix a bit of coconut sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle about 1/2 a teaspoon on top of each donut.
- Place in oven and bake until golden brown, 13-15 minutes. Test with an inserted toothpick to make sure it comes out clean.
- If making pancakes, ladle out a 1/8 – 1/4 cup of batter on a hot greased (ghee, coconut oil, butter) griddle. Flip when bubbles form in the pancake. Cook a few more minutes and remove to a plate. Continue with the remaining batter, adding more grease as needed.
*for grated apple, take a peeled and cored apple quarter a rub over a cheese grater (like this one) or alternatively run through the grater disk in your food processor.
