For Donuts

  • 1 c all purpose flour (or gluten free all purpose)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 T unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 c vanilla yogurt (whole milk yogurt is best)
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 1/4 c plus 1 T vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • dash of sea salt

For Glaze

  • 2/3 c confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 T pure maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together butter and egg until smooth. Add in yogurt, milk and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir to combine. The dough will be a thick consistency but if it seems a bit dry, add a splash of milk. Try not to over stir as well.
  • Spray oil into donut baking pan to coat. Spoon donut batter into the molds or pour batter into a plastic bag and cut a slit to fill donut molds. I prefer this method and found it to be a lot less messy!
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick comes up clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool thoroughly.
  • While donuts cool, or before serving, whisk together glaze adding maple to desired thickness and dip each donut into glaze and set aside to dry--or dig in immediately!
