We usually use our Famous Karma Baker GF Flour to make donuts, but I was looking for something a little different. A nice hearty flavor that oats provide nicely. These turned out better than I hoped. We now have them everyday at the Karma Baker bakery.
Be sure to use Certified gluten free oats, if you are celiac. Also to make the buttermilk, it’s important to use a high protein milk. We use soy and get the best results. I’m afraid rice milk will not work well here. Nut milks are the next best choice.
Preheat Oven to 350
Spray a donut pan with coconut oil and set aside.
Combine the soy milk with the lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. stir and set aside until the end the recipe. This is now your buttermilk. It will thicken as it sits.
Sift together dry ingredients in an medium bowl.
in mixing bowl combine wet ingredients (except for the soy milk). Mix on low until the sugar crystals melt... about 3 minutes.
Add the dry ingredients and mix for a minute to combine. Slowly add in the "buttermilk" and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Fill each donut ring 1/2 way full. Bake 10 min at 350.
Allow to cool about 10 minutes in pan and revoke while still bait warm. Rest on a cooling rack over a pan.
Make your Cinnamon Sugar.
Brush each donut (both sides) with warmed coconut oil and roll in cinnamon sugar to coat. Enjoy!
