I developed the recipe for these donuts exclusively for Mother Magazine. A healthy treat made with clean, natural ingredients and perfect for the entire family. I say, let the little ones get creative with the toppings – anything goes! 🙂


1⅓ cup gluten-free oat flour
⅔ cup tapioca flour
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
2 eggs at room temperature
½ cup vegan butter
½ cup raw honey
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 ½ Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
¼ cup shredded coconut


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease the bottom of a donut pan and set aside. Add the eggs, vegan butter, honey, banana and vanilla extra to a medium bowl and combine using an electric mixer, about 1 minute. In a separate bowl combine the oat flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix using the electric mixer until batter is smooth. Using a large spoon, transfer the batter to the donut pan and fill until two-thirds full. Bake 20-25 min, or until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean. Place donuts on a drying rack and let cool completely.

Topping Instructions

To melt the chocolate, fill the bottom of a saucepan with water, about 1 inch, and allow water to a simmer. Set a glass bowl in the mouth of the pot, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Add the chocolate chips, and stir occasionally as it softens. Once melted, remove from heat. Set aside and let cool. Using a spatula, cover the tops of the donuts with the melted chocolate and decorate with shredded coconut. Enjoy!
