If you are ever on Pinterest like me, you've probably seen pictures for the Donut Muffins.
A delicious combo of a donut and a muffin!
I have always wanted to make a allergy free jelly filled donut, but I'm really not into taking the time to figure it out right now! Having it in muffin form helps take away the yeast and deep frying aspect of that type of donut and makes for a much quicker and healthy option if you are craving the flavor!
This recipe will give you the taste of a donut with the nutmeg and cinnamon and the tender bite that they normally have. I couldn't decide on just one preserve so I used a strawberry and blueberry- you could even try some allergy free chocolate chips in the middle if you want to kick it up a notch! You can sprinkle the tops with the powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar if you like, but are just fine without if you aren't wanting the extra sugar kick!
At some point I will put the time in and figure out a gluten free, vegan, allergy free...etc...jelly filled donut, but for now this recipe hits the spot!
These are a big hit at home and simple to make, I hope you enjoy them as we do!
gluten free/vegan....allergy free
Jelly Donut Muffins:
paper lined muffin tin
3/4 Cup Brown Rice Flour
1/2 Cup White Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Potato Starch
1/4 Cup Tapioca Starch
1/4 tsp. Xantham Gum
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Fine Sea Salt
1/4 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Organic Raw Sugar or Coconut Palm Sugar
1/3 Cup Oil (your choice)
1 1/2 tsp. Egg Replacer mixed with 1 TB Oil (your choice) and 1 TB Milk Substitute (I used Rice) 1 Cup Milk Substitute (I used Rice Milk unsweetened)
1/8 tsp. Crystallized Lemon Powder (or 1/4 tsp Lemon Juice)
1 tsp. Organic Pure Vanilla Extract
Jam or Preserves
Organic Powdered Sugar and/or Cinnamon Sugar for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners.
In a small bowl whisk together brown rice flour, white rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, xantham gum, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Set aside. In another small bowl stir together milk substitute and lemon, set aside.
In bowl with paddle attachment add sugar, oil, egg replacer mixture and vanilla. Mix on medium until blended together. Next add in 1/2 of the "milk" mixture and 1/2 of the flour mixture. Mix on low, scraping down when needed until incorporated. Add in the rest of the milk mixture and flour mixture and mix on medium low until blended. Fill muffin pan with 1 TB of batter, add 1/2 TB of jelly or preserves of choice and top with remaining batter (about 1 1/2 TB each). Bake 18- 20 minutes until done or a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 5 to 10 minutes and sprinkle with powdered sugar and/or cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
