Baked Apple Fritter Doughnuts, gluten free
My husband adores the sticky fried apple fritters that you buy at the grocery store. I cringe when he picks them up, and I really hate that he's eating saturated fat, sugar and chemicals.
Did you know that a store bought Apple Fritter has 300 calories? Yikes!
So, today I made a healthy Gluten Free Baked Apple Fritter Doughnut recipe for him. I hoped would please him and they did!  That just made my day.  :)

  1. These look yummy. And I think I have most everything to make them. YAY!

    1. Hi SaraBeAn, did you try them? I would love to hear your results!

  2. Do you have any suggestions for an alternate for the pancake mix? Don't have any and would like to try these. Thanks!

  3. Good morning! The ingredients in Bob's Pancake Mix are potato starch, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, corn flour, evaporated cane juice, baking powder (sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, corn starch, monocalcium phosphate), baking soda, sea salt, xanthan gum. I would try replicating with 1/4 cup ea. potato starch, sorghum, tapioca, corn flour (masa), 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum and more cane sugar to taste. I hope that works for you!

    1. Thank you! Hope to try them soon.
