I was obsessed with 101 Dalmatians growing up. So obsessed that I remember dressing up as one for Halloween multiple years in a row with my toy dalmatian by my side. That was until the toy was replaced by a real dalmatian when I was in third grade. His name was Jazz and he was the BEST buddy for me being an only child. Even though I’m sure Poppy will have a sibling one day, this is NOT a pregnancy announcement, I like to image Poppy looking back on memories with Aero. Yeah, Aero isn’t as buddy buddy as a dog could be, but she is OBSESSED with him and I’m sure she’ll get him to cuddle her soon enough.
Gluten Free Halloween Sprinkle Donuts:
- 1 cup gluten free 1-to-1 flour
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (I used homemade!)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup melted grass fed butter (sub vegan butter here to make vegan)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened nut milk
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/3 cup halloween sprinkles, I found these in the dollar section at @target
- 2 tbsp coconut or almond milk
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- extra halloween sprinkles for the tops
- Preheat oven to 350F and spray two donut pans with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to mix wet ingredients and coconut sugar together until smooth. Whisk together dry ingredients, except for sprinkles, in a separate bowl and then gently mix dry into wet. Mix in sprinkles. Pour batter into 12 donut slots and bake for 20 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
- Make glaze while donuts are cooling by whisking all the glaze ingredients together, except for sprinkles, in a shallow dish. Dip the top of the cooled donut into the glaze then sprinkle with a few extra sprinkles. Repeat until all donuts are decorated and ready to devour!
Note: the sprinkles I bought bled a little into the batter making them appear darker. So be careful how much you mix in the sprinkles. I only did a couple stirs and it left a cool swirly vibe on the donuts. Comment below your favorite childhood costume memory!
