Gluten Free Maple Bar Doughnuts

Gluten Free Maple Bar Doughnuts

Maple bars have always been one of my favorite doughnuts. I love the flavor and the texture. Really I love everything about them. However, they are not gluten free. Yes, doughnuts are one of the things I really miss since going gluten free. There is nothing quite like a fresh from the bakery doughnut.

In my longing for a good doughnut, I have experimented quite a bit with homemade gluten free doughnuts over the last year. I have found quite a few that my family loves and these maple bar doughnuts were one of them.

I knew I could not get an exact copy of a maple bar in a gluten free version, but I thought I might be able to get pretty close on the taste. So, I decided to give it a try using maple extract and a maple glaze. And what I came up with was so close to a regular maple bar.

The texture is not the same because these are a baked cake like doughnut, but the taste is very close to the real thing. When I have a craving for a maple bar, these gluten free maple bar doughnuts will be what I turn to. Really these are so good. And they are gluten free, which makes them even better.

If you are like me and miss maple bars, give these a try. They are delicious!

  1. Hi Lynn,
    I was wondering do you still grind your own rice flour or are you ordering in bulk? Where do you typically get all your gluten free ingredients?

    • I do grind my own flour some, but due to time and busy schedules I have been mainly buying it the last few months. I get a lot of my gf ingredients from Amazon. In fact I just ordered more brown rice flour from Amazon this week. I also order from Azure Standard, which is a food co-op that has a drop in my area. They often quite a few gf things. And then also from the health food store and Sprouts which is a grocery store in our area. It depends what it is and the price on where I get it. I hope that helps.

      • Yes, this absolutely help. I recently moved and now have access to Sprout’s. Azure I have to remember to call and check on a drop in our new location- loved them where we were before! I think I need to find a local Asian Market too- they had awesome prices on sweet rice flour and potato starch where we lived before. Thanks again for your help and the reminder to check out Azure Standard!

  2. Can I use a gluten free flour blend with this recipe?

  3. If I wanted to gluten this would I just use 2 c regular flour in place of the first 4 ingredients? Thanks!

    • I got my wilton donut pan in the mail from Amazon yesterday because of stumbling over your chocolate donut recipe last week! 😉 Made them yesterday with my 3 little boys! Yum!!!

      • I am so glad that you enjoyed them. We love homemade donuts and although they are not healthy, they are at least better for you than the store ones. 🙂

    • Yes that should work. This was adapted from a regular doughnut recipe, so I think that would work fine. You might have to increase the liquid a little if the batter seems to thick, but otherwise I think it will work fine. Actually all my gluten free doughnuts are adapted from regular recipes, so it should work with anyone to use regular flour in place of the gluten free ones.
