  • Author: Allison Olivia
  • Yield: 12 donut holes 1x


Warm, gooey, and sweet donut holes that are gluten-free and perfect for curing that sweet tooth.




  • Oil for frying
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten-free pancake mix
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons olive or coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free milk plus 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 egg


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dairy-free milk



  1. In a deep fryer or heavy saucepan, heat 2 to 3 inches oil to 375°F.
  2. In a bowl, mix ingredients together to form the dough.
  3. Use a 1 tablespoon cookie dough scooper and scoop the dough. Carefully drop balls, 5 or 6 at a time, into the hot oil.
  4. Fry about 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown on all sides.
  5. Drain on paper towels. Immediately roll in the glaze.
  6. Serve.


  1. Whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until glaze forms. Drizzle on the doughnut holes


I used unsweetened almond milk as a lactose-free alternative, but you can obviously use regular milk
