Nothing compares to a box of donuts. But unfortunately, they’re not the best option for people with a gluten intolerance.

That’s where these gluten-free donuts come in!

They’re just as tasty as any donut from the store. So if you make them for your next party, they’ll be a surefire hit!

In fact, you might want to write out these gluten-free donut recipes because everyone will want to try them at home!

23 Incredible Gluten Free Donut Recipes for Your Next Party

1. Glazed Yeast-Raised Gluten Free Donuts

I’ll never turn down a classic glazed donut. It’s as close to perfect as food can get!

And this gluten-free version tastes just like your favorite donut shop – but better!

Light and fluffy, these donuts will be your new favorite way to start the day. 

I guarantee you won’t want to share these scrumptious donuts. So make double!

2. Gluten-Free Vanilla Cake Donuts

If you’re more of a cakey donut fan, these vanilla-glazed delights will have you coming back for more. So maybe double the recipe and freeze a few donuts for later!. 

Cake donuts are soft and fluffy, and since they have a denser texture than yeast-raised, they can hold more fun toppings like sprinkles or nuts. 

With tons of sweet vanilla flavor, these donuts are ideal for kids.

3. Gluten-Free Cinnamon Sugar Donuts 

Cinnamon sugar donuts are another fan favorite. And they’re always a hit at the brunch table.

The soft, warm cake combined with crunchy spiced sugar is an experience like no other.

The flavor is incredible, and the textures are a treat. 

Don’t be afraid to get messy when you enjoy these babies. If you don’t have sugar around your mouth, you’re doing it wrong.

4. Light and Fluffy Gluten-Free Powdered Donuts

Speaking of messy: these gluten-free powdered donuts will definitely leave their mark. So I don’t advise wearing black!

When you coat the warm donuts in powdered sugar, it melts slightly with the heat. That’s what makes it stick!

To ensure they’re extra sweet, go ahead and add another layer before serving.

5. Ultimate Gluten Free Doughnuts

Jelly donuts are everything you could want in a donut. They’re soft, sugary, and fully loaded with gooey fruit jam.

And up until recently, it was almost impossible to make a good gluten-free jelly donut.

But thanks to all the new gluten-free flours on the market, you’d never even know these donuts are gluten-free.

So make a big batch and load them with jam, spreads, or cream. Yum!

6. Gluten Free Apple Cider Donuts

Our local orchard always has apple cider donuts for sale as soon as you walk in. And I always buy a box to enjoy while we’re apple picking.

But with this recipe, I can enjoy them any time I want!

Lovely apple cider flavor and warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg are baked right into these fluffy donuts. 

The sugar on the outside is the finishing touch that makes these donuts so delightful. 

One bite, and you’ll feel the crisp fall air on your face.

7. Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Donuts

Enjoy decadent dessert for breakfast with these sensational chocolate cake donuts.

With a tender and soft texture, these rich donuts will be a crowd-pleasing favorite – whether you’re gluten-free or not!

The decadent chocolate glaze is pure heaven. But feel free to add a simple smear of peanut butter.

8. Baked Strawberry Donuts – Gluten-Free and Vegan

Full of incredible fruity flavors, these strawberry donuts are nothing like the ones you get at the shop down the road.

They have an insanely fluffy sponge, and the sweet strawberry glaze will win over any gluten-free donut skeptic.

And they’re not only super tasty – they’re also super cute! Make a big batch for brunch or a party, and they’ll fly off the plate.

9. Gluten-free Maple Donuts {dairy-free}

Maple anything is my go-to choice for breakfast donuts. And these dairy- and gluten-free maple donuts are no exception.

The maple glaze is delightful, and the donuts are soft and fluffy.

I like to add mini chocolate chips to the batter for a boost of indulgence, but that’s optional.

Another terrific option (if you’re not vegan) is to sprinkle bacon bits over the top! Yum!

10. Gluten-Free Pumpkin Donuts

When fall comes around, pumpkin is in everything. And if you’re a serious PSL lover, you’ll want to bookmark these scrummy pumpkin donuts. 

The pumpkin flavor is fantastic and so yummy, you can eat these plain, and they’d still be a treat. 

That said, I adore the brown sugar glaze. It takes them from yummy to delectable in no time at all.

11. Baked Coconut Matcha Donuts (Gluten Free, Vegan)

How amazing do these coconut and matcha donuts look?

You’ll use chia or flax as an egg replacement and Medjool dates for natural sweetness.

And to keep it gluten-free, you’ll use a blend of oat flour, brown rice flour, and matcha powder.

Feel free to use a simple chocolate ganache for the topping. Or a quick glaze of matcha powder, powdered sugar, and water would work just as well.

12. Gluten Free Chocolate Orange Donuts

Chocolate and orange is a stunning blend of flavors. It’s rich, intense, citrusy, and lightly sweet.

This recipe only calls for orange zest for flavor, but I like to add orange oil, too, to really boost it.

If you can’t find orange oil, try an orange glaze instead. Just mix orange juice with powdered sugar, then stripe them with melted chocolate.

13. Gluten Free Boston Cream Doughnuts

Boston cream donuts are another favorite of mine.

Stuffed with heavenly pastry cream and smothered in a beautiful chocolate glaze, they’re decadent and totally irresistible.

I think these would be an excellent way to celebrate a birthday or holiday. But be careful – you may have a fight on your hands for the last one!

14. Gluten-Free Lemon Donuts

Lemon donuts are a summer treat that’s bright and cheerful. 

The cake is full of flavor, and they’re baked to perfection. Meanwhile, the glaze has a lovely lemon flavor from the fresh zest. 

Sunny and happy is the only way to describe these yummy donuts. They’ll be loved by kids and adults alike, so be sure to make extra!

15. Blueberry Donuts With 5 Ingredients | No yeast And No Eggs 

Blueberry donuts are ideal for breakfast. After all, with all those pops of juicy berries, they’re almost healthy!

They’re like elevated blueberry muffins with a delightfully jammy finish.

And the sweet glaze on top is perfect for rounding out the flavors.

16. Gluten-Free Gingerbread Donuts

Sorry, gingerbread man, but these donuts are the new Christmas favorite. 

The warm spices fill these donuts with incredibly comforting flavors. And you’ll love how soft they are!

On the inside, the ginger flavor really stands out. But it’s perfectly mellowed with the powdered sugar coating. 

That said, a drizzle of caramel would make them even more dreamy!

17. Gluten-Free Chocolate Coffee Donuts

Coffee and donuts go hand in hand, right? So why not combine the two for an absolutely delicious mocha experience?

There’s melted chocolate right in the batter, so you know it’s incredibly rich and flavorful.

But it’s the coffee glaze that really sets these apart.  

Even if you don’t love coffee, you’ll go gaga for these. The coffee enhances the chocolatey flavor and makes it downright devilish. 

18. Gluten Free Cookies and Cream Donuts

Cookies and cream donuts are a super fun way to start the day. 

It all starts with a chocolate cake donut covered in cream cheese icing. And yes, that’s as irresistible as it sounds.

But when you pack on the chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs? Oh man, they’re addictive! 

19. Healthy Baked Chocolate Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze

Chocolate donuts with peanut butter glaze will curb those Reese’s cravings in just one bite.

They’re soft, and rich, and honestly, the donuts are tasty enough to enjoy on their own.

But that salty-sweet glaze is too good to miss. And you can even top them with more peanuts or chocolate drizzle if you’re feeling extra!

20. Red Velvet Donuts

If you’re looking for a classic donut everyone will want seconds of, these gorgeous red velvet donuts are just the thing.

These cake-like treats are coated in a cream cheese glaze that’s simply to die for. I promise, you’ll crave these again and again. 

21. Gluten Free S’mores Donuts

S’mores donuts are the best way to enjoy your favorite outdoor dessert without the smoky campfire. 

It starts with another scrummy chocolate on chocolate donut I know you’ll enjoy.

But a simple sprinkle of gluten-free Graham Cracker crumbs and some mini marshmallows turn it into a dessert dream.

Make these during the summer – or any time of year – and they’ll be a hit. 

22. Chocolate Donuts With Chocolate Hazelnut Ganache 

These chocolate and hazelnut donuts are a must-make for the Nutella lovers of the world. 

The chocolate donut is moist and delicious and made even more luxurious with a sinful chocolate and hazelnut ganache. 

They’re so indulgent, you’ll crave another before you even finish the first!

23. Gluten Free & Vegan Caramel Doughnuts 

Did I save the best for last? I certainly think so, but I’ll let you decide!

These caramel donuts are incredible, spectacular, fantastic, stunning…you get the idea.

Light and airy donuts are filled with ooey-gooey caramel and coated in crunchy sugar.

Trust me, nobody can say no to one of these bad boys!
