Spiced Apple Cider Donuts

by Mikuna Foods

Donuts are often a soul nourishing treat. Apple cider donuts even more so: a winter treat reserved for when apples are fresh and warming spices are necessary to boost morale as short days and cold temperatures become the norm. Equally soul nourishing, our donuts are a more nutrient rich take on this beloved classic. Full of protein and fiber from chocho, naturally sweetened with maple syrup and apple cider, and gluten free friendly, these donuts are a win-win-win. They’re perfect as a more festive breakfast treat paired with coffee, matcha, tejate, or your favorite morning beverage, wonderful as a snack, and decadent enough for a dessert.


  • 1 ⅓ cups gluten free baking flour
  • ⅜ cup Original Chocho Protein
  • ¼ cup maple syrup 
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ginger powder
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  2. In mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients
  3. In a separate bowl mix all of the wet ingredients
  4. Slowly incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a whisk 
  5. It is ideal to have a donut mold, but if you don’t you can pipe donut shapes onto a oiled baking sheet
  6. If using a donut mold, oil the mold and then pipe the donut mixture into the molds
