Gluten Free Cinnamon Donuts Recipe

Make delicious gluten free cinnamon donuts with this easy to follow recipe. When it comes to special treats, gluten free cinnamon donuts always make the list. Making them from scratch can seem overwhelming, but they are fast and easy

I especially like to bring these to kids birthday parties instead of the usual cupcakes. They just love them. Bring various toppings and let the kids decorate the donuts by themselves. Since they are gluten free and nut free, they make a tasty sweet treat for children’s birthdays. Some other favourite toppings are chocolate glaze and maple glaze. It is important to remember that donuts are treat on special occasions only
