Golden Milk Donuts! Easy, fluffy, turmeric-infused baked donuts with just the right amount of spice and a sweet golden glaze on top. Vegan and gluten-free!
Even down here in sunny Florida it has been extra chilly this week which means sunshine in dessert form is very much welcomed. Enter: Golden Milk Donuts.
While we cannot control the weather, we can throw a bunch of good for you ingredients in a bowl with cozy spices and a little sweetness and mix/bake into perfectly fluffy rings of golden goodness. We are talking main characters like applesauce and oat flour and turmeric coconut milk, with cinnamon and ginger and cardamom and vanilla playing delicious supporting roles.
Don’t have a muffin pan? Make them into mini muffins!
Don’t like turmeric? Skip it and add extra cinnamon and ginger.
Want to make them extra wholesome and breakfast-y? Skip the glaze and enjoy their fluffiness topping free.
Want to treat yourself to the ultimate Golden Milk Donut Experience? Dip generously into sweet 3-ingredient golden glaze, sprinkle with coconut, and let them dry until the glaze is a perfect crackly compliment to the fluffy insides. You will not regret it.Print

These look great! I can’t have oats or nuts and I’m wondering if you have a substitution suggestion for the oat flour. More coconut flour? Or maybe tiger it or cassava flour?
Cassava flour will work! Or quinoa or buckwheat would be good too👌
I’m so making these. How long did you have the mini donuts in the oven? I only have a mini one.
Minis usually take between 12 and 15 minutes. Hope you enjoy Jennifer!

Can we make the turmeric milk? I have both ingredients in my cupboard already! 😁
Yes absolutely! Just blend 1 cup full fat coconut milk and 1/2-1 tsp (depending on how much you like turmeric) turmeric 🙂
Just made these, absolutely divine! Did not have the turmeric coconut milk near me so I blended ~1 tbsp freshly grated turmeric with the coconut milk. The spices are perfect. *Almost* too beautiful to devour:-)
Wahoooo!! I am so very happy to hear that Carsyn🤗 And thanks for sharing your turmeric swap too!
Been so wanting to try this recipe. I don’t have a doughnut tin so would a muffin tray work instead? or what else would you suggest?
Yes a muffin pan will absolutely work too! Or a mini muffin to make “donut holes” if you use a full size muffin pan I would recommend 25-30 minutes for bake time, and for minis usually 12-15 is perfect 🙂
Can I use unsweetened almond milk to replace the coconut milk?
You can, but they might be a bit dry due to the difference in fat content!
would light coconut milk work as well?
sure! Although still lower fat content 🙂
