Gluten & Dairy Free Samoa Donuts

samoa donuts with coconut and chocolate topping

Samoa Girl Scout cookies are my absolute favorite flavor. I haven’t been able to enjoy those ever since cutting out gluten, dairy and refined sugars. I recently bought a donut pan and then it hit me! I need to make Gluten & Dairy free Samoa flavored donuts!!! These came out great. I hope you make this recipe! Please tag me on instagram with your creations!

Dry Ingredients

2 cups Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 baking flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

Pinch of salt

3/4 cup coconut sugar (you can use brown sugar)

Wet Ingredients

3/4 cup almond milk (you can use regular milk)

2 eggs

1/2 tbsp vanilla flavoring

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

Vegan Salted Caramel Sauce Ingredients

1 can of full fat coconut milk (13 oz. Thai’s Kitchen recommended)

1/2 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)

1 tsp vanilla flavor

1 tsp salt


Coconut Flakes (Toasted or not toasted)

Melted Chocolate



Preheat oven to 420 F.

In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. I used my kitchen aid with the paddle attachment. You can use just a regular bowl and a rubber spatula.

Mix together all the wet ingredients with a whisk or fork.

Slowly, add in the wet mixture into the dry. Mix it well.

Prep your donut pan with some non-stick spray. Fill your donut vessels 3/4 of the way with the batter. You will need to spoon your batter and spread it out evenly since its thicker.

Bake in the oven for 10 min max.

While it is baking, make the caramel. Just mix all the ingredients together. Keep stirring until it starts to thicken. This should take about 10-15 minutes of stirring consistently. You want to bring it to a boil first then simmer until it thickens. You can store the remainder in a jar.

Take out the donuts and allow to cool before taking them out.

Place the caramel in a wide bowl. Dip the donuts into the caramel as a glaze.

Then top with coconut flakes. You can toast the coconut flakes if you would like in the oven or on the stovetop.

Then drizzle with melted chocolate. Allow this to cool/dry before diving in!!!

  2. I made this recipe twice once with almond flour and the egg and it was amazing and the second time I used a Flax egg so that it can be Vegan! The recipe is great and everyone loved it but when I made it with a flax egg it needed more time in the oven and it wasn’t easy to take it out of the donut pan! Thanks for sharing!
