Cinnamon Sugar Mini Doughnut Hole Muffins @mamamissblog #glutenfree #eggfree


These cinnamon sugar mini doughnut hole muffins are TO.DIE.FOR.  Seriously!

These little bites of perfection are…

  • gluten-free
  • egg-free

I’ve made these three times already, the first time for my friend Becca for a Pinterest party way back, who is gluten-free.  Let me just tell you, that I am not gluten-free myself, the only thing I can’t really digest is milk or soy milk.  Now this may just be me, but hold tight, when you hear things like “low sugar”, “gluten free”, “egg free”, “dairy free”,…etc, etc…my immediate reaction is to think eeew…so if it’s “free” of all these things it must taste like cardboard, no?!  Well, no!!  These are so very awesome, that I made them YET AGAIN for the Mother’s Day brunch that I hosted (and keep in mind not ONE person at this Mother’s Day brunch was gluten-free).  And further note…when it says gluten-free, just because YOU ARE able to eat gluten, does not mean you shouldn’t have these too – because YOU SHOULD – they are AMAZING x5 ;)  And they are little bites of heaven that can bring everyone together!!

Cinnamon Sugar Mini Doughnut Hole Muffins

The addition of nutmeg in these yummy, cinnamon-sugar-coated bites make them beyond delectable.


1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup gluten free all purpose baking flour, I use Bob's Red Mill
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup of almond milk
Sugar Coating
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
vegetable shortening, I use Crisco


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F and grease muffin pan generously with vegetable shortening.
  2. Combine baking powder & gluten-free flour in a small bowl; Set aside.
  3. Using a large bowl and mixer; Mix sugar, melted butter, and nutmeg together until combined.
  4. Add the almond milk and continue to mix.
  5. Slowly add in the flour mixture to the bowl, and mix until just combined.
  6. In greased muffin cups, pour batter, filling each cup about half full.
  7. Bake 15-17 minutes, until tops are lightly browned (watch the sides, they will brown first).
  8. Remove muffins from oven and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes.
  9. Remove muffins from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. While muffins are cooling - prep the coating. Melt butter in a small microwave safe bowl. In a separate small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon, stirring well.
  11. Once cool, roll each muffin in melted butter, then roll in cinnamon sugar.
  12. Serve and enjoy!

  1. Can u use all purpose regular flour??

  2. Thanks for posting this recipe!! My son has multiple food allergies so it’s tough for me to find gluten free AND egg free that actually rises and tastes decent. These were delish!!

  3. Made these this morning. Was very easy to follow the instructions. Once I had them made I couldn’t wait for the rest of the family. I tried one and then another… They are really good. I had to put them away from sight or I’ll eat them all. :o)
    Thanks for the recipe.

  4. I just made these & they totally fell apart! I did everything the same except used regular milk as we have a nut allergy. What happened???

  5. These were awesome! I only had 1% milk on hand and I didn’t have a mini muffin pan so I just made around 8 regular size muffins. I brushed the butter on the top and sides and rolled the muffin in the cinnamon sugar, I could of eaten these all right then and there (Hubby and I did get to try one as the official taste testers) but I made them the night before to have for breakfast and they were just as good the next morning.
