Say hello to your new favourite treat! These baked donuts are loaded with lemon and poppy seed flavour and baked to perfection!

Recipe adapted from it doesn’t taste like chicken 





  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 12 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tsp poppy seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, cane sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, lemon zest and poppy seeds.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the almond milk, lemon juice, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together just until combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Spoon the batter into a piping bag, or a large ziplock bag and cut a hole in the corner.
  6. Spray your donut pan with some cooking spray, and then pipe the batter into the pan.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. To make the icing, mix the powdered sugar, almond milk, lemon juice, vanilla, lemon zest and poppy seeds together until combined.
  9. Once the donuts are cooled, dip them into the icing. Let sit for 30 minutes for the icing to set.


I use this donut pan to make this recipe

Some gluten-free flours don’t have xantham gum already added to them, which will help the donuts rise. If your blend doesn’t have it, add 1/4 tsp xantham gum to the recipe.
