Ask an adult for help because the recipe sounds quite challenging. 


Donut Ingredients

  • Nonstick spray, for greasing
  • 1⅓ cups superfine brown rice flour
  • ½ cup  superfine white rice flour
  • ½ cup  tapioca starch/flour
  • ½ cup GF almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon mace or nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (or 2 turns of the grinder)
  • 2 small very ripe bananas, peeled and pureed
  • ½ cup sour cream or full-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 extra-large eggs
  • 9 tablespoons or ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brewed coffee (decaf is fine)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Glaze Ingredients

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons hot tap water
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup pecans, toasted and roughly chopped


Donut Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F (175° C). Grease two 6-count donut pans generously with nonstick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, almond flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt, mace, cardamom, cinnamon and black pepper. In a large bowl, beat together the banana, sour cream, maple syrup, eggs, butter, granulated sugar, coffee and vanilla. Add the dry mixture and mix until fully incorporated.
  3. Scoop the batter into the prepared pans, filling each donut cup a scant half-full. Rap the pan on the countertop to smooth the batter.
  4. Bake the donuts for 16 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few crumbs.
  5. Carefully transfer the hot, fragile donuts to a rack and let cool completely before adding the glaze.


Glaze Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the sifted confectioners’ sugar with the maple syrup and stir. Add the hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and continue stirring until the mixture is thoroughly mixed, no lumps remain, and it drizzles off the spoon slowly. Add the vanilla and stir again.
  2. Spoon the glaze over the top side of the donuts until fully covered. Immediately sprinkle the chopped pecans on top of the glaze on each donut. Let the glaze set, about 10 minutes. Serve while still warm, for best flavor.
