Baked Gluten-free Chocolate Mint Doughnuts from The Baking Beauties


I’m not really one to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day. I have no Irish background. We never celebrated as kids. The extent of our ‘celebration’ is wearing green, and eating something green. Pretty simple. :) So, this past week when I looked at the calendar and saw that it was St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, I knew I had to make something green to go with the occasion. I decided to make some baked Gluten Free Chocolate Mint Doughnuts. My kids loved them, and apparently the kids in their class were quite envious come lunch time. Nearly started a brawl – so I guess they are kind of Irish, huh? 😉

    These look amazing and I love the green mint frosting. I’ve never had a mint doughnut but sounds delicious. I bought myself a donut pan for the sole purpose of making gluten free dounuts and have only used it once. I will have to dust it off and give this a go!

    After my brother showed up with Chocolate Cake Donuts from Krispy Kreme, I had a hanckering for these donuts! I found them on your site and figured I’d give them a try. I decided to use just a simple glaze instead of the mint (however I may try that next time). They were DELISH!!! I had to leave the house so I wouldn’t eat all 6 at once! Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe. It was super easy and delicious.
