Gluten-Free Blueberry Vanilla Waffles

Gluten-Free Low Glycemic Blueberry Donuts

The best manna for your body

I put off making gluten-free donuts as long as possible. I was looking through online recipes for months and finally found what I was looking for. This recipe was adapted from Gluten-free on a Shoestring. Her recipe used vanilla bean and shortening, both of which I highly recommend; however, I made it work using butter and Watkins Madagascar Vanilla extract. I added blueberries as a drizzle and let the vanilla cake donuts sit in the blueberry compote for about 30 minutes. It made a huge difference. I used honey instead of sugar both for the drizzle and in the recipe. Next time, I will use coconut sugar and probably break down and use shortening or maybe half coconut oil and half shortening. I'm playing with different ideas to get the biggest taste with the least negative health impact. These were fun to make in Wilton brand donut pans and baking them is obviously better than frying; although I plan to try out a fried glazed donut soon. They were a big hit with the kids, and they don't eat bland or boring stuff, so I felt it was safe to post. 

1 1/2 cups gluten-free bisquick
1/2 tsp star anise or nutmeg
3/4 cup honey or coconut sugar
1 stick unsalted butter or 1 cup shortening or lard
2 eggs
3/4 sour cream or plain yogurt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or one vanilla bean

1/4 cup honey or coconut sugar
1/4 cup blueberries. Add 2 tsp water if not frozen

Mix the wet ingredients in a bowl separate from the dry. Once dry ingredients are combined, make a well in the midst and pour in the wet ingredients. If the batter is especially thick, add milk or heavy cream a tbsp at a time until the batter thins a bit. Fill donut pan wells nearly to the top. Clean batter off the center if any spills; however, this can be removed cleanly once they are baked. Bake on 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes. Allow to cool before you remove from pan or drizzle with compote. Let the donuts sit in the blueberry goodness for up to an hour before serving.
