Low FODMAP chocolate donuts. Oven-baked cake donuts with a delicious chocolate frosting. Also gluten-free and lactose-free.



For the donuts

  • 130 g (1 cup) gluten-free flour
  • 6 tbsp white sugar
  • 25 g (1/4 cup) cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) lactose-free milk
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • A donut tin (I have this one)

For the chocolate glaze

  • 24 tbsp lactose-free milk
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 185 g (1 and 1/2 cup) powdered sugar
  • Sprinkles or other decorations (make sure the ingredients are low FODMAP)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius (350F). Grease the donut tin with some baking spray or butter.
  2. Put the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl and stir together.
  3. Add the milk, egg, vanilla extract and melted butter. Whisk until you have a smooth batter.
  4. Divide the batter over the 6 donut pans. Bake the donuts for 10-12 minutes in the oven. The donuts are done when a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Leave the donuts to cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
  6. For the glaze – put the cacao powder into a bowl. Add two tablespoons of lactose-free milk and stir together. Add the icing sugar little by little and stir until you have a smooth glaze. You might need to add up to two tablespoons more lactose-free milk to get a smooth glaze. Add a little extra milk at a time to avoid your glaze getting too thin.
  7. Dip the donuts into the glaze on by one. Sprinkle the decoration, such as sprinkles on top immediately before the glaze sets. Leave the donuts for a while so the glaze can set.
