Come behind the scenes & discover how we make our world-famous, gluten-free donuts.
We can't tell you how many times we've heard that people cry when they take their first bite out of a Kinnikinnick gluten-free donut. Either people remember them tasing just like they did before they were diagnosed with celiac disease or food allergies, or they're just ecstatic that something gluten-free can taste this good. It's the reason our gluten-free donuts are the most popular in N America.
Available in four flavours, maple, vanilla and cinnamon sugar flavours, watch the process from batter to boxing. We use all non-GMO ingredients and have perfected the recipe over decades to make a light, you-won't-believe-it's-not-the-real-thing donut.
Our donut ingredients are free-from the top 7 allergens, like all our products, free from gluten, dairy, nuts, peanuts, soy, seafood and shellfish. Kinnikinnick donuts do contain whole egg, which gives them a light and airy texture. We've been working on an egg-free version, but it's tough to make a recipe better then the current version, perfected over three decades. That's our condition for changing the recipe. Any new recipe has to be better than old one.
Watch the video as our bakers mix up bulk blends of flour and dry ingredients, mix the batter, extrude the donut circles and deep fry them. The icing on the cake, so to speak, is how we enrobe our gluten-free donuts under a glaze fountain. It's a mesmirising sight to behold, something we could watch all day, so we left the clips long for you to savour the process.
Once the donuts cool on the line, we pack them by hand, wrap them for freshness and box them for transportation, frozen, to destinations across the N American continent. You'll find them in the freezer section of all major grocers and specialty stores and health stores.
Some customers tell us they love the donuts frozen, straight out of the box. Maybe they don't have enough patience, or they like the feel of frozen donuts melting in the mouth. We do recommend heating the donut after thawing for 10 seconds in the microwave or a minute in the oven, as the heat brings out the best flavour and texture.
Whether you find your favourite flavour and stick to it, or switch it up for a change, you'll notice the donuts are a substantial snack that will fill you up until your next meal. As well as satisfy your sweet-tooth craving. A perfect dessert in the kid's or adult's lunch boxes too.
The best is that you can easily turn them into a delightful donut dessert in seconds. Chef Lori put her magic to work and came up with these recipes. Enjoy. There's more donut recipes on our website, and 700+ gluten-free recipes for you to enjoy.
