Baked Cinnamon Eggnog Donut Holes: such a fun holiday treat! You’ll love the rich eggnog and warm cinnamon. Plus they’re whole grain and gluten-free!
Hey good morning!
Can you believe how close we are getting to Christmas?? Eep! I really need to get a move on.
I still haven’t done much shopping at all yet, and the decorating has been pretty minimal. But I’ve got the holiday baking covered, that’s for sure!
And today I’m adding one more fabulous recipe to that category. Baked cinnamon eggnog donut holes!
I think these would be absolutely perfect for a Christmas or New Year’s breakfast or brunch. They’re so moist and flavorful!
The rich taste of eggnog really comes through, and they’re spiked with tons of warm cinnamon. Best of all, they’re completely gluten-free.
And they’re also 100% whole grain, and are free of all gums and fillers. And non-GMO!
I don’t usually do much with baking mixes, but Among Friends is just so great. I love that they’re all natural. And when it comes to gluten-free, a lot of times I think a mix can be best. Otherwise, you’re having to buy so many different flours, starches and add-ins! Among Friends® Francie’s™ Make It Your Own Cinnamon Sugar Muffin Mix is the perfect solution.
Just replace the buttermilk with eggnog, for an extra-rich flavor that’s perfect for the holidays. It can be baked as muffins, donuts, or donut holes (like you see here), depending upon the type of pan you use. I loved the pop-able mini size, especially when drenched with a sweet eggnog glaze!

Yield: about 4 dozen baked donut holes
For the baked donut holes:
- 1 bag Among Friends® Francie's™ Make It Your Own Cinnamon Sugar Muffin Mix

To make the baked donut holes:

Turn the oven temperature down to 350 degrees F, and continue to bake for another 6 to 10 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the thickest part of the muffin comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
- Cool completely, then coat with eggnog glaze.
