1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a cup, mix flax meal with warm water & set aside.
2. In a bowl, mix rice flour, sorghum flour, tapioca starch, arrowroot starch, baking powder, baking soda, salt & xanathan gum.
3. Cream nondairy butter & maple sugar in a stand mixer for 2-3 minutes, or until smooth.
4. Add flax meal "gel" (at this point the flax & water should be a gelatinous goo) to the maple/butter mixture and blend well. Add maple extract.
5. Alternately add the flour mixture with the nondairy milk. Once everything has been added, scrape sides of the mixer bowl, and beat on medium for about a minute.
6. Spoon all of this batter into a Ziploc bag. Spray your donut pan (I use this one I got on Amazon: with nonstick spray.
7. Snip off the end of your Ziploc bag with scissors and squeeze batter into donut pan, filling each ring to the top.
8. Bake 15-17 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and let sit in pan for a minute or two before taking donuts out of the pan. Let donuts cool on a wire rack until they're still warm but able to be handled without burning yourself.
9. In another bowl, whisk the powdered sugar, maple syrup, nondairy milk and maple extract until smooth.
10. Take a donut and dip the top half into the glaze and place on wire rack to set. If you want sprinkles, immediately dip glaze top into a plate full of sprinkles. Repeat until all donuts are glazed.
11. Serve warm and enjoy!
