In a large bowl, whisk together 3 1/2 cups flour, yeast, and salt.
Then, add in the dairy free milk and maple syrup.
Using a spatula, fold until mostly combined. Sprinkle a little more flour if needed to not be sticky and form a ball.
Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl. *If you are oil free, then just make sure sides of bowl are floured, or use a silicone bowl to easily get it out
Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to be about a quarter of an inch thick. Then using a 1" small cutter, cut out your donut hole shapes.
Fold dough back up and then roll out again to cut out more dough until no more exists.
Place each cut out on a baking sheet and then cover and let rise again for 30 minutes.
Heat oil up to 330-350 degree F.
Fry for about 30-45 seconds or until golden brown on each side.
Carefully remove donuts from hot oil and place on a cooling rack with a sheet pan under it to catch the oil or a towel lined plate.
Repeat until all donuts are cooled.
Remove donuts from fryer, let most of the grease drip off and then dip both sides in powdered sugar while still hot.
Serve immediately or let cool to room temperature and store in an air tight container for up to 2 days.
