These Pumpkin Spiced Donuts have the perfect blend of warm fall spices and sweet sugary goodness. The best part is that they are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. All you need is some pumpkin spiced coffee and a cozy blanket to go with them.

What You Need:
- Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour – I like to use Bob’s Red Mill or King Arthur
- Pumpkin Puree – this is pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- Vanilla Extract
- Baking Soda
- Coconut Oil
- Coconut Sugar
Let’s Make Donuts!
- The first step is to pre-heat your oven and spray your donut pan – I prefer to use avocado oil spray, but you can use what you have on hand
- Next, we make the batter! The dry ingredients get mixed together in a small bowl and the wet ingredients get mixed together in a large bowl. Then they get folded together until fully combined
- Now we pipe the batter into the donut pan. You can use an actual piping bag for this or add all of your batter into a gallon sized bag and cut the bottom corner to make your own piping bag (this is what I do)
- They bake for 12-14 minutes in the oven or until a toothpick comes out clean. I then let them cool on a rack for 10 minutes before removing from the pan
- For an extra kick of flavor, I like to toss the still warm donuts in a mix of cinnamon and sugar
Donuts are best when enjoyed the day they are baked, but these will last in an airtight container (on the counter) for up to 3 days. But if they last 3 days in your house, your family has much better self-control than mine lol!
