I’m so excited to finally share these! I made these bad boys as a little Thanksgiving treat and they were just great. I just recently got a donut pan and now I’m obsessed. Donuts are the easiest treat to make, quick and simple and easy for you to customize to whatever flavour you’re looking for. So obviously since it’s what I like to call Pumpkin SZN I have here, HEALTHY-ish Pumpkin Spice Donuts with a Cinnamon Glaze.
note: since these donuts are made with buckwheat flour they are a bit more dry – feel free to alternate the flour to regular all purpose flour and the coconut sugar to plain sugar for that fluffy “it’s the holidays so who cares” donuts.
Pumpkin Spice Donuts with a Cinnamon Glaze
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (can be subbed for cinnamon, cloves & nutmeg)
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup cashew milk (can sub to any nut milk)
2 tbsp unsalted butter (liquid state – melted, not hot)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp pure maple syrup (good to make it a bit sticky, optional)
1 tbsp cashew milk (can sub to any nut milk) – use more if needed
- Preheat that oven to 350 degrees F. Spray your donut pan with non stick cooking spray or just wipe it down with a paper towel with a bit of oil.
- In your mixing bowl whisk: flour, baking powder, pumpkin spice, nutmeg and salt.
- In a separate bowl: mix pumpkin puree, brown sugar, milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract until all combined. Combine both the wet and dry ingredients.
- Spoon in your batter to fill your donut pan. Bake it up for 10-12 min at 350 F OR.. until you don’t feel them bounce back.
- Let them cool in the pan for 5 mins before taking them out – let those babies cool.
For the glaze..
- While those guys are cooking, mix all your glaze ingredients until well combined. If it’s a lil too thick add in a bit more nut milk.
- Dip your donuts in the glaze once they’ve cooled and let them sit so the glaze hardens for about 10-15 minutes.
Voila. Pumpkin Spice never dies.
