Healthier baked pumpkin spice donuts… the perfect sweet treat for the fall!
I used to think I was a terrible baker, but according to my husband I’m getting good! This is exciting because I’m always wanting to make reduced guilt baked goods. Typically, I’m not a huge “sweets” person.. I’ll take savory over sweet all day everyday. However, I do crave something small and sweet every now and then especially after dinner.
These little baked donuts are the perfect amount of sweet. I used bob’s red mill oat flour and I really love baking with this stuff! I usually do almond flour, but now I prefer the texture I get with the oat flour. I also used organic coconut sugar, it sweetened them perfectly.
You can eat these plain, or I like to spread a little bit of pumpkin butter or drizzled almond butter!
Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts
- 1 cup oat flour
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice optional but recommended
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup unsweetened nut milk I used cashew milk
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
In a large mixing bowl, combine your oat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
Whisk in your egg, vanilla, and nut milk, then gently stir in your pumpkin puree. Stir everything together, but be sure not to over mix.
Use a pastry bag or make your own using a large plastic bag to pipe the donut mix into a lightly greased donut pan (I greased mine with coconut cooking spray)
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Let the donuts cool for about 5-6 minutes.. enjoy!
