This Easy Baked Pumpkin Donuts Recipe comes together with just 10 ingredients in about 30 minutes! It's dairy-free, egg-free, and vegan.
It's pumpkin spice season, baby! I know it's still hot and humid in Texas, but I'm ready for all the fall flavors!
Ever since I got my donut pan, I've been baking them nonstop. I love to make a batch at the beginning of the week and enjoy them for a breakfast treat or little afternoon snack.
Cinnamon Sugar Baked Pumpkin Donuts
Feel free to leave your baked donuts bare, top them with cinnamon sugar like I did, or make a fun festive glaze!
To make these donuts, start by whisking together flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling!), melted vegan-friendly butter or coconut oil, dairy-free milk, and apple cider vinegar.
From there, simply mix everything together, pipe into donut pan, and bake at 350F for about 15 minutes. Let cool then decorate and enjoy!
For the cinnamon sugar coating, whisk together granulated sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl. Brush the tops of each donut with melted butter and dip into the cinnamon sugar.
