  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins

Yield: 6 donuts 1x




  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon organic pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon liquid coconut oil or avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • You can add in pumpkin pie spice too if you want!

Cinnamon sugar coating:

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, melted or liquid coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a donut tray with coconut oil
  2. Mix together the pumpkin puree, milk, oil and vanilla until smooth
  3. Add in the flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon and mix until smooth and creamy with no clumps
  4. Spoon batter into donut pans then bake in oven for 10-12 minutes or until ready (I stick a toothpick in!)
  5. Allow the donuts to cool for a few then gently remove (I usually quickly flip the donut tray upside down and gently tap to get them out)
  6. Add the melted butter or oil into a shallow bowl then mix the sugar and cinnamon in another shallow bowl
  7. Dip each donut in oil/butter then sugar then enjoy!
