Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Donuts

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

There are four days until it’s officially autumn, but we all consider it to be fall right when September starts. And since it was cold out today, I decided it was only right to do some baking that involved pumpkin..while listening to Frank Sinatra of course.

I don’t always bake gluten free, but when I do I make sure to have a good gluten-free flour mix. The one I used for this recipe was Pamela’s Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour which worked great!

I halved the recipe to make a small batch, and I used a pan for six little bundt cakes-that’s why mine look the way they do-but I will write the regular version which will make about 15 regular sized donuts.


2-1/2 cups of Pamela’s Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour

1 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup cane sugar

1-1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp cinnamon (ground)

Just a pinch of nutmeg and ginger

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 beaten eggs

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 can pumpkin puree (14 oz)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease donut pan
  2. In a large bowl, whisk dry ingredients-flour, brown sugar, cane sugar, baking soda, sea salt and the spices
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients-vanilla, beaten eggs, coconut oil, and pumpkin
  4. Mix thoroughly until smooth
  5. Put your batter into the pan, and fill close to the top
  6. Bake for 16-18 minutes. Donuts should be firm but springy
  7. After my donuts cooled I just sprinkled some powdered sugar on them, but if you want to sugar the donuts (with granulated sugar) do it while they are still a little warm after baking. Just put a mixture of cane sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag and shake it around with each donut

There are also some great glaze or frosting recipes out time I want to try cream cheese frosting with these!

This is the original recipe with a homemade flour mix, a little different than how others and I did it:

Definitely try out the recipe, these baked donuts turned out so delicious. Mine are already close to gone! Since I love fall baking, check in for more pumpkin-related treat recipes which I’m so excited to try. Thanks for reading!
