Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Random-ish story, but one of my favorite things to do in the fall is go apple picking. I love dressing up in my favorite cold day outfit, feeling like my best self, and paying a little too much money to take a bag of apples home. This past weekend I went to a pumpkin patch that featured apple picking and a corn maze and I felt like a little kid again. The smells reminded me of being with my family back home and it brought a smile to my face.

So, that little trip inspired these! I took my donut hole recipe and pumpkin-fied it. I topped it with a coating of cinnamon sugar and it did not disappoint. I hope you guys like it as much as I do! Happy baking and happy fall friends

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour

  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1/4 cup almond milk

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 tbsp cinnamon for the coating

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar for the coating

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil for the coating

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well

  2. In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients and mix well. Be sure to break apart any clumps formed by the pumpkin

  3. Combine the wet and the dry and mix to create a thick dough. This dough should be easy to mold into donuts without having to use a donut tray!

  4. Take handfuls of dough, the size can vary depending on what size you want, roll into balls and poke a hole in the middle. You might have to smooth out some cracks, but they’ll bake perfectly I promise!

  5. Place on a non stick baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool

  6. Dip the top of each one in a bowl with melted coconut oil to cover

  7. In a separate bowl combine the coconut sugar and cinnamon and mix. Dip the donuts with the coconut oil into the mixture to coat the top

  8. Enjoy!
