With fall in full effect, we can welcome all things pumpkin back in our lives! PSL’s, pumpkin pizza, pumpkin flavored bagels and cookies, pumpkin pie, and even pumpkin donuts. We’re talking super moist vegan pumpkin donuts.
Soft, pillowy bites of pure pumpkin delight. All wrapped up in a simple cinnamon sugar coating. Plus, they are vegan and baked, rather than deep-fried. Which means that you can whip them up in a flash (think thirty minutes tops!).

If vegan isn’t your thing, however, you can still go ahead and whip these up. Switch the chia eggs for large eggs, and brush the doughnuts with melted butter rather than coconut oil. Having said that, we still prefer the doughnuts themselves to be made with a vegetable oil (think coconut or grape seed).
And while we love the cinnamon sugar coating, feel free to play with your chocolate here. So either incorporate chocolate chips into the batter or do a chocolate glaze. Melt a dark vegan chocolate bar with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Dip your doughnuts once cool, allowing them to dry completely before digging in. Although who are we kidding, feel free indulge in one (or two!) while they are still slightly warm.
Also, if you don’t have a donut pan at hand, don’t sweat it. Simply use a muffin pan instead and bake them for 20-23 minutes. Equally delicious, you’ll just have to call them pumpkin muffins instead!
Easy and fuzz free. Just make sure you do not over-mix the batter, as it will result in tough doughnuts. You see, when you over-mix you will develop more gluten than necessary, and your donuts will come out tough rather than pillowy-soft. So make sure to mix the batter until just incorporated.
So add a glass of nut milk, Netflix, a blanket, and you’ve got yourself an ideal fall afternoon at hand.
