These Baked Pumpkin Donuts are FULLY vegan and require just a handful of simple ingredients. They can be made ALL in one bowl and are seriously the most delicious fall treat!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour (can also use pastry flour or something similar), I have not tried these with a gluten free flour except a 1-1 flour substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree

For the topping:

  • 1/2 cup of sugar (I use cane sugar)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • Cooking spray


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 6 cavity donut pan.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Stir in the milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree. Stir until well combined.
  4. Evenly divide the batter into the donut pan. You can spoon it in and shake the pan a bit to level it out OR you can pour the batter into a baggie, cut one corner, and then pipe the batter into the donut pan.
  5. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the donuts comes out clean. Mine took right at 10 minutes.
  6. While the donuts cool, make the sugar topping. In a shallow bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon/ pumpkin pie spice.
  7. Once donuts have cooled a bit, lightly spray with cooking spray and then toss them into the cinnamon sugar until fully coated. ENJOY!
