This baked pumpkin donuts recipe is a healthy snack or dessert featuring the flavors of fall. So delicious, and the texture is perfect!

Pumpkins are one of my favorite things about fall. I don’t mean the decorations, but the food.

There’s something special about the flavor and texture of baked goods made with pumpkin puree. It’s nearly impossible to make these treats too dry with the moisture from the pumpkin. And the spice blend of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg is such a comfort food flavor.

These baked pumpkin donuts are a delicious fall dessert that couldn’t be easier to make. They’re so flavorful and rich that nobody will realize they’re eating something healthy. I use a donut pan that bakes six at a time, so it takes two shifts in the oven to make a dozen donuts. The gluten-free flour can be replaced by wheat flour, and the coconut milk and coconut oil can be replaced by regular milk and butter if you prefer.

Serve these donuts for dessert, breakfast, or snack time. Everyone will love this classic treat.

And try my chocolate potato donuts for another delicious gluten-free treat.
