It’s not even November 1st and I busted out the pumpkin puree. These are awesome and the kiddos loved em.

Dairy Free Baked Pumpkin Donuts With Maple Cinnamon Glaze

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 12 mins
Total Time 27 mins
Course Breakfast
Servings 12 donuts


For the Donuts

  • 2 cups flour (I used bread flour)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cups light brown sugar (lightly packed)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 4 tsp dairy free butter, melted / cooled (I use Earth Balance)

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond milk (or however much you need)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray your donut pans with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and salt.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, eggs, almond milk, and butter. Make sure you get all the brown sugar clumps broken up.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and, using a spatula, mix just until incorporated - don't over mix.
  • Spoon the batter into your donut tray. You could also use a piping bag or do it like me and cut a slit in a corner of a Ziploc...
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes (depending on your oven).
  • Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. I usually put tin foil under wire rack as it makes it much quicker to clean up.
  • While the donuts are cooling, whisk the glaze ingredients together until it's the right consistency. Add a little more almond milk if it's too thick.
  • Dip the tops of your donuts into the glaze (I submerge about 1/2 way). Don't worry about the excess, you want that goodness so it will run down the sides of your donuts when you move it back to the wire rack.
  • Once the glaze hardens I do one more pass with the left over glaze. Using a small spoon I dribble lines across the tops of the donuts.
  • Eat 'em while they're hot!
