|Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts|
Yes, I am a basic fall....GIRL. And I'm not ashamed.
Gimme all the pumpkin spice! I'm down to throw pumpkin puree & warming spices into just about anything, and I'll tell you what—it goes will just about anything! In the past, I've made a PS Smoothie Bowl, PS Ice Cream, a PS Cheesecake and a PS Loaf, all with great success!
But now I'm warmed up, y'all. It's four years into this crazy holistic chef thing, and I'm ready for, arguably, the MOST basic Pumpkin Spice recipe ever (except the latte, since I don't drink coffee)...
PUMPKIN SPICE DONUTS
To create these light, tender baked beauties, I combined my best-of gluten-free healthy basic experiences. It took me FOUR different trials, but I am teary-happy to announce that I think I finally nailed it. I'll let y'all be the real judges!
If you are a cake donut lover like me, these pumpkin spice babies will fulfill all of your donut dreams. They are, dare I say it, moist and rich, but not heavy or grainy. With just the right amount of cinnamon and nutmeg, they scream for a cup of milky chai tea or coffee. As I often do, I use a coconut butter mixture to create a lovely glaze that truly takes them over the top!
NOTE: The death of these donuts is overbaking them. They may seem underdone when you pull them out, but they will continue to firm up. That said, these are not the sturdiest donuts, so handle them gently!
