Pumpkin Spice Baked Donuts (Pet friendly)


I'm basically a little obsessed with baked donuts these days. It's possibly a phase, but I'm pretty sure its a new personality trait. Not mad about it....


I've steered clear of donuts for the most part of my life, due to the fact they are basically a deep fried vessel for mass sugar and dairy consumption, and that they usually leave me feeling full of remorse and with a belly ache. These babies are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. And obviously I needed to make mini ones for Piña because I'm out of control.


I definitely recommend buying a donut pan for these. However, you can use a piping bag or a ziplock bag to pipe circles onto a sheet pan. Because these donuts have such clean ingredients you can definitely share them with your favorite pet!


Ingredients:


For the donuts:


Dry Ingredients

1 1/2 cups gluten free flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/2 cup almond milk

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

2 tbs coconut oil

2 tbs ground flax seed (for flax egg)

1 cup soaked cashews
