How to Make ​Vegan Pumpkin Doughnuts With Cinnamon-Sugar Dust!


Topped with cinnamon sugar, these vegan pumpkin doughnuts are super duper fluffy and the perfect way to ring in pumpkin season (aka fall)!

You’ll need:

  • 1 1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup canned or fresh pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil or vegan butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup nut milk

Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • 3 teaspoons coconut oil or vegan butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

Here’s how you make them:

  1. Generously grease a doughnut pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, coconut oil and almond milk.
  4. Gently fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Stir to combine. Do not overmix.
  5. Spoon mixture into prepared doughnut pan and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the doughnuts spring back when lightly pressed. Cool.
  6. For the topping, melt the coconut oil. Set aside. Combine the sifted sugar and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.
  7. Once the doughnuts are cool enough to handle, dip them in the melted coconut oil, then roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  8. Enjoy!
