As soon as cooler temps and fall rolls in, it's always time for pumpkin recipes! I bought a donut pan a few months back, and finally decided to use it with this amazing pumpkin donut recipe!

These are too easy to make, and are a little healthier for you than the fried version! You could make them ahead of time, and eat them for breakfast during the week. Not saying they will last that long, since they are so good, but it's the thought that counts! They go perfect with a huge mug of chai tea!

Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts (click here to print recipe)
12 donuts

What you need:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1- 15 ounce canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a donut pan. 

In a bowl, mix together the oil, eggs, sugar, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, salt and baking powder until well combined. Stir in the flour until combined and smooth. 

Scoop half the batter into a gallon ziploc bag, seal and snip off the corner. Pipe the batter into each donut section, and fill 3/4 full. Bake for 18 minutes, remove from pan and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Repeat with remaining batter. Store in a sealed container once cooled.
