Clean Pumpkin Donuts with Maple Pecan Frosting


My mother-in-law bought me a donut pan for Christmas this year.  As soon as I got home I couldn’t wait to start experimenting with clean donut recipes.  Since I had a can of pumpkin in the cupboard, I decided to try a pumpkin donut recipe.  These turned out better than I expected and are delicious!!  I am sure these will satisfy your donut cravings!  These taste amazing warm right out of the oven or microwaved for 10 seconds. These donuts are sugar free, dairy free and can be made gluten free!  Enjoy!


2 Cups whole wheat flour (or can substitute with gluten free flour)

3 TSP baking soda

1/4 TSP salt

2 TSP pumpkin pie spice

1 TSP vanilla

3 Large eggs

1/4 Cup honey

3/4 Cup date butter

3/4 Cup pumpkin puree

2 TBSP coconut oil

Maple Pecan Frosting:

1 Cup Pecans

1/4 Cup pure maple syrup

2 TBSP coconut oil

Blend all ingredients together on high in a blender until smooth.


Heat oven to 350F.  In a large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients.  In a seperate bowl combine all wet ingreidnets and mix until slightly foamy.  Add the wet and dry ingredients and mix well. Pour batter into greased donut pan and bake for 8-10 minutes.  (If using the small pans)
