Pumpkin flavored everything all day, every day.  It’s one of the best things about fall!  Pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin pies, and now Gluten-Free Mini Pumpkin Donuts! Who doesn’t love pumpkin, donuts and anything mini?  

These donuts are not only cute, delicious and full of fall flavor, they are also gluten-free and dairy-free making them allergy-friendly.  Not to mention they are made with healthier ingredients and are refined sugar free.  No post-donut guilt here!  Plus, we can’t forget about the dark chocolate drizzle on top!  So yum!

Ingredients for Gluten-Free Mini Pumpkin Donuts Cinnamon and pumpkin for Mini Pumpkin Donuts Almond flour with gold measuring spoon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt, and mix well.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs.
  4. Add almond milk, whisked eggs, melted coconut oil, and pumpkin to dry ingredients, and mix well until completely combined.
  5. Grease each mold in mini donut pan with coconut oil.
  6. Add dough to each donut mold.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes.  Oven times may vary.  Do the clean toothpick test to make sure they are done.
  8. While donuts are cooling, melt chocolate chips using a double boiler or a makeshift double boiler (just a small saucepan filled about halfway with water and a heat-safe glass bowl on top.) First, bring water to a boil, turn down to a simmer, place glass bowl on top, add chocolate chips to bowl and stir while chips are melting so it becomes a smooth consistency.
  9. Drizzle melted chocolate on donuts.
  10. Enjoy right away or place in the fridge to harden chocolate.
  11. Store in airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. They taste awesome right out of the fridge too with the hardened chocolate!

Homemade Pumpkin Zucchini Soup So, confession time!  I haven’t had the best of luck with homemade soups in the past.  You’d think it would be easy, but I found it a bit difficult to find that perfect balance between being full of flavor and not overdoing it.  No one likes a bland soup, and no one likes a soup that has way too much seasoning.  Take nutmeg for example!  I’m speaking from experience on that one.  Last year, I tried to make a butternut squash soup and added way too much nutmeg and then tried to cover it up with extra ingredients until I just had to give up on the whole thing.  Well, I decided this winter to get back into the kitchen and create a homemade soup I was proud of.  And here it is!  keep reading

Pumpkin spice chia seed puddingPumpkin, pumpkin everywhere!  As usual this time of year, I’ve been whipping up some delicious pumpkin recipes.  And this recipe just might be my new obsession.  It not only tastes amazing, but it’s one of the healthiest breakfasts you can make, plus it’s perfect if you don’t have a lot of time in the morning.  You make it the night before, which takes maybe 5 minutes, pop it in the fridge overnight, and voila…it’s all ready to enjoy in the am! Chia seeds are the bomb.com.  {Is that saying out?  I have a feeling it is but couldn’t resist!}  Anyway, chia seeds are such an easy way to add in omega 3s, protein, fiber, and antioxidants. This energizing fall breakfast is vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.  keep reading
