Gluten Free Pumpkin Donuts

One of my favorite things about the fall season is all things pumpkin! I love trying new recipes to add to my pumpkin favorites and this gluten free pumpkin donuts recipe is so fast & easy to put together. You can make these baked Pumpkin donuts in about 30 minutes or less. Surprise your kids with a delicious fall breakfast or maybe an after-school snack . They also are an easy recipe to throw together before a fall gathering or brunch. I love the light glaze, too, for a bit of extra sweetness.

These gluten free pumpkin donuts would also taste great using homemade pumpkin puree if you enjoy making your own puree. We have a recipe on how to make pumpkin puree in 5 easy steps.
