Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups (120 g) almond flour⁠⠀
  • 1 cup (140 g) cassava flour ⁠⠀
  • 1¼ tsp baking soda⁠⠀
  • ¼ tsp salt⁠⠀
  • ¾ cup + 2 Tbsp (210 g) coconut sugar (can substitute any granulated sugar)⁠⠀
  • 1 egg⁠⠀
  • ½ cup (120 ml) coconut butter, liquid but not hot⁠⠀
  • ½ cup (120 ml) canned pureed pumpkin⁠⠀
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract⁠⠀
  • See topping instructions below recipe
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg F (175 C) and lightly grease a donut pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine almond flour, cassava flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk or stir ingredients to mix thoroughly.⁠⠀
  2. Add coconut sugar, egg, coconut butter, pumpkin, and vanilla extract to dry ingredients. Mix well.⁠⠀
  3. Spoon batter into the donut pan, filling each cup about ¾ of the way.⁠⠀
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of a donut ring comes out clean. ⁠⠀
  5. When the donuts have cooled completely, sugar or frost and enjoy!⁠
Notes
Substituting liquid sugar for the granulated sugar is not recommended as it changes the texture of the donuts.

The Best Gluten Free Pumpkin Donuts Toppings:

Spiced Sugar

Mix 1/2 cup coconut sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg well in a bowl.

Using a silicon brush, brush the donut tops with liquid coconut oil and submerge in spiced sugar. We only sugar one side, though you could do both!⁠

Sprinkles

Using a silicon brush, brush the donut tops with liquid coconut oil.

Drop sprinkles onto the donuts or submerge for heavily sprinkled donuts.⁠

Note: You can make an easy glaze by mixing water or plant-based milk with confectioner’s sugar, though most have corn starch (which we are avoiding).⁠

Whipped Coconut Cream

Whisk 1 cup coconut cream with 2 tsp maple syrup. Smother, drizzle or dip!⁠

    These look absolutely marvellous, Jamie! I love using my donut pan – there’s just something about that round donut shape that makes everything taste better, don’t you think? I haven’t used cassava flour before – very excited to give this a go! Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you for your kind words Katerina! I absolutely agree that the perfectly round donut shape makes everything taste better! I’m new to cassava flour but am really liking it as a grain free option. Enjoy these! Pop back over and let us know how it goes ❤️
