These Vegan Pumpkin Spice Donuts are the BEST donuts ever for fall! Light, fluffy and loaded with sweet pumpkin spice flavour.


Units Scale

Cinnamon sugar Coating: 

  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • coconut oil spray (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and spray a donut pan with cooking spray.
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice together in a bowl.
  3. Mix the almond milk and apple cider vinegar together and let sit for 5 minutes to turn into “buttermilk”
  4. Then add the coconut oil, pumpkin puree and vanilla extract to the almond milk mixture and mix until combined.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
  6. Using a piping bag, pipe the dough into the donut moulds filling 3/4 of the way.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. To coat, mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a ziplock bag. While the donuts are still warm, place each donut in the bag and shake so the coating sticks. (You can alternatively let the donuts cool, then spray with an oil spray and coat.


I use this donut pan to make this recipe!

The cinnamon sugar should stick to the donuts if they are still warm. If you let your donuts cool completely, you’ll need to spray them/or dip them in some oil so the coating will stick.

The donut batter should be quite thick if your batter is too try (*can vary if you use a different type of flour) just add a bit more almond milk.

If you don’t have pumpkin spice, you can make your own like this!

If using gluten-free flour, make sure to add 1/2 tsp xantham gum to the mix.

Store leftovers in a sealed container on the counter for 2 days.
