These autumnal pumpkin donuts by Hello Natural offer a vegan and gluten-free dessert option for those that can't enjoy pumpkin or fruit pies throughout the season. These donuts are made from a mix of different gluten-free flours and vegan milk to ensure these treats are healthy and taste great.
The pumpkin donut batter calls for a variety of flours including oat, almond meal and rice. In substitute of an egg, the batter can be bound together with a flax egg made from ground flax and water that is incorporated into the dough. The batter also calls for ingredients such as pumpkin puree, coconut oil, salt, sugar and vegan milk. These donuts are then baked, not fried, in a donut pan and topped with coconut flakes and crushed nuts.
