Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener
  • 1/4 cup pastured butter melted

Cinnamon and "Sugar" Topping

  • 2 tablespoons pastured butter melted
  • 1/4 cup ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Buttercream

  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener powdered
  • 1-3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375º F.
  • Heavily grease 2 6-cavity donut pans. Be sure to grease the top of the pan and in the center of each cavity, so the donuts don't stick as they rise out of the tops.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, add the almond flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt. Mix to combine.
  • In a larger mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Then, add the pumpkin puree, melted butter, ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener, and vanilla. Whisk to combine well.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients, and fold them in until no dry ingredients remain.
  • Add the batter to a piping bag, or cut the tip from a large storage bag, and pipe the batter into the prepared donut pans.
  • Bake the donuts for 15 minutes. Allow to fully cool before trying to take the donuts out of the pan.
  • Use a butter knife to loosen the donuts from the pan, and pry them out gently.
  • Decorate as desired. Store donuts refrigerated in an air tight container for up to a week or frozen for up to 3 months.

Cinnamon and Sugar Topping

  • In a small bowl or on a plate, mix together ZenSweet and cinnamon.
  • Dip each donut into the butter and then into the sweet cinnamon mixture.

Buttercream Topping

  • Add the cream cheese to a large bowl, and use a hand mixer or a stand mixer to whip the cream cheese until it's light and fluffy.
  • Add the powdered ZenSweet and heavy whipping cream, and continue to process until it's a light and fluffy mixture. Add additional heavy whipping cream until desired texture is reached.
  • Dip or spread the topping onto each donut.

Notes

*Nutrition facts to not include optional toppings.
#1: Do not overbake these! Gluten free and sugar free baked goods will dry out faster than your typical baking ingredients. Be sure to watch these carefully, as your oven may cook them faster.
#2: Experiment with the flavors! Add mini chocolate chips, or try dipping them in crushed pecans after the buttercream topping. The sky is the limit here!
#3 Use ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener for a healthier, sugar free baked donut, that tastes like the real thing! Our Monk Fruit Sweetener measures cup-for-cup like sugar, and doesn't have an aftertaste. It tastes like sugar! Kids and adults agree it's the best option for healthier baking.
