Ingredients

  • FOR THE DONUTS
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup low fat greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted light butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  
  • FOR THE GLAZE
  • 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk

Instructions

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a donut pan with nonstick spray.

    In a large bowl, combine flours, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, baking powder and salt.

    In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, milk, yogurt, butter, eggs and vanilla.

    Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist.

    Scoop batter evenly into donut pan. Place into oven and bake for 7-9 minutes, or until donuts are slightly browned and spring back when touched.

    To make the glaze, combine confectioners’ sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup and milk. Whisk until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk as needed.

    When the donuts are done, cool for 10 minutes and dip the tops into the glaze.

    Allow glaze to set before serving.
