For Pumpkin Donuts:

  • 1 cup or 140g whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup 70g all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup or 235g pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup or 100g erythritol (stevia or another natural sweetener)
  • 1/4 cup or 40g light vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup or 85g milk (dairy or non-dairy)

For Maple Fudge Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup or 65g maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp. or 30g erythritol
  • 1 Tbsp. 12g butter
  • 1/4 cup or~50g milk (more or less, depends on desired thickness)


To Make Pumpkin Donuts:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a donut pan with nonstick spray if using a metal pan (I used silicone donut molds, so they don’t need to be greased).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and ground cinnamon.
  • In another large bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree, eggs, erythritol (or any sweetener), oil, and milk, until well combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and stir until just combined.
  • Transfer the dough to a piping bag with a round piping tip or a Ziploc bag with one corner cut off. Pipe the batter evenly into the 12 wells of a donut pan. (You can also spoon the batter into each donut cup).
  • Bake the donuts for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean. Cool the donuts on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before glazing them.

To Make Maple Fudge Glaze:

  • Combine the maple syrup, erythritol, butter, and milk in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer on medium heat. Allow simmering for about 3-5 minutes until it's slightly thick. Remove from the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes to thicken. (If it’s too thick, add 2 tablespoons of milk and heat again until just start simmering).
  • Dip the tops of the donuts into the warm glaze. Top with chopped walnuts if desired. Enjoy!
  • Store the pumpkin donuts in an airtight container for up to 2 days at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
