To Make the Doughnuts:

  • 1-3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin purée, canned
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted vegan butter
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
For the glaze-
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts, finely chopped (topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a donut pan with vegan butter.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate, large bowl whisk the pumpkin puree, applesauce, brown sugar, vegan butter, and almond milk. Fold the flour mixture into the wet ingredients with a rubber spatula until combined.
  4. Fill the donut pan with batter and bake for 10-12 minutes. When the donuts are finished baking, remove the donuts from the pan and onto a cooling rack.
  5. While the donuts are cooling, mix together the ingredients for the glaze: powdered sugar, maple syrup, almond butter, unsweetened almond milk, and ground cinnamon. Dip the cooled donuts into the glaze and top with toasted walnuts.
