Vegan Pumpkin Donuts with SunButter Maple Frosting

  • Author: Flora & Vino
  • Total Time: 36 minute
  • Yield: 12 donuts


Healthy pumpkin donuts made with almond flour and pumpkin purée naturally sweetened with maple syrup. Frost with an easy SunButter maple frosting!



  • 2 flax eggs (2 TBSP ground flaxseed + 6 TBSP filtered water)
  • 1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour 
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup unrefined coconut sugar
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/4 cup No-Sugar-Added SunButter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare two donut pans.
  2. Prepare your flax eggs in a large bowl and allow to sit for a few minutes to gel. Next, add the maple syrup, coconut sugar, pumpkin purée, SunButter, and almond milk and whisk to combine.
  3. Sift in the all purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice and whisk to combine until smooth. The batter should be slightly stiff.
  4. Spray the donut pans with coconut oil spray or lightly grease with coconut oil. Add batter to fill each donut, spreading with a spatula to form an even layer. Bake donuts for 15 minutes, until firm to the touch.
  5. While the donuts are baking, prepare your SunButter Maple frosting. Add the SunButter, almond flour, and maple syrup to a mixing bowl and whisk until thick and creamy.
  6. When the donuts are done, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15-20 minutes until icing. Remove the donuts from the pan, transfer to a wire cooling rack, and “frost” with SunButter Maple frosting.
  7. Store leftover donuts in the fridge for 5-7 days . Store leftover frosting in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.


If avoiding nuts, substitute the almond flour with gluten-free oat flour or more all purpose baking flour instead.
