Equipment

  • Mixing Bowls
  • Donut Pan
  • Oven
  • Cooling Rack

Ingredients
  

Donut:
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
Topping:
  • 2.5 tbsp low fat cream cheese
  • 1.5 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp maple extract

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Combine flour, salt, baking powder, pumpkin spice, baking soda, sugar and whisk together to combine
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, Greek yogurt, oil, almond milk, pumpkin puree, and vanilla until mixture is smooth
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir to combine, until you have a uniform mixture with a consistency of cake batter
  • Spray your donut pan with cooking spray and put roughly 2 tbsp of batter into each. It doesn't need to be filled to the top, as these will rise
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, until they’ve risen a bit and a toothpick comes out clean. They should be light and springy.
  • Allow donuts to cool to room temp on a cooling rack
  • Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and maple extract until smooth.
  • Top each donut with roughly 1 tsp of topping and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice. Enjoy!
