Homemade baked chocolate donuts with glaze and sprinkles

Baked Chocolate Pumpkin Donuts

Written by COA Nutrition Team On November 3, 2023

If you’re looking for a fun and easy breakfast for the littles come fall, these Baked Chocolate Pumpkin Donuts are a yummy option. Plus: They’re easy to make and packed with protein and classic pumpkin flavor!


  • 1/2 cup nut butter(such as almond, peanut, or sunflower seed butter)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a standard-size donut pan well.
  2. Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until very smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender if needed.
  3. Fill donut-shaped cups about 3/4 full. Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to make two batches.
  4. Bake 14-16 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. (You can also use a mini muffin pan and bake for the same time.)
  5. Let cool for a few minutes and use a paring knife to carefully coerce the donuts out of the pan. Let cool fully on a wire rack.
  6. Add Icing/toppings after the donuts are fully cooled. (optional)

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
