2 cups gluten-free flour blend

1/2 teaspoon Guar gum or Xantham gum

1/4 cup buttered flavor coconut oil

4 flax eggs (or 4 eggs)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda


1 cup confectioner sugar – sifted

4 Tablespoon maple syrup

1 Tablespoon almond milk

Crumb Topping

3/4 cup walnuts

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350’F. Lightly grease two doughnut pans.


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and guar gum. Set aside
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oil, eggs (flax eggs) sugars, pumpkin, pumpkin spice, salt, baking powder, and baking soda until smooth.
  3. Slowly mix in flour and guar gum until well combined. Do not over mix.
  4. Place mixture into a plastic storage bag or piping bag.
  5. Pipe the doughnut mixture in dough pans. Fill to about 3/4 of the way full.
  6. Place in oven and bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until a toothpick stuck into the doughnut comes out clean.
  7. Remove the doughnuts from the oven and let them cool in the pan for a few minutes. Once cool, transfer to a cooling rack to allow them to cool completely.
  8. While doughnuts are cooling, make glaze and crumb topping.

Crumb Topping

In a food processor, pulse the walnuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon until crumbly.


In a small bowl, combine the sifted* confectioner sugar, syrup, and almond milk. Mix until smooth and transfer to small storage or piping bag.

  1. Once doughnuts are completely cool, pipe glaze back and forth over doughnuts until well coated.
  2. Add crumb topping to each of the doughnuts.

Keep doughnuts in an air-tight container for two to three days.


*It is a good idea to sift the confectioner sugar before making the glaze to avoid lumps
