  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour I like Pillsbury gluten-free
  • 1/2 tsp  xanthan gum leave out if your flour already has it
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon  pure vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons  pure maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Spray full sized donut pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl combine the sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, canned pumpkin and pure vanilla extract. Mix until fully combined.
  • Add gluten-free flour, xanthan gum (leave out if your flour already has it), salt, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and baking powder and mix until fully combined.
  • The batter will be thick and sticky.
  • Add batter to a large plastic storage bag (or piping bag). I like to take a tall cup and put the bag inside of the cup so it’s easier to fill the bag with the batter. Close the seal of the bag.
  • Cut the tip off of the bag.
  • Squeeze the bag carefully filling the donut pan.
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes. They will be golden brown and set.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the ingredients for the glaze.
  • Dip each warm donut into the glaze and place on a plate or wire rack.
  • Serve warm.
  • Enjoy!


My trick for making donuts easy is to put the batter into a large plastic storage bag, then snip the end off and use it to pipe the batter into my donut pan.
I like Pillsbury gluten-free flourNot all gluten-free flours are created equal. You may experience different baking results depending on the gluten-free flour blend you choose.
Store in an air-tight container.
