How do I make these One Point Pumpkin Cinnamon and Sugar Donuts?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. Set aside.

Add the non fat plain Greek yogurt or unsweetened applesauce, pumpkin puree, egg, white or brown sugar substitute, vanilla, water, and melted butter or 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce.

Whisk until well combined.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

(DO NOT over mix-it is critical that you DO NOT over mix the batter once you combine the wet and dry ingredients.  

The texture of the donuts will be completely off if over mixed.)

Be sure to hand mix the batter using a whisk or silicon mixing spoon until the flour streaks disappear.

It’s okay if your batter is lumpy — in fact, you want it to be slightly lumpy.

Spray two (6 cavity) donut pans with nonstick cooking spray. 

Place donut batter into a ziplock bag. Seal bag making sure all the air is released. Cut one corner off of the bag to create a piping bag.

Fill prepared donut pan 1/2 way with batter using the piping bag. (I use a donut pan to make baked donuts.)

Bake for 10-13 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes.

What Do I use for the Cinnamon Sugar Topping?

For the topping you can use either 1/4 cup granulated sugar substitute or 1/4 cup regular white granulated sugar. Using a sugar substitute for the sugar topping can create a mouth-cooling effect vs. using regular sugar.  If you are sensitive to that cooling effect, you can swap out the sugar substitute for the topping with 1/4 cup regular sugar which would increase the point value to 2 points per donut)

Meanwhile, make the sugar topping: In a medium bowl mix together the white sugar substitute and cinnamon.

Once they have cooled a bit, spray both sides of donuts with can’t believe it’s not butter spray and then dust both sides of donut with sugar mixture.

Store leftover donuts in an airtight ziplock bag in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Author Notes:

  • Be sure to hand mix the batter using a whisk or silicon mixing spoon until the flour streaks disappear. It’s okay if your batter is lumpy — in fact, you want it to be slightly lumpy.
  • Not all brown sugar substitutes are zero points.  The Lakanto Monkfruit has a 1:1 ratio to sugar. Another zero point brown sugar substitute that I have used is Sukrin Gold which can be found at most Whole Food or Sprouts or on Amazon. If you use Sukrin Gold you will want to use the conversion chart on back of the package for the conversion amount that it shows for regular sugar.

I love these so much and so do my kids! I probably make these twice every week. I use unsweetened applesauce, all purpose flour, and I skip the sugar topping altogether. Tonight I made them into mini muffins instead of donuts and it made 24 total. Thanks for a great recipe!
