Doughnut Holes

  • 1 1/4 Cup Gluten-Free or Regular All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Milk


  • 4 Tbsp Melted Salted Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon


  • Using the egg mold (See post for picture), add a little oil to each of the half spheres and set aside. This can be done with Grapeseed Oil Spray as well.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Add in the pumpkin puree and milk, mix well.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well blended. This is done most efficiently with a dough hook on a stand mixer or a spatula to avoid overmixing.
  • Scoop the batter into the half-sphere mold and fill 2/3 of the way to the top.
  • Place the mold into the air fryer or the Ninja Foodi.
  • Since this is done in batches, keep the remaining dough cool by placing it in the fridge in between cooking times.
  • Bake at 320*F for 10-12 minutes or until they are nice and golden. If you insert a toothpick in the middle it should come out clean when ready.
  • Once baked remove from the mold and place them on the cooling rack.
  • Repeat these steps for the remaining dough.
  • While these are cooking, prepare the coating.
  • In a small bowl combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave and let it cool.
  • Once the doughnut holes are cool enough to handle, roll them in the butter and then into the cinnamon and sugar to coat.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Keep your doughnut holes in an airtight container for 2 days on the counter or 4-5 days in the fridge.
These are great as a quick grab-and-go breakfast with your favorite milk or coffee!
