I shared on social media how delicious these amazing donut holes are! They bring the heavens down for a moment as you indulge is this amazing ball of sugary goodness. Do I have your attention yet?

But, remember these may be gluten free, BUT they are not sugar free. They are definitely a treat to say the least. These made an amazing treat for all of us. Pair this with an amazing cup of coffee and volia instant breakfast or afternoon snack goodness.

  • Alternatively, you could substitute pumpkin pie spice for these spices. If substituting, I suggest using 1/2 tsp cinnamon + 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice. But, I do not recommend this, try and stick with the separate spice ingredients. 
  • Gluten Free Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donut HolesAlthough still good they are not the best left-over. They are definitely best if eaten right after you bake them.
