Grandkids, pumpkin donuts and New Years Eve !

Yes, a few of my favorite things, grandkids, pumpkin donuts and New Years Eve.

For a while now I've been wanting to try this recipe for pumpkin donuts.  I even bought a donut pan to make them in ages ago. Well, I finally made them and goodness they are delicious, even without frosting and sprinkles!

Whom to share them with? Grandkids! When? New Years Eve!

     These pumpkin donuts are gluten free using whole grain oat flour.

I used a pastry bag to fill in each individual donut shape.
              Fresh from the oven.

Hmmm, the first batch is missing one and three quarters donuts!
Two and a half dozen later. Coffee and donuts with hubby.

We saved a few for the grandkids!

                            Happy New Year everyone!

How neat. I always thought doughnuts had to be fried. I tried making them once, and mine turned out so heavy. Yours look good, and the pumpkin makes them even healthier.
