- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray the wells of mini doughnut pans with nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder, and pumpkin pie spice.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and vinegar. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
- Using a pastry bag, squeeze the batter into the donut ring. Bake for 7-9 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.
- Remove donuts from oven and cool for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Cool completely.
- Make the topping. Combine the chocolate chips and creamer in a small saucepan and heat in 30 second intervals in microwave until melted. Stirring every 30 seconds (this should only take 1 minute). Dip donuts into glaze, decorate with sprinkles and enjoy!
Donut baking pans, you can use mini pan or reg size donut pan
Store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 5 days or in the freezer up to 3 months.
- 2 Large egg whites can be substituted for the whole egg.
- Use sugar free pumpkin spice creamer in place of the half and half.
- Substitute unsweetened applesauce for the pumpkin puree.
- Make donut holes by using a mini muffin tin to bake the donuts and sprinkle with sugar free powdered sugar.
- Substitute ground cinnamon for the pumpkin pie spice.
- A ziploc bag works just as well as a pastry bag for piping the batter into the donut pans. Just fill a gallon sized bag with the batter and snip one corner from the bottom of the bag to pipe the batter.
