Healthy Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes


These no bake healthy pumpkin spice donut holes are packed full of pumpkin spice flavor and covered in a coconut maple glaze. Vegan, gluten-free and absolutely delicious.

A few weeks ago I posted these no bake blueberry muffin donut holes. Everyone LOVED them and I quickly decided a fall version needed to happen ASAP. I thought about making an apple pie version, but ultimately went the pumpkin spice route. The pumpkin lover in me couldn’t resist.

A little experimenting happened in the kitchen and before I knew it I was packing up a container of these pumpkin spice donut holes as a road-trip snack for our drive to New York.

It’s funny because I’ve found that I do my best recipe testing right before traveling. I know I should be packing my suitcase with clothes and such, but instead I always find myself in the kitchen. I’ll be frantically cooking and baking (usually trying to use up perishable items I don’t want to go to waste), packing snacks OR cleaning the kitchen because I hate leaving a messy kitchen. The messy kitchen thing is a post for another day, but in a nut shell I literally can’t leave the house if there are dishes in the sink. It’s a thing!

Anyhow, this whole cooking and packing snacks before a trip totally delays my packing of the things I actually need so I end up throwing a bunch of clothes in my suitcase at the last minute. I may arrive to my travel destination without matching outfits, but at least I know that me and everyone I’m traveling with will have plenty of healthy snacks. 😉
