Author: Tieghan Gerard (Half baked Harvest) -|- Servings: 12 donuts -|- Total Time: 40 mins
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 canola oil
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- chopped chocolate for topping (optional)
- chopped pecans for topping (optional)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 tsp instant coffee granules (optional)
- 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- a pinch of salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 6 cup doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray or lightly grease with butter.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon. In another mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, brown sugar, canola oil, pumpkin puree, buttermilk and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until the batter is smooth.
3. Scoop the batter into the prepared baking pans until the batter is just below the top. Bake for 20-26 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. The donuts should be gooey in the center. Let cool for 5 minutes, then run a spatula around the edge of the doughnuts and slide them out. Put the doughnuts on a cooling rack for 5-10 minutes before glazing.
4. To make glaze; heat the milk until it begins to steam. Remove from heat and add the instant coffee granules. Let sit for a minute or two before adding the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract. If your glaze is too thin; add a little more powdered sugar, if your glaze is too thick; add a little more milk.
5. Dip the slightly cooled donuts into the glaze, and let the excess drip off. Sprinkle on toppings if desired.

In a small bowl, combine white chocolate chips, vegetable oil and green food colouring. Microwave 30 seconds at a time until fully melted. Transfer to a piping or plastic bag and set aside. Spread chocolate frosting on the brownies, then sprinkle crushed oreos. Pipe green chocolate to look like vines and leaves, then add your pumpkin candies.

Hey there, did you know Chia is a superfood?
welp, now you know... Chia has fibers that can absorb 10-12 times their weight which means your pudding will need no thickeners, if you don't like the flavour of plain OCSP (Look at the title) then try adding something like pumpkin spice, matcha, or cocoa powder.
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 tbsp honey
- Fruit or toppins (Optional)
Place the milk in a sealable glass container, add the honey, chia and any flavouring... Mix mix mix until everything has combined, let sit in the fridge overnight and store for up to a week! This is a great, healthy breakfast alternative!

- 1 egg
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour

5. If you have one, use and ice cream scoop that's about 1 tablespoon to scoop the dough. Form it into a long log shape, and pinch it to make knuckles. Press the blanched almond into the tip of the cookie and use a knife or a toothpick to create wrinkles in the finger.
