Chocolate Glazed Pumpkin Donuts

Back when I lived off pastry, one of my favorites was donuts. Over the years, as my eating habits and relationship with food changed and evolved, I would still eat a donut every now and then. But when I started working hard to heal my hormones almost two years ago, I had to cut out wheat and sugar which is basically, well, a donut.

Or so I thought.

These delicious baked donuts are grain free, refined sugar free, dairy free, plant based, and completely and utterly DELICIOUS! They have satisfied any and all desire for donuts that I can eat without my whole body getting really angry with me…. I hope you guys love these as much as my family does!
