Baked Pumpkin Donut Holes can be made in a donut hole pan or a mini muffin tin. They are cute, delicious, and absolutely addicting – plus they are simple to make!
Pumpkin in February? You must think I’m crazy. But why must pumpkin recipes only be posted in October and November? Pumpkin is so delicious!! I bake with it year round and I loved these pumpkin donut holes so much that I just had to share them with you! So yes, pumpkin in February is happening and I couldn’t be happier!
By the way, have you heard of Yummly? I just recently started becoming a publisher on Yummly and it is my new favorite social media site!

TheBetterHalf and I studied abroad in Athens (we have been together since we were freshman at Notre Dame!) and for our spring break we went to Rome. We needed a break one day and so we found the cutest little coffee shop to have a drink and a snack. We thought it was so quaint and local, and liked it so much that we returned the next day. Fast forward to the following summer when I lived in NYC for an internship. I was walking around one day when I spotted a “quaint and local” coffee shop with the same name as the one in Rome…I had no idea that Le Pain Quotidien was actually a worldwide chain! So much for our unique find in Rome!! I guess the French name should have tipped me off. We actually tried to find the same Le Pain when we went back to Rome 6 years later, but it closed.
Anyway, back to pumpkin donut holes. These little guys are seriously addicting. Consider this your warning. I’m not kidding – I actually couldn’t stop eating them. I had to make a second batch the same day as the first because I loved these so much!! I made these in my Donut Hole pan but if you don’t have one, you can also use a mini muffin tin. It works really well!
The warm pumpkin donut holes are tossed in cinnamon sugar which creates a delicious coating and makes these really look like donut holes! They are super easy to whip up, and you can easily double the recipe to feed a crowd. These are one of my favorite pumpkin recipes yet!
If you just can’t do pumpkin in February, that’s ok – I still have some great mini muffin tin recipes for you!
