These Pumpkin Einkorn Donuts will warm you up on a cool fall day and the smells of fall will fill your home. Every year a trip to the pumpkin farm is a fall tradition in our family. We load up the pumpkins and gourds. Our truck is packed full , some to carve, some to just add to our fall décor and LOTS to roast and preserve. I hope someday we have enough room on our little homestead to grow our own.

When we started on our whole food journey , grains and flour were one of our first big changes, We came across einkorn flour and has LOVED it ever since.
Einkorn is an ancient grain and has many healthy benefits. Einkorn has less gluten than traditional whole wheat and has far more nutrition. Its a good source of protein, fiber, B vitamins and many antioxidants. When traditional wheat is processed , many nutrients are stripped out and refined. Einkorn has been found to be a more nutritious grain that has very minimal processing. Einkorn is also known to be more lighter, more digestible and taste so much more tastier than traditional wheat. Our family loves it and can’t imagine using any other flour.
Pumpkin donuts are fun to make and kids love them.
These pumpkin donuts are baked and dairy free with coconut oil, fresh pumpkin puree, pure maple syrup and warm fall spices.
