These bite-size baked pumpkin donut holes are light and fluffy and coated in cinnamon sugar! They’re the perfect fall snack or quick dessert.
These Pumpkin donut holes are packed with so much flavor that it seems like the flavor is oozing out of every pore!
They are so soft and light and since they’re baked and not fried, they’re great if you’re looking for a slightly healthier fall snack. At least, that’s what I have been telling myself! lol!
These little devils are “moreish”! The more you eat, the more you want! I ate a few and knew right away that I needed to share or I would be sitting in my pantry with the door closed, eating them all by myself!
I sent them to my mother-in-law’s house where I knew a lot of people would enjoy them. My husband just shut the door from dropping them off when he received a text from my niece, thanking us for sharing the goodness!
