Pumpkin Butter Donuts

Oh my – do I have a breakfast treat for you all today!!! It’s been a while since I shared a donut recipe with you & so I’m super excited about this one. It’s absolutely heavenly because I used the Slow Cooker Gingered Pumpkin Butter I shared with you all last week & then I sprinkled a little granola on these for fun. SO AMAZING I tell you!! This is definitely my favorite donut recipe to date.

 I love these because it’s got that wonderful fall hint of spices & the pumpkin butter really gives them a full & rich flavor.

 Incredibly moist & soft.  Since these are mini’s – I feel a little less guilty eating them too.

 Just a hint of glaze drizzled over is just the right amount – to not over-power the pumpkin butter flavor.

    Sound fabulous! I bought a mini donut pan in the spring and haven’t used it yet…..these might have to be the donuts I christen it with! Do you live in or around Lyons, NY? I saw the ad at the top of your post and was surprised by that….I live in Palmyra, NY. Just wondering! Visiting from TGIF Link Party.
