Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Chocolate Chip donuts

Happy Halloween!!

I donut want to stop baking pumpkin treats! I recently made this recipe for pumpkin donuts, and it turned out very tasty, so of course I covered them in chocolate to make them even more special! But they certainly taste great with the chocolate coating as well - you can omit the chocolate and chocolate chips for simple pumpkin donuts. These would be a great treat to bring to a Halloween party for a festive, yet healthier, option! I brought these to a friend’s birthday party, and they were a huge hit!



Makes 6 medium sized donuts and a few mini donuts


½ cup pumpkin puree

1 egg

½ cup milk

¼ cup maple syrup or honey

Splash of vanilla


1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp pumpkin spice

Dash of salt

Add in:

About ¼ cup dark chocolate chips

To cover in chocolate:

About ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips

1 tbsp coconut oil


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly spray a donut pan with oil.

2. Whisk wet and mix dry ingredients together in separate bowls.

3. Add together and mix well in a large bowl.

4. Mix in chocolate chips.

5. Spoon batter into the donut pan - it should be flat with the top of the pan or a little lower, since the donuts will rise when baked.

6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

7. Remove donuts from the oven and let cool.

8. While the donuts are cooling, melt more chocolate chips in a shallow bowl with the coconut oil - I microwaved it for a minute, then stirred, then continued for a few more intervals of about 15 seconds, stirring in between, until the chocolate is smooth and completely melted.

9. Set out a sheet of parchment or wax paper.

10. Once the donuts are cooled, use a spatula to slide them out of the pan. Dip them in chocolate, then place on the paper. I used a fork to move them to minimize the mess.

11. Set in the refrigerator until the chocolate has cooled and is solid.

12. Enjoy!!!
