This sounds like the perfect dessert for fall! Can't wait to try this.

This recipe looks so good! I love all things pumpkin, so I can't wait to try these! I love that they have a doughnut taste without the trouble of having to make a yeast dough. These are perfect with a cup of tea or for a snack or even breakfast! Yum!

Sounds great. Can you substitute sweet potato for the pumpkin?

I have not made this but I live in what we call "The Sweet Potato Captial" and we substitute Sweet Potatoes for Pumpkin all the time and have good results.

wow sounds super yummy... instead of using mini muffin pans I'm going to try it in my cake pop pan and make Cinnamon Pumpkin Doughnut holes. Thanks for the recipe Mama J.

how can I get nutritional info for the recipes?

@jennifermnelson 0897010, Thanks for your input! We're happy to hear you enjoyed this recipe! --Editors of RecipeLion

I had to cut the baking time from the "about 20 minutes" to 15 minutes. The muffins came out wonderful and they are delicious on their own. The cinnamon/sugar coating made them even better! I'll be taking them to a potluck work lunch this week.
