These pillow-soft pumpkin spice donut holes are covered in tons of vanilla glaze and perfect for the upcoming fall days!—So easy to mix up and only 51 calories per donut hole.
So September 2nd seems as good a day as any to start the pumpkin train rolling down the track.
Rather fast down said track. Anybody remember my crazy fall mood swings a year ago at this time? It was kinda nuts as apples, pumpkin, cozy foods, cheesy foods, and basically ALL the fall foods took total control over my life/all of our lives.
Yep, I made this fairly evident on the blog last year and I’m fixing to do the same thing again this year. Get on board the fall train and hold on tight.
So first on our fall agenda, friends. ⇓⇓ It’s currently staring you rather hard right in the face. Pumpkin spice donut holes are a GO. ??
Not only that, but we’re doing totes doing healthy/easy-peasy/glaze-covered donut holes today. You know what I mean? The kinda donut holes that are baked, rather than fried and totally good for you so therefore, you have to eat most of the batch yourself.
Yeah, those. >>> thanks for coming to this little corner of pumpkin spice donut holes heaven today, y’all.
It’s covered in tons of glaze and most definitely like heaven.
I mentioned it briefly in the intro of today’s post, but I’ll say it again just to reiterate it’s importance: GUYZ, there’s only 51 freaking little calories per donut hole.
And I’m pretty sure that’s code for eat 10,000. <<< just my thoughts on the matter.
So who’s ready for fall now? If you’re still unsure, you should just eat a donut hole and then decide.
…or just eat the entire batch. Which is what you’re probably gonna end up doing anyway. ✌️✌️

Mmm Sarah, you’re starting September with a MAJOR win! These little donut holes are SO cute and it’s brilliant to just flip the little mini muffins upside down. That glaze is calling out to me…and the low calorie count makes me want a whole big plate of these guys.
Does it make 48 or 24 donut holes? It says 24 but then four twelve mini muffins would be 48
Yes, that was a typo, Candace. The corrected amount is 48.
