Dairy Free Mini Pumpkin Donut Muffins

photo 3Mini, pop-able donuts have always been my favorite kind of donut. Not because they taste any better than the regular kind but because they are just more fun to eat and I base half the things I eat on whether they are fun or not! I can’t have the regular donuts anymore since they are not dairy free but I can eat these awesome pumpkin donut muffins. You don’t have to feel too guilty about popping several of these compared to regular donuts so go ahead and enjoy!

  • 1/4 cup of dairy free margarine, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon of of ground nutmeg
