pumpkin cinnamon chip donuts

3 large eggs, slightly beaten

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cinnamon chips

cinnamon - sugar {which is 2 tblsp. of sugar and 2 tblsp. of cinnamon mixed}.. any left overs put in an airtight container and use it on the best cinnamon toast ever..

directions:

preheat oven to 350 degrees {f}.. lightly spray your standard donut pan.. beat together the butter, eggs, sugar, pumpkin puree, spice, salt and baking powder until smooth.. add flour and cinnamon chips and mix until well combined.. fill the wells of your donut pan 3/4 of the way.. bake for approx. 15 minutes or until your cake tester once inserted comes out clean.. remove donut pan from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.. then with  a spatula loose the edges and transfer to a cooling rack.. in a small wide mouthed bowl mix the cinnamon and sugar.. while they are still warm take each donut and dip in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and place back on the cooling rack.. allow to completely cool and serve {if you don't allow to cool completely they are slightly fragile but super yummy while warm so might be worth the risk!!}
