Do you love pumpkin?  Of course, you do. Who doesn’t?  Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that doesn’t love pumpkin.

 

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a total basic girl and when September rolls around, it’s pumpkin spice everything for me! I literally cannot get enough of it so today I made pumpkin donuts. They are healthy, of course and made with protein powder and whole food ingredients.

They are perfect just as they are without any icing or cinnamon sugar. I had one like this and dipped it in my coffee… OMG. TO DIE FOR!

Dipping them in a cinnamon sugar mix is not such a bad idea either!

Using Snickerdoodle flavored protein powder tastes the best when baking with pumpkin. Although, a simple vanilla flavor will work, I highly recommend SNICKERDOODLE PEScience Select Protein! Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO.

  • 1 egg, 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F and prepare a donut pan with non-stick spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, sift all your dry ingredients together (oat four, almond flour, protein, coconut sugar, baking powder and spices).
  3. In another bowl, whisk together your egg, egg white, almond milk, pumpkin and vanilla extract.
  4. Add your pumpkin mix to your dry mix and stir until smooth.
  5. Pour your donut batter into a piping bag or plastic zip bag and cut the corner. Pipe your pumpkin batter into 6 donut molds. Fill almost full.
