Healthy Maple Frosted Pumpkin Donuts

Healthy Maple Frosted Pumpkin Donuts

 

Healthy gluten-free pumpkin donuts frosted with a maple glaze. These maple frosted pumpkin donuts are made high in protein and refined sugar-free.

 


I know, I know. I said I wasn’t going to start making pumpkin recipes until September 1st but I couldn’t help myself. And now I’m so glad I couldn’t because this pumpkin donut recipe is not only the best donut recipe I’ve ever made but also the best pumpkin recipe.

I covered these donuts in a creamy maple frosting made from protein powder, coconut oil, almond milk and sugar-free maple syrup then topped them with crushed pecans.

After making these donuts I had to run off to dinner so I didn’t get time to actually eat one (besides that one bite) so I put them in the fridge for later. When later finally came and I was able to sit down and enjoy one of these donuts, they were even better than I expected and after a day in the fridge, they hadn’t lost any flavor at all.
