Evidently it's NATIONAL DONUT DAY!

Who comes up with all these crazy days anyway??

My youngest child LOOOVES DONUTS! He is obsessed with donuts...something we need to work on..haha. But, these sound yummy to try and so much healthier than regular donuts!

I saw this recipe on Super Sister Fitness instagram today. 

Try making these Healthy Pumpkin Spice donuts 🎃🍩 


1 cup pumpkin puree 
2 tbs coconut oil
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tsp pumpkin spice
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup oat flour (blend regular oats and measure after)
1/3 cup lightly packed brown sugar (I may try and substitute this with coconut sugar)

For the cinnamon sugar topping:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup coconut or cane sugar (pure maple sugar is great to bake with too)
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a donut pan (oooo...I need one quick :D) very well with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, stir together the pumpkin, coconut oil (measured when completely melted), large egg, and vanilla extract until completely combined.

Add in the baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Stir until completely combined. If you really like spice, you can add a little more pumpkin spice.
Stir in the brown sugar and oat flour (blend regular old fashioned oats or quick oats in a blender or food processor until they resemble flour. Measure AFTER blending, not before).

Place thick batter in a large ziploc bag. Seal the bag well and cut the tip off of one bottom corner.
Pipe the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Once donuts are baked, remove from the oven and melt butter. In a small bowl, combine sugar with cinnamon.
Dip donuts in the butter and quick roll into your cinnamon sugar mixture. Set aside and let cool.

Don't they look and sound delish?? Let me know if you try them!
