Pumpkin protein donuts

Healthy pumpkin donuts recipe

If you’re a donut fan, but you’re hesitant to eat them because of their high sugar content then you’ll love these! These donuts are delicious and guilt-free! The best part about them is they’re super high in protein and they stay doughy. Pumpkin is one of my favorite foods and flavours to bake with because it tastes and bakes amazing!

Nutritional value (per serving): Calories 92; Protein 6g; Carbohydrates 7.6g; Fat 5g

– 1 cup pumpkin puree
– 1 scoop of salted caramel protein powder (vanilla would work as well)
– 1 egg
– ½ cup coconut flour
– 2 Tbsp vegetable butter
– 1 Tbsp coconut milk
– ¼ tsp baking soda
– 1 tsp vanilla Stevia (or sweetener of your choice)
– 2 tsp pumpkin spice
– 2 Tbsp vanilla extract
– 1 cup coconut whip (to top the donuts)
– Sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)

In a large bowl, blend all wet ingredients together with hand mixer. Fold in dry ingredients. Mixture will be on the thicker side (this is normal). Next, pre spray donut tins and then scoop out mixture and form into the tins.

Bake at 350° for 20-25 mins or until golden brown.

Let cool before icing and top with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy!
