Healthy pumpkin spiced donuts recipe

Hello friends! Sorry for not posting any content last week, was traveling all week due to work BUT now we are back! Today we will focus on two yummy items that have combined forces: pumpkin and donuts aka pumpkin donuts!

 

How the pumpkin donut idea came to life

One day Jeff and I were roaming through our favorite thrift store in Boston, where Jeff discovered a donut pan. I was so excited that he went straight to the checkout line! My excitement for this $2.00 donut pan came from the fact that we can make yummy healthier donuts at home vs. deep frying the donuts (which is shown on many youtube videos).

 

Where did we find the perfect recipe

Since we are in full autumn season, I wanted to incorporate a yummy fall twist to our first set of donuts. We found a great baked pumpkin donut recipe on Show me the yummy, where they provide 1) detailed list of ingredients, 2) instructions on how create the donuts, 3) a great quality youtube video on how to make these yummy treats for those who prefer to watch how things are made (like me!), and 4) different types of frosting/toppings for your pumpkin donuts.

 

Recommendations for when to make these yummy donuts

Below are some of the pictures we took of our delicious pumpkin donuts and we decided to keep them plane, which still had such a great flavor! After making our first batch, we started thinking of ideas of when to make this great fall favorite and this is what we came up with:

  1. When you are in the mood for something sweet
  2. Want to treat your family will a fun surprise
  3. When hosting your next holiday party (this can either be a dessert option or a party favor for your guests)
  4. A yummy holiday gift treat vs. buying holiday treats at the store

Knowing us, we will be doing all of the above!

These were our first 6 donuts and we were not disappointed

 

In our second try, we found a mini-donut pan at TJMaxx and created more donuts! This is how they look right after they came out of the oven

 

Our final look at the second batch. These were packaged and shared with our families

 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this blog post! We hope that this inspires you to make some yummy and chic pumpkin donuts to either personally enjoy or to share them with loved one.
