Clean Eating Pumpkin Donuts

10 Sep

(Makes 8 donuts)

Donut Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or plain)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 packets of stevia

Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1/2 scoop whey protein powder (I used cinnamon swirl but vanilla is fine too)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or plain)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • *if not sweet enough stevia can be added to taste

Directions:

  1. Whisk all ingredients together and carefully pour into doughnut pan. Don’t fill too high or you won’t have a hole in the middle of your doughnut!
  2. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until done.
  3. For the glaze, simply whisk all the ingredients together in a small mixing bowl and pour over the donuts after they have cooled.

Recipe Notes: Another variation I’ve tried is using two egg whites instead of the whole egg and 1/4c raw coconut crystals in place of the stevia.  For the frosting we’ve also used nonfat plain Greek yogurt with a packet of stevia and a few drops of vanilla extract
