Healthy Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donuts
These easy to make fluffy healthy donuts are what we all need this fall. This is the time of year we see pumpkins everywhere. I also stock up on pumpkin puree all year long. We love using them in pancakes and waffles.
If you prefer not to coat these Pumpkin Donuts with cinnamon sugar, you can glaze it with some maple syrup or try it with some cream cheese. Oh so yummy! My kids prefer the cinnamon sugar and I love the maple syrup.
It’s so much more fun to bake donuts than fry them. Which makes it much healthier than the traditional donut. We usually can’t even wait for these Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donuts to cool down before we dig into them. Plus they don’t even last us till the next day especially when cousins and friends come over!
You can skip the protein in this recipe if you aren’t into protein. You can always add more flour instead. Use about 1/4 cup of flour in place of the 1 scoop of protein.
