It’s so fun to kick off fall with pumpkin flavoured foods, especially these healthy pumpkin spiced doughnuts. When it comes to Thanksgiving, I love whipping these up for a fun, nutritious dessert.
This recipe only has 8 ingredients and even if you are not a fan of baking I think you will enjoy the simplicity of this dessert. I love creating recipes that contain nutrients that fuel and nourish your body but also taste like a treat. This recipe checks all the boxes and it is easy to fancy them up with a easy homemade glaze or dark chocolate drizzle. See how in recipe notes.
If you are not a fan of pumpkin you can whip up my favourite healthy chocolate doughnuts https://pamrocca.com/2020/12/healthy-chocolate-protein-doughnuts/ or strawberry doughnuts https://pamrocca.com/2020/02/healthy-strawberry-doughnuts/
This simple doughnut recipe works for a healthy thanksgiving dessert, snack or fun breakfast.
In this recipe I used canned pumpkin puree for simplicity and to save time. If you don’t want to use canned pumpkin you can bake a pumpkin by slicing in half, scooping out seeds bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes until soft and cooked through.
