Happy Fun Treat Fridays guys. We are four weeks into this series and I hope you guys have enjoyed all the fun and delicious treats so far. I’ve had so much fun creating all of these yummy treats and can’t wait to share the rest. Eating them has been a lot of fun too! (lol).
This week is all about pumpkin donuts. I love donuts and once fall comes around and pumpkin season officially starts I’m all about pumpkin donuts. I’m not going to lie, I do head to Dunkin Donuts and indulge in a pumpkin donut and pumpkin latte. Yes! I am team pumpkin all the way and like to get my all pumpkin everything as soon as September hits.
While I do like to treat myself to a nice pastry every now and then, I don’t make it a habit and certainly don’t eat this way everyday or even every week. I’ll eat an actual donut from Dunkin Donuts or any bakery probably twice the whole season. This is because these kind of foods really don’t set too well with my stomach. They just make my tummy really hurt and most times it’s just not even worth it. I much rather make a healthy and clean version at home and still indulge on a sweet treat.
I have been making these pumpkin donuts for quite sometime now. my husband loves to have these for breakfast especially when he’s running late for work. He just grabs a couple of donuts and heads out the door. This year was the first time Emma tried these and she was a big fan too. She’s had regular donuts so when saw these she knew what they were and really enjoyed them. Of course she’s also had donuts I have made at home and likes those too.
Like with all of my other pumpkin treats, I use homemade pumpkin puree to make these donuts. Using fresh homemade puree is what makes these donuts that much more delicious. They taste just like pumpkin and blends deliciously with all of the spices. They truly taste like fall. I like to eat them right out of the oven while they’re still warm. They come out really moist on the inside and after one bite you can instantly taste the pumpkin. I love to have these with a cup of coffee or with my Pumpkin Hot Chocolate.
You can eat these donuts as is or you can make a frosting to go with them. I like to mix some plain Greek yogurt with some cinnamon and maple syrup to use as my frosting. It keeps it healthy and makes these donuts even more delicious. It ties all the flavors together making these the perfect healthy pumpkin fall treat.
