This was my first crack at making healthy donuts.
And it was a success.
A very, very big, success!
I figured it only made sense to do healthy pumpkin spice donuts since were smack dab in the heart of fall right now. Plus, I'm a sucker for pretty much all things pumpkin.
These donuts are...
Sweet, with a hint of spice
& Highly addicting
If there is one recipe of mine that you make this month, I highly encourage you to make this one! And if you take me up on that, and try these healthy pumpkin spice donuts for yourself, don't forget to snap a pic and tag it #thedietchef. As always, you can check out this recipe, and many many more on The Diet Chef YouTube channel!
