Snow Day Healthy Pumpkin Doughnut Holes

Back to school after the holiday break is always rough, but winter classes mean the possibility of snow days. For me, snow days are always about baking (or making pancakes) or both and I wanted to share a healthier version of doughnuts.  These are made like muffins, but roll them in cinnamon sugar and yum… doughnuts!

Donut Ingredients 

Makes 24 mini donuts holes

1 ½ cups almond flour

pinch of salt 

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

2 TBS coconut oil

2 TBS honey

2 large eggs

3/4 cup canned pumpkin

1 mashed banana

(I threw a handful of dark chocolate chips in my second batch because I had some to use!)

Mini muffin tin

Cinnamon Sugar (I used coconut sugar) for rolling

Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees. In a mixing bowl combine almond flour, salt baking soda, and  pumpkin pie spice then add the coconut oil, honey, eggs, pumpkin and banana until smooth.

Grease the mini-muffin pan (I used a tiny bit of coconut oil) and spoon in batter.

Why we all Need a Mentor

I call my work Modern Mentoring, which is just a fancy word for big sister. I’m the big sis in my family and it was sometimes hard having to do everything first. When I needed advice I had to find someone who had done it before me. Mentors have been SO important in my life and that’s why I love my job!
