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 Need to Celebrate the Average Day

Happy holidays, Modern Mentees! What are you going to be up to? I’m excited to hang with my family, eat delicious food, catch up on sleep… and Netflix! I wanted to share today’s topic because it’s something I’m personally working on. I find, especially during the holidays, that we’re so so so busy and looking forward to lots of things that we totally forget the present moment. The present moment is so important because it’s really all we have! Check out today’s video to help you celebrate the average day.
