Pumpkin Protein Donuts with Cinnamon Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

An easy Fall delight you won't want to miss out on!

Pumpkin Protein Donuts with Cinnamon Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

Alright Autumn/Fall, however you prefer to call it, is upon us and I have a confession...I'm a summer girl through and through. But, hay rides, haunted houses, apple picking and any reason to enjoy a festive confection helps get me through! (I'm also a sweets girl through and through lol!) So here I've created a macro friendly version of pumpkin donuts with cinnamon vanilla cream cheese frosting! I feel some pumpkin chocolate chip mini muffins coming in the near future too after creating this one!

Keep active with the cooler weather my friends, don’t let it slow you down! Get out and savor the fresh air and sunshine. I try to focus on what each season offers and enjoy those exclusive things, such as the beautiful foliage that we get to experience during this season. Bundling up is a must for those of us who are “cold blooded” but wear however many layers are necessary for you, don’t worry about what others think, or looking cute! Just get out and feel good! (I promise you really will feel much better after!)

Quick tip: if you are in a serious contest cut/prep, weigh the entire cooked batch of donuts and the entire frosting batch in grams, that way when you eat a serving you can weigh your serving and quantify it accurately!

I hope you enjoy these, feel free to reach out to me boho_nutrition on Instagram with any nutrition related questions or recipes you would like made "macro friendly". I love talking food!

This recipe is suitable for bariatric patients, lacto-ovo vegetarians, body builders, anyone who is practicing moderation or just someone looking for a delicious festive Fall treat!

1 tsp no calorie sweetener of choice

4Tbs water (thin to the consistency desired)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Mix donut ingredients in blender beat until smooth

Spray donut pan with olive oil spray (These donuts tend to stick)

Spoon batter into donut pan evenly, dough will be sticky, smooth out and form with a spoon/rubber spatula

(If you get batter on the donut centers just wipe with a paper towel)

Bake for 12-15 minutes

Put on wire rack to cool

To make your frosting, mix all ingredients in the blender with water and cinnamon until smooth

Chill in the fridge to create smooth frosting consistency

Spoon frosting onto each donut evenly or wait to frost when you plan to eat them! (Donuts are fine outside the fridge but frosting needs to be refrigerated)

Enjoy!
