Baked, Whole Wheat, Pumpkin Donuts

It’s Halloween and you know what’s scary? The ease in which I find my self perusing Amazon and purchasing the nonsensical.

However, the latest random Amazon purchase of this Donut Pan only set me back $10 and led to a delightful creation with the quintessential fall ingredient: Whole Wheat Pumpkin Donuts.

Baked, Whole Wheat, Pumpkin Donuts

I took me a while to find a recipe that was easy, had the ability to be “healthy-ish” and didn’t contain the uber-trendy and overpriced specialty flours. I landed on THIS RECIPE, with a few substitutions of my own:

  • Whole wheat instead of regular flour
  • Almond milk instead of regular milk
  • Coconut oil instead of applesauce (I didn’t have any applesauce)

Because of the substitution of whole wheat, I ended up adding more almond milk that originally called for, and the results were still cinnamon-sugary, donut-shaped goodness that were gobbled up at a party I took them too.

Oh and if you’re wondering, save yourself the $5 and don’t buy the youth “mouse” costume set at Target. Your attempt at a lazy costume will likely fail like mine did when the mouse nose snapped.

Happy Halloween!

    The costume is still cute!

    Congratulations on signing up for the Half Iron. I’ll look forward to the training posts.

    Those donuts look delicious! I have a donut pan (also purchased from amazon) that I’ve used a few times. Baking them is much less scary than deep frying and of course healthier.

    What a cute mouse! Does “chicken face” actually wear a “chicken face on Halloween?????

    Oh my gosh, I may have giggled at your mouse face. I’m kind of jealous of those donuts though. Living in the sorority house means no kitchen for me to cook in :(

    I’m going as a mouse tonight – my little boy is going as cheese. Thanks for the Target warning!!! Those doughnuts look amazing too.
