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.
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.
