Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts

Doughnuts are one of those foods that we all love, but always seem to be placed on the "naughty" list due to poor nutritional content. We love doughnuts and wanted to create one that not only tasted delicious, but contained less than 100 calories per serving, is lower in sugar and packs a decent amount of protein- and we think we have a winner here. This doughnut is soft, flavorful and won't leave you feeling an ounce of guilt after eating one (or two... or three!).

INGREDIENTS

  • 1-1/4 cup FlapJacked Buttermilk Protein Pancake Mix
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 TBSP maple sugar (or raw cane sugar)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

TOPPING (optional)

  • 1/4 cup maple sugar (or raw cane sugar)
  • 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon

NUTRITION

  • Serving Size:   1 doughnut
  • Servings:   12
  • Calories:   58
  • Fat:   2g

  • Protein:   4g

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Combine the FlapJacked mix, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and maple sugar into a small bowl.
  • In another (medium) bowl, combine almond milk, egg and pumpkin puree.
  • Use a spoon to dollop batter into a greased doughnut pan(s). Batter should fill doughnut pan to the center, but don't cover the center. (You should have enough batter for 12 doughnuts.)
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool for just a moment while you mix the sugar and cinnamon and place in a large resealable bag. Shake each doughnut in the sugar, tap off excess.
  • You will not use all of the sugar mixture- but extra helps coat the doughnuts easier. ENJOY!
