Start your fall seasonal recipes off right with this Pumpkin Protein Donuts recipe! These healthy donuts taste just as good as the real thing, are low carb, keto friendly, and PACKED with fiber! The best part? You don’t need protein powder to make them!

For this recipe you’re going to need a large bowl, something to mix all of your ingredients with, and a donut pan like this one.

Add into your bowl 1 large whole egg, 3 large egg whites, 1 scoop of a vanilla protein powder (optional), 6 tablespoons of coconut flour, 3 teaspoons of light brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree, 1/2 tablespoon of melted coconut oil, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.

If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice you, you can make by mixing together 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and 1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves.

Mix all of those ingredients together until smooth. A hand mixer will make this easier but isn’t need.

If you’re not using protein powder you need to add a bit more flour in if your mix doesn’t thicken up enough.

Take out a donut pan, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and evenly distribute your mix into it. Make sure not to cover the flat portion of each donut spot. This will be the “hole” in your donut.

Top your donuts with whatever you want before the oven and bake them on 350F/176C for around 8-10 minutes.
