Melt your Coconut Oil and add all of your ingredients aside from your Greek Yogurt and Halloween Sprinkles into a bowl. Mix all of those ingredients together. Take out a doughnut pan, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and pour your mix in (make sure not to cover the doughnut hole). Top your doughnuts with whatever you want. Put them into the oven on 350°F/176°C for 10:0015:00. After 10:0015:00 take them out, top with some optional Greek Yogurt, Halloween Sprinkles, and anything else you want. Mouthgasm!


  • Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice: 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger, 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg, 1/8 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • If you’re not using Protein Powder you might need to add a bit more flour in if your mix doesn’t thicken up enough!
