Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! Today I am up in Boston for a company meeting, which means I was up at 4:30am to make sure I got my workout in then off to the train by 7am! It is definitely going to make for a long day, but I am looking forward to a great weekend off! The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I am a big urge to bake!! That means many more delicious treats to come! ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought these delicious fall donuts would make the perfect end to a long week! Every bite reminds of fall! I hope you enjoy them! Isn’t it nice to be able to enjoy a donut and still be eating healthy?! Have a great weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

Two of my favorite fall desserts are pumpkin donuts and apple cider donuts, both covered in massive amounts of sugar!!! They are a tradition when we head to the apple orchard every fall! These donuts satisfied that craving PLUS are healthy….that I may have even had more than two one at a time ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Would you do me a huge favor? Send me some of these DELICIOUS THINGS?!?! However, when you make them for me, could you use Flax-Egg/Hemp-Egg instead of eggs, because I cannot eat eggs. I only ask you to send them to me because even though you lay out how to make these, I would still ruin it, HA HA HA!

    What brand of almond flour do you use or used for this recipe? I had purchased Bob's and then read in some books that Bob's brand doesn't have the same results as others. Thanks!
