Donuts
Ingredients
  1. 1 ½ Cups of Blanched almond flour (not packed)
  2. ½ scoop whey protein powder
  3. ½ tsp Himalayan pink salt
  4. ½ tsp baking powder
  5. 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  6. 2 tbs room temp butter (Or Coconut oil)
  7. 1/3 Cup THM brown sugar
  8. 3 eggs
  9. 1 Cup pumpkin puree (Fresh or canned just make sure the ingredients are only pumpkin if using canned)
  10. Cinnamon brown butter Glaze
  11. 3 TBS Butter
  12. 2-3 shakes ground cinnamon
  13. 3 TBS Truvia or 1.5 TBS THM Sweet Blend
  14. 1-2 tsp cream
Donuts
Directions
  1. In a bowl cream your butter, protein powder and THM brown sugar, then add your pumpkin puree, and mix well until completely combined. Add in your three eggs mix until thoroughly incorporated. Add in your almond flour one cup at a time then add in your pumpkin pie spice, salt and baking powder mix until the mix is combined well and smooth.
  2. If you have a donut maker : Place about 1 TBS in each well of your donut maker and allow your donuts to cook easily until the ready light comes on.
  3. If using a donut pan preheat your oven to 350 .
  4. Fill each donut well with about 1 ½ TBS of mix. Bake for about 10-12 min or until you can insert a tooth pick and it comes out clean 
Glaze
  1. Grind or blend the Truvia or THM Sweet Blend in a blender or coffee grounder until powdered. In a small pan melt and brown 3 TBS butter, you will know it is ready when it begins to smell very fragrant and caramel-ish. Remove pan from heat and add two to three shakes of cinnamon and mix well. Then add in the powdered Truvia or sweet blend slowly until it is completely combined. Add cream 1 tsp at a time until it is nice and creamy.
Notes
  1. Allow your donuts to cool (if you can I personally burned my tongue because they smelled sooooo good!) enjoy dipping these in the brown butter glaze or roll each donut in the glaze and allow it to cool before eating.
