It's pumpkin season every season at my house, for a few reasons.
1. We live in Florida so we never really get "fall," so I'm never over it.
2. It's delicious.
3. Pumpkin is a health food.
I'm not a big fan of PSL, but I do love everything else pumpkin spice!
Recently my children wanted to make a fun treat, and I had a box of Simple Mills Pumpkin Muffin Mix on hand.
Simple Mills is a hero food brand in our house, because it's always clean and they have so many paleo friendly options...AND it tastes delicious every time.
This recipe came out so moist and tasty, and the donut holes held up great to being gently tossed in organic powdered sugar.
You can totally skip this part, but we wanted to make it extra pretty and fun. It was a great job for the children to do after the balls were baked.
Pumpkin Spice Paleo Donut Holes
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup milk
1 tbs coconut oil
1 drop each of Young Living Cinnamon Bark, Clove and Nutmeg Vitality oils (you can use 1/2 tsp of dried ground if that's what you have)
Fill a well greased cake pop pan almost to the top with batter, then bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
Let cool slightly, then remove from pan after removing lid by banging against the counter.
Any that don't fall out can be carefully scraped out with a spoon.
We love using Young Living Vitality oils in baking, because they're super convenient, have a broader range of amazing flavor than dried versions, and offer their own wellness benefits.
And look how moist and amazing these came out!
Let them cool to warm to the touch, then roll in powdered sugar if desired.
Store in the fridge since they don't have any icky preservatives in them!
If you love the look of these, you might also want to make my Pumpkin Magnesium Muffins, that are nourishing, crowd-pleasing and pack 100mg of magnesium in each one!
