Clean Eating Pumpkin Donuts

Recipe Notes: Another variation I've tried is using two egg whites instead of the whole egg and 1/4 cup raw coconut crystals in place of the stevia. For the frosting we've also used nonfat plain Greek yogurt with a packet of stevia and a few drops of vanilla extract.

Yield 8 donuts


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or plain)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 4 packets stevia
  • 1/2 scoop whey protein powder (I used cinnamon swirl but vanilla is fine too)
  • 1 tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or plain)
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • stevia to taste if needed


  1. Whisk all ingredients together and carefully pour into doughnut pan. Don't fill too high or you won't have a hole in the middle of your doughnut!

  2. Bake at 350 F. for 20 minutes or until done.

  3. For the glaze, simply whisk all the ingredients together in a small mixing bowl and pour over the donuts after they have cooled.
