Keto Pumpkin Donuts
In my humble and biased opinion, keto pumpkin donuts are a must have for fall! As some of you know, fall is my favorite time of year. This is likely because I know the even cooler months of winter are generally coming next. When fall arrives, the cool air energizes and invigorates me to stay even more productive. So, these delectable little keto pumpkin donuts are the perfect snack to help me and hopefully you stay productive this fall.
Since, eating too much pumpkin will have a person on the “keto” diet walking a fine line, these are really keto pumpkin spice donuts!
While many people say they like pumpkin, in reality it is the pumpkin spice that draws one back year after year looking for pumpkin everything. Well, for years, I too was guilty of saying that I like pumpkin, when in reality, it is the pumpkin spice that most people really like! After learning some of the health benefits of pumpkin spice, you will discover that besides the great aroma, pumpkin spice has warming properties that make it an excellent fall and winter treat. I am definitely one of those pumpkin spice everything kind of people. With that said, however, this year’s fall magazine has a very interesting twist.
Okay, so enough about the spice, let’s get to the keto pumpkin donuts!
