Is it really my first pumpkin recipe of the season!? Normally, I’m pumpkin crazy. I’m going to owe this to the fact that until yesterday, Vancouver had brilliant sunshine and record-breaking temperatures. It didn’t even feel like Fall until yesterday! Well, now it’s time to buckle down and use pumpkin until I’m sick of it- which really never happens…

This is a delicious recipe for donut holes, or donut middles. I found it from Two Peas In Their Pod. I first adapted this recipe with a whole wheat pastry flour and some other small changes. When I popped it in the oven I realized I had made a fatal error….I FORGOT THE PUMPKIN. I whipped them out of the oven and dumped them back in the mixing bowl. Disaster averted….although I really wasn’t happy with the texture or flavour of flour. Round 2, I made the recipe exactly as the Peas had, and it was of course, amazing. They were gone in an instant, but that amount of white flour and sugar just doesn’t leave me feeling content. I gave the recipe one more go, this time using spelt flour and coconut sweetener and oil- BINGO! What a success. These tasty bites have all the wonderful flavour that the original recipe has, but with healthy fats, and low-glycemic sweeteners. I’m sure these will be gone in an instant, too!

P.S. What is everyone going to be for Halloween!? I’m making my own costume this year, and for the first time I’m being something scary….a zombie nurse! Pics to come soon :-)
