Mama Pea's Pumpkin Protein Donuts w/ Chocolate chips

Submitted by: THESHRINKINLADY

Introduction

I was craving a donut this morning but am really trying hard to eat clean and make things at home to control what goes in them. So I made my own.

She is strict vegan and uses all non-dairy. I only had dairy based protein powders and chocolate chips. Also, I doubled her recipe since I was using a muffin pan.

If you have a donut pan, then these make donuts. I do not so I used a 12 muffin pan.

Ingredients

    2 cups ground old fashioned oats (grind into fine flour in blender/processor)
    2/3 cup of protein powder (I used MRM All Natural Whey; Mama Pea is vegan so she uses pea/rice proteins)
    2 TBSP baking powder
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1/2 tsp salt
    Stevia to taste (I used two individual packets of Stevia in the Raw)
    1 cup canned pumpkin (pumpkin only!, no sugars, no salt)
    1 cup of non-dairy milk (I used almond, unsweetened)
    1 tsp of vanilla xtract
    2 TBsP of chocolate chips (Mama Pea is vegan so she uses non-dairy chocolate chips)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grind oats into flour and combine in a large bowl with protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and stevia.

In a separate bowl, combine pumpkin, milk and vanilla and stir.

Add pumpkin mixture to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.

Spoon or pipe batter into a donut pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray or lightly greased. (If you donít have a donut pan and want to make muffins, you can double the recipe, and add the chocolate chips directly to the batter. It should make between 12-16 muffins, but you may need to bake them a bit longer than the donuts.)

Bake for 8-10 minutes (for donut pan or 12-15 minutes if using a muffin pan), until donuts are set and starting to brown.

Allow donuts to cool in the pan for approximately 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

While the donuts are cooling, melt chocolate chips in a microwave or double boiler. Drizzle chocolate evenly over cooled donuts. Allow chocolate to set before eating.

NOTE: I just put some chocolate chips on top of each dollop of batter before baking.

Serving Size: Makes 12 donuts or "muffins"

Number of Servings: 12
