Pumpkin Donuts 

I am in love with pumpkin everything since one of my favorite food bloggers hipped me to Pumpkin desserts two years ago. So this would be perfect for morning and after school treats as well with coffee or tea or my favorite Almond Milk! Also perfect for fall and upcoming holidays!

1 ½ cups Gluten Free Flour½ cup beet sugar (you can use regular old cane sugar in place)

1 teaspoon baking powder½ teaspoon baking soda½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon nutmeg

1/3 cup canned pumpkin

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

½ cup coconut milk

½ cup beet sugar

¼ cup coconut milk

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 teaspoon maple extract pinch of salt finely chopped pecans if desired
Instructions

In a medium mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients.In a small bowl, combine the wet ingredients and then add them to the dry ingredients. Mix well until you have a thick batter. I then spoon the batter into a Ziploc and snip off the corner to make a piping bag to handle the sticky batter.

Add the batter to a greased doughnut pan or mini doughnut baker.

Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven or 5 in the mini doughnut baker.

While the doughnuts are baking, make the glaze.In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, coconut, coconut oil, maple and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.Dip the doughnuts in the glaze (up to twice!) and garnish with pecans if desired.

Festivities Are Over

Hope everyone had a good 4th Of July 

So it is never a dull day with us on family holiday gatherings and people not following directions.

So yesterday’s family funtion was good, however I can happily say I will not be hosting any other holiday events until later this year.

Detox from people is awesome for the soul.

I love my family but seems like it is a more calmer gathering on Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays to host, as everyone was leaving I was thanking the good Lordt, yes the good Lordt (LOL) that the next time I see them their will be no dominos being played only good food and good conversation, having a game of cards/dominos at black family functions is funny but serious at the same time.
I have earned an extra day of rest and I plan to use it wisely, bed & reading.
