Pumpkin Donut Muffins
Donuts are my kryptonite. Seriously. Just one little donut hole can screw up my “healthy lifestyle” for a year or so, as it will inevitably send me careening into an endless eat-all-the-fried-carbs-athon.
So, to be honest, I avoid donuts like the plague. It’s just something I live with.
Buuuuuuuttttt….. these donuts aren’t *technically* donuts, per se.
I mean… I did use a donut recipe. That’s true. But I baked them. AND they’re in the shape of muffins. AND there’s a significant amount of vegetables* in them.
By “vegetables,” I obviously mean pumpkin + cinnamon + a-fairly-heaping-amount-of-sugar*.
And in case vegetable donuts aren’t your thing*, I also topped mine with a hefty dollop of buttery maple frosting. That way it’s not like you’re eating a salad* for breakfast or anything weird like that.
So… win-win for everybody!
*Yesssssssssssss. I know that these are in no way, shape, or form like eating a salad! So, please, before you regale me with how unhealthy these muffins actually are (because I know some of you are about to!) and how sad you are for me to have such a poor understanding of nutrition, please take a moment to consider the sarcastic tone of this post.
And then go make these muffins!
