Sugar Free Pumpkin Protein Donuts - TheFitFork.comI don’t need to explain myself, it’s October. But, I will because I like to talk! October is the month when all things pumpkin happen and I when I kick up my running into a higher gear for a late fall season marathon. This year, I am also doing Spartan Beast in Dallas on Oct. 31st — I know, SCARY in so many ways!

Sugar Free Pumpkin Protein Donuts with Cinnamon Frosting

The point is, I need some extra power in this month of pumpkin-mania and so I’ve pumped up my recipe with protein powder. You can use whatever type of protein powder you prefer — whey, soy, pea, or whatever! This recipe is also sugar-free, gluten-free, nut-free (pumpkin seeds are SEEDS, duh) and Paleo friendly. Enjoy!

    • yes, I think you DO! Btw, can’t wait to hear how marathon goes . . . I’m assuming it’s Chicago. Need to do that one someday

  1. I am all set for this recipe! Yay. Have all the ingredients and tools – love my mini-donut pan 🙂 Which late fall marathon are you doing?

      • Great – hope your training continues to go well! I am doing a half marathon in Niagara Falls on October 25th – I haven’t been running long, just consistently so won’t be a PR. My friend is doing the Full. Should be a fun destination 🙂

    • THANK YOU FOR CATCHING MY ERROR, not only did I forget water, milk, oil . . . I forgot pumpkin puree — my sleep deprived brain just skipped over while I was typing into my recipe app. Thanks, it should be fixed now

  2. YOU TOTALLY made these with me in mind!!! I have made very very similar (in fact, I made something just like this this AM — kinda like my strawberry cake recipe) and um, I am addicted!! TOO addicted. I think I cannot make them anymore because I will not be able to stop eating! LOL!

    • I had to fight my kids off — usually there’s not much fighting for the “healthy” stuff . . . but these are super yum

  3. Funny the girls were just asking me to break out the mini muffin pan again and make them donuts! I have a pumpkin recipe that I usually make but these look delicious too I think we will have to give them a try!
