Keto Pumpkin Spice Donuts

Keto Pumpkin Spice Donuts

Recipe and content provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

These keto pumpkin spice donuts greet you with their warm, cinnamon scent as they bake in the oven. As you turn them out onto a cooling rack, you can’t help but break off a small piece and pop it in your mouth. Your eyes close and you think ‘Ahhhhh…now that’s the stuff of a good life’. The texture is just perfect for a pumpkin spice cake donut and the flavors so uplifting and reminiscent of fall.

If four carbs is too many, consider eating only half a donut. They are immensely satisfying!
