Paleo pumpkin spice donuts

While shopping at Kohls today I spotted this awesome little donut iron. It's a Babycakes Donut Maker and works much like a waffle iron. I was intrigued and with a 15% off coupon in my pocket I decided it was worth a try. My boys were so excited when they saw a donut maker. They begged me to make them some dessert with it. I decided to modify a pumpkin bar recipe I had tried from Elana's pantry earlier this week. The result was a moist cakey donut that my boys gobbled right up! As usual with my sweetener, I fill the measuring cup about 2/3 of the way then fill the remaining amount with water.

Paleo Pumpkin Spice Donuts

1/2 cup pumpkin purée (i used canned)
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
2 eggs
1 cup almond flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

In food processor (or use electric mixer) blend pumpkin, maple and egg until completely combined. Add all remaining ingredients and blend until combined. Pour batter into greased hot donut maker and cook until ready light turns on. Remove with the special fork provided. Serve and enjoy!
