Pumpkin Sweet Potato Doughnuts!

It's no secret, it's the season of the pumpkin! Why not mix a little pumpkin and sweet potato puree into a doughnut your children will love! Trust me, this recipe is kid-approved and full of Vitamin A as well as fiber and many other nutrients. There are many versions of puree doughnut recipes online, this one is my favorite!



Ingredients

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin is a-ok!)

1/2 cup sweet potato puree

1/2 cup milk

1 egg white

1 tbsp butter

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice


Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a doughnut mold with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, pumpkin puree, sweet potato puree, milk, egg white, butter, and vanilla. Mix together in a separate bowl the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and pumpkin spice. Mix all ingredients together in the large bowl.

Pour the batter into a gallon-sized plastic bag, cut the bottom tip off of one side of the bag. Squeeze the batter through, into the doughnut mold. Bake until the tops are lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted, 20 to 25 minutes. Place doughnuts onto cooling rack. When cool, dust with confectioners’ sugar.


Enjoy!
