Say hello to your new favorite sweet-tooth craving crusher.
I'm a firm believer that you should never deny yourself something you want, and trust me when I say you will crave these paleo pumpkin donuts. Instead of grabbing that box of cookies or that overpriced dairy concoction, rethink things. What exactly are you craving? Is there a way to still get what you want without cheating on your diet or overindulging? The answer is often YES!
I love rethinking something I'm craving. Like when I was craving Cheese Nachos and instead of caving, I made Paleo style nachos using a vegan cheese sauce (don't dismiss it till you try it). I loved them, and I still ate to my heart's content without adding dairy. Or like these gluten free paleo pumpkin donuts. I wanted donuts that covered both my craving for pumpkin spice and sugar.
These gluten free Paleo pumpkin donuts fit the bill, and guess what? I only need to eat ONE! They are so rich and satisfying that I only needed one pumpkin donut to curb my craving. I was able to enjoy them for a few days along with coffee without over doing it. #love It can't get much better than that.
