Happy Glorious Game Day Saturday. I just had a wonderful time watching OU dominate Iowa State and struck up an interesting conversation – healthy pumpkin doughnuts. My dear friend Pam had a gaggle of children spend the night and they sprung out of bed this morning to make pumpkin doughnuts. How festive! Pam being the rational adult considered the previous evenings consumption of all things sugar and Halloween so she picked a healthy, yet delicious recipe to start the day – which also serves as an easy way to sneak in a vegetable.
She has an adorable cookbook, Deceptively Delicious: Simple Recipes to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food. The book is chalked full of wonderful ideas to sneak veggies into everyday meals. You might think this book was written to trick children, but I am willing to bet there are a few finicky adults that could be fooled into eating something healthy.
I hope you enjoy this festive, fall recipe. (more…)
