Paleo Pumpkin Spice Donuts

Yesterday was the November Chicago Food Swap at The Chopping Block! I wanted to bring something unique, healthy, festive and trendy to the swap and thus, these Paleo Pumpkin Spice Donuts were born!

But before we get to the recipe, let’s take a look at all the action during the swap!


The Chopping Block was the PERFECT location for the swap – plenty of room, lots of counter space, and of course darling kitchen decor to set the mood! Everyone set up their items and swap coordinator Emily gave us the run down. This was my third swap (check out my first swap here!), so I knew the drill, but it was fun to catch up with other veteran swappers and see the creations they brought from their own kitchen!

In addition to these Pumpkin Spice Donuts I also brought two Kombucha starters. You can see my donut samples in the picture to the left – the samples disappeared in record time! Leave it to the dietitian to bring donuts to an event…

Ok back to the donuts…mmm donuts… Can you believe these little ooey gooey pillows of love are completely grain-free?

I am so glad I brought most of mine to the food swap or I would have inhaled them all in less than 24 hours!

These donuts are seriously to die for. Considering donuts are not usually known to be a health food, I would say these tasty treats have more nutritious value than most!

I packaged them up and swapped them for some amazing goodies at the Chicago Food Swap! I came home with spicy pickles, kimchi, cinnamon apple sauce, root beer syrup, two butternut squashes, bacon salt, and some fresh organic duck eggs!

I of course couldn’t give away ALL of my donuts and kept a couple at home for safe keeping. 🙂

Oh yes, and if you live in the Chicagoland area, don’t forget to register for the next Chicago Food Swap on December 7th! If you see me there, please stop by and say hello!
