Pumpkin Spice Donuts w/ Maple Glaze & Bacon

Fall is officially in the air here in Southern California (a whopping 70 degrees today) and anytime our temps finally start to drop after a long hot Summer, you can rest assured that I start stocking up on all things pumpkin!  I bought 4 cans just last week for recipes swirling around in my head.  Nothing says Fall quite like pumpkin right?  And since weekends were made specifically for donuts it was the perfect time to also bring out my handy dandy mini maker and get going on those Fall flavors!

I woke up this morning with 2 things on my mind…

#1 a breakfast that included a combination of pumpkin & bacon

#2 I was going to absolutely destroy legs today with my husband

First things first, need to fuel my body with #1 in order to achieve #2!

This is what happened this morning.

 One of the best breakfast’s I have had in awhile…. these were kind of ridiculous.  Each nibble was a party in my mouth.  The perfect bite of sweet & salty, packed full of protein and the proper fuel to crush leg day.  Holy YUM!  I ate all 14 mini guys on my own like a champ.

After I killed these, I set a new PR on leg press… 6 plates (45lbs each) + the machine (45lbs) for a total of= 315 pounds.  All thanks to my pumpkin maple bacon donuts.  That’s what did it folks.  Surely a 100 pound, 5′ 0″ tall girl could not do that without donuts right?  Nope, don’t think so.  It’s the power of the donut people.  Give them a try and see what your body can do!
