baked pumpkin spice donut holes

I started a new diet a few weeks ago.

It's called The Don't Eat Crappy Food, Drink Lots of Water and Exercise Your Butt Off Plan.

I lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

And then I found this recipe and made 2 batches this weekend. I'm pretty sure I found those pounds again.

It was kinda sorta worth it because these little pumpkin spice donut holes are delightful. Light and fluffy. Just the right amount of pumpkiny spicy goodness.

I ate 6 out of the first batch. Danny ate 5. I figure since they're smallish, it would take 3 of them to equal a regular sized muffin. So really I only ate 2 muffins. That's not so horrible. Six sounds bad though.

I couldn't help myself. They were warm and that buttery coating that makes the cinnamon sugar mixture stick is oh, so good. And buttery. And cinnamony. And sugary.

I'm not really sure they count as donut holes though. You bake them in mini muffin pans and they come out looking like mini muffins. Whatever. I don't let the name bother me. They're good.

I shared with my neighbor to try to get a few of them out of my house.

I slapped some BYU stickers around the edge of the plate. I may or may not have written some dumb football related remark on the bottom of the plate wherein I substituted the word don't for donut. I'm not telling. It might have been pretty cheesy but my creativity is waning.

But sadly for me, my appetite for these little gems is not.

Maybe next batch (because I'm sure there will be a next batch...lots of pumpkin leftover in the fridge) I'll toss in a few mini chocolate chips.

Get thee hence, Satan!!! I am so fat already and trying desperately to be good. And now this...sigh. There's always January, right?

That's what I say every year. What would we do without January?
