’tis the season for pumpkin spice to move over for Peppermint flavored erryytthhiinnggg.

Tanner and I had a rough week, so we heard homemade donuts make things better, right?

The work week hustle is real; school drop-offs and pick-ups, packing lunches and making breakfast and dinner, bedtimes and bathtime and Christmas concerts and school parties…phew. TGI Saturday.

This new donut recipe is filled with all sorts of healthy ingredients; vital proteins collagen, peppermint tea, organic coconut butter, and love. From our kitchen to yours, we hope you enjoy!
