Whether it be the Starbucks' infamous PSL or the pumpkin takeover at Trader Joe's, people seem to think that the only fall flavor available is pumpkin spice. I'm here to prove that belief wrong, all while doing it against the grain. These paleo doughnuts are a unique take on the warming spice of ginger. 

Be warned, it is difficult to achieve a fluffy, light texture with certain types of paleo-friendly flour, so these taste more like cake doughnuts than dunkin's. Nevertheless, they remind me of fall just as much as anything with pumpkin spice.
