Protein Donuts

This is my second attempt at making donuts. I am NOT a donut connoisseur. In fact, I have not had a donut in over 20 years. They just aren’t really my thing. But, I love playing around in the kitchen. I should probably just called these donut shaped protein snacks because I’m not even sure how donut like they are!  Consider this your warning! I do however really like them. They are light, moist and fluffyish =).

If make these let me know and tag me in your pictures!!

Time: 10 minutes to prep/ 10 minutes to bake
Yields: 12 donuts

Macros: 4.5c/2f/6p (this is without jam, chocolate or any toppings)
Calories: 57


3 tbsp powdered PB2 peanut butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1 raw egg
1 egg white
1.5 tsp truvia
1 tsp cocoa (add more if you want it to be chocolatey)
1.5 scoops Optimum Nutrition vanilla protein powder
1/2 a small avocado
1/2 c 0% plain greek yogurt (I used Liberte)
1/2 c unsweetened almond milk
1.5 tsp baking powder


1. Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend till smooth. Batter should be thick (not runny) but easy to pour.

2. Pour batter into donut pan. (I just got a Wilton non stick donut pan that doesn’t need greasing!!)

3. If you want to add nuts, chocolate, coconut sprinkles to your entire recipe, fold in those ingredients before pouring your batter. OR if you want them to be all different, pour the batter then add things to the tops of each donut before baking. I added coconut flakes and chocolate chips. For a couple of my donuts I even added the shredded coconut to the pan before pouring the batter (these are the donuts that have the white ring in the middle of them..on either side of the one with chocolate chips)

4.Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean


After baking I like to microwave jam till it melts and spread it on the tops of the donuts or add some E. D. Smith no sugar added syrup with walnuts =) yum!
