For those of you who remember, I hadn’t had a real donut in over 13 years.
And for the grammar/spelling police out there, I realize it is actually “doughnuts”, but I am succumbing to societal norms of calling it “donuts” for blog search purposes here.
After my shows, Tony reintroduced me to this wonderful treat.
Things were never the same…
However, there are healthier ways to go about this! That’s where I come in 😉
I’ve made donuts before, but sometimes they come out too dry or dense because of using only protein powder as the base. With a few minor tweaks, these turned out great!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- 75 g of protein powder (approx. 2 & 1/3 scoops)
- 3 Tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cashew milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 6 packets of Stevia in the Raw
Makes 6 donuts
- 1 Tablespoon special dark cocoa powder
- 1 packet of Stevia in the Raw
- 1 teaspoon of water
Frosting is for ONE donut.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix all the donut ingredients together until smooth. Spray your donut pan with a little coconut oil spray and place the mixture in the pan. Bake for approximately 20 minutes.
Let the pan completely cool and remove the donuts. If you choose to do the frosting my tip is to frost as you eat them. They keep better this way. The hint to the frosting is to add a few drops of water to the cocoa and stevia nd mix until clumps form. They WILL form, don’t be fooled. Then slowly add more water drop by drop until you reach a fudge consistency. If you want a thinner, smoother frosting add a few more drops of water.
Add sprinkles as you wish 😉
