Recipe of the Week: Chocolate Protein Donuts

IMG_1801

I love making protein donuts – A LOT. I’m also known for them. My coworkers request them, my TIU sisters want me to start delivering them, and my boyfriend loves them.  I have tried, tasted, and altered a dozen recipes. Some of them turn out wonderful, some of them turn out to be disasters I then consume with a spoon. Here is my #1 favorite donut recipe.

Chocolate Protein Donuts

1c almond meal
1/2c chocolate perfect fit protein (or another pea based protein)
1/2c whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbs cacao powder
3 tbs maple syrup
1 egg
1 tbs coconut oil
1/2c water
1/4c almond milk (as needed)

Topping

1/4c chocolate chips or bar
1 tsp coconut oil
drop of vanilla extract

Mix all of the dry ingredients. Mix all of the wet ingredients. Mix both together. Cut a corner off of a baggie and place mixture inside of the baggie. Pipe into greased donut pan. Bake 10-12 minutes in a 350* preheated oven. Melt 1/4c chocolate chips (Update: I have been using 1/4 of an Eating Evolved Signature Bar!), 1 tsp coconut oil, and a drop of vanilla for the topping. Cut a small corner off of a baggie and squeeze topping onto donuts. Keep refrigerated and enjoy! One batch makes 6 donuts.
