Ingredients for Protein Donut (makes 6 total):
45g PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select Protein
15g Coconut Flour
5g Zero Cal Sweetener of your choice
5g Baking Powder
70g Greek Yogurt
70g Unsweetened Apple Sauce
75g Egg Whites
Protein Frosting Recipe for all 6 Donuts:
20g PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select Protein
6g Coconut Flour
45g Greek Yogurt
3g Zero Cal Sweetener of your choice Cold Water to consistency of frosting
Directions: 1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Now add your dry donut ingredients into a bowl (except for your sprinkles) and mix to avoid clumping. Do the same with your weight ingredients in a separate bowl. Now combine dry with wet and mix till you have a thick batter like consistency. Now add your sprinkles into your batter and mix those in.
2.) Now take your donut pan (I have a wilton 6 cavity one off amazon) and spray each donut mold with non stick butter spray. Add your batter evenly into all 6 molds. Add to oven and bake for 10 minutes. Once done, pop out carefully and let cool for an hour or so on a cooling rack till at room temp. The reason you want the donuts to cool is because otherwise your frosting/ glaze mixture will be runny and messy once you put it on if the donuts are hot when you add it.
3.) While those are cooling, make up your protein frosting by adding all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mixing to avoid clumping. Then add your 45g of your greek yogurt and mix in the best you can. Then add cold water 10ml at a time and mix till you have a nice frosting like consistency. Add to fridge to keep cool while donuts are cooling.
4.) Once donuts are cool, add your frosting on top, whatever toppings your heart desires and then enjoy these heavenly donuts!
