A baked donut that you can whip up in 10 minutes flat to satisfy your donut craving in the healthiest most wholesome way possible. The protein icing is really what makes these donuts shine!
I haven’t made donuts in forever but I was spurred on by a big donut fan over on Instagram to make something to fit her macros. I was actually delighted with how these turned out. Firm yet sweet and soft with a deliciously sweet peanut butter protein icing. It’s the protein icing that really makes them… they aren’t close to a real deal donut but they will definitely curb a sweet tooth and give you that feeling or indulging. These are positively saintly and could easily be served up for breakfast, or as a handy little pre workout snack!
What’s your favourite donut flavour? It’s been so long since I had a donut… ring donuts with icing were always my favourite. Peanut butter and chocolate has to be my favourite flavour combination!
