Protein Donuts

Protein Donuts

Last Friday was #NationalDonutDay so I thought I would join in on the fun and make some donuts!  I posted them on my Instagram. My donuts were healthy and delicious, not fried and calorie-laden.

I received numerous requests to share my donut recipe, so here it is! I have a donut maker, it is similar to a waffle maker, but in the shape of donuts.  This is what I use to make my donuts tiny and baked perfectly even.  This would also work in a donut pan and cooked in the oven on 350 for 15 minutes or so.

You can get creative with the flavor of protein and frosting combinations that you use. It wasn’t until after I frosted my cupcakes that I decided Quest Peanut Butter protein would have made an incredible frosting and I should have used it!  Next time 😉

Give this a shot and let me know how you like it.  And if you want more quick and easy recipes just like this one, just enter your email address below and I will send you my 10 HEALTHY AND DELICIOUS RECIPES IN 10 MINUTES OR LESS! :)

Now you can enjoy donuts everyday, not just on National Donut Day!



1 Scoop Protein

2 Tbsp Oat Flour

1/8 tsp Baking Soda

1/8 tsp Baking Powder

1 Tbsp Ground Chia Seeds

1/4 C. Water

Sweetener to taste ( I used NuNaturals stevia )

1/2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

Mix all of the above ingredients together in a medium bowl.  Pour into a lightly sprayed donut pan or donut maker.  Bake through.


Mix 1 Scoop Protein (flavor of choice, peanut butter would be amazing)

3 Tbsp Water

1 Tbsp zero calorie sweetener (I used 1 packet NuNaturals stevia)

This will form a creamy frosting when stirred together.  Frost your donuts and garnish with: sprinkles, dark chocolate chips, coconut, cinnamon, chopped nuts, etc.

If you make this recipe, don’t forget to post it on your social media and tag me @christinarico.
