The taste and texture of these donuts are spot on! If you're going to try one donut recipe, this is it! Glazed Protein Donuts Recipe
This deliciousness is by Kyla at @kylas.macrofood.life. Look at that fluffy texture! She made them with Angel Food Cake flavored protein powder and stevia-sweetened flavor powder. Topped with Froot Loops cereal, too, for a little crunch!
These decadent treats aren't made with any protein powder, but still have 6.5 g protein each! They are sweetened with a monkfruit erythritol blend, both natural calorie-free sweeteners. Paige of Food Fitness by Paige whipped these delicious donuts up!
Sarah at Nutritionist Mom is a whiz in the kitchen! These vegan protein donuts are made with soy isolate protein powder and a monkfruit erythritol sweetener blend. Instead of egg, these donuts use soaked flax seeds (a "flax egg" mixture). And they look delicious!
These heavenly donuts are made with Quest protein powder, which is great for baking!
Oh how heavenly! Sarah is killing it with this vegan protein donut recipe! She used Livwell protein, but I think this from Orgain would work just as well. These are sweetened with a stevia erythritol blend and use a touch of Vitafiber syrup, as well. These make you want to bite the screen, don't they?!
Topping cake donuts with a cinnamon erythritol blend is everything! This recipe is super yummy. Give it a try!
Sarah created these with a chocolate whey casein blend, and they look scrumptious!
Perfect for fall baking! These protein cake donuts are super easy to make, thanks to Proteinfull Baking keto-friendly cake mix, and they are super yummy!
This yummy creation by Food Fitness by Paige is made with real maple syrup in the donut batter and in the topping. It also calls for yeast, which helps the fluffy texture. And there's no actual brown sugar in the recipe, just the flavor!
Another recipe by Sarah- Holy PB&J! This recipe uses vanilla whey and peanut protein that are now discontinued. But that's ok! Go with vanilla whey protein and powdered peanut butter, easy to sub. I can't get over how scrumptious these look!
Don't you just want to bite the screen? Yum! These are made with a vegan chocolate protein powder, and they look delicious!
How can we resist the chocolate peanut butter combo? These are made with peanut butter cup protein powder, and we can't wait to try them!
Another yeasted protein donut recipe, this one without any syrup or liquid sweeteners. Made with Quest protein (and lots of love) by Paige.
This is a recipe I created with Quest vanilla protein, and my favorite part is the caramel layer made from mashed dates. It's a longer ingredient list than most of my recipes, but there are lots of layers to this deliciousness!
