Ever make a recipe and surprise yourself with just how good it comes out? That’s what happened with these Glazed Protein Donuts. “Wow!” I kept saying. You must try these!

I made them with Proteinfull Baking’s Classic Yellow Cake Mix, which has 15g protein per serving. I added a dash of nutmeg (not optional!) and glazed them with a mix of coconut oil and confectioners erythritol. The icing drizzle on top is confectioners erythritol with water. So easy!

The added nutmeg really does help them taste like donuts, so I highly recommend using it.

I used this donut pan, but there seem to be many options on Amazon, especially in silicone.
