When I first started making protein donuts, a reader wrote in to ask for old-fashioned sour cream protein donuts. I had never heard of a sour cream donut, but I’m always up for a challenge! Since I didn’t actually use sour cream in this recipe (Greek yogurt does the trick!) I’m calling these sourdough. And here you have Glazed Sourdough Protein Donuts!


I used Jamie Eason’s Vanilla whey protein here. Some protein powders bake better than others, and this is one of my favorites to bake with! The flavor and texture are really great with baked recipes.

And I’ve used this silicone donut pan. It’s a nice size, and it worked well!


To get the sour cream taste with better macros, I used non-fat Greek yogurt. This substitution also works well with my Aunt Chubby’s Protein Cheesecake recipe!

The donuts alone are nice, but with the glaze they are just amazing! I definitely did not share any of these Glazed Sourdough Protein Donuts. :)

I’ve been a little behind on fulfilling reading request recipes, and I’m trying to make up for that now. Lots of great recipes to come!

  7. Mix glaze ingredients, and pour over donuts.
  8. Place dish in the refrigerator to set the glaze.
  9. Enjoy!
A note about substitutions: because each type of protein powder has a distinct flavor and texture when baked, I would not try substituting different types of protein powders (other than whey) in this recipe. (See my Recipe Basics video for examples of what goes wrong when you use the wrong protein powder.)

If you include the carbs of erythritol (a natural, zero-calorie sweetener), it adds approx. 4g per donut but does not change the calories.
