Vanilla donut:



  • Preheat oven to 325F (163C).
  • Mix protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder, and nutmeg until well combined.
  • Add egg whites and coconut oil, and mix well.
  • Spoon the batter into a ziplock bag, and cut off a corner.
  • Pipe batter into a silicone mini donut pan.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, and see if the donuts are firm. If not, check every 1-2 minutes and remove from oven as soon as they are firm.
  • Let cool slightly, and remove donuts from pan. (Feel free to pop the pan in the fridge or freezer to speed this up!)
  • Set the donuts in the freezer while you mix the glaze ingredients. (The cooler the donuts are, the better they will take the glaze.)
  • Using a fork, dip each donut in the glaze, and make sure it is covered by turning it over in the glaze. Lift the fork and let excess glaze drip off the donut.
  • Place glazed donuts on a parchment-lined dish or tray.
  • Once donuts are glazed, set the tray in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes to help set the glaze.
  • If you have extra glaze, give the donuts a second coating.
  • Once the glaze is cool and set, serve and enjoy! Store in the refrigerator.
