Chocolate Protein Donuts with Matcha Chocolate Chip Glaze

 

Super Healthy High Protein Chocolate Donuts with Matcha Chocolate Chip Glaze made Gluten-Free!

 


 

Matcha + Chocolate. Who knew that was a winning combination?! I surely didn’t. This morning I had my mind set on making plain old chocolate cake donuts unsure of how or what I would top them with. While the donuts were in the oven, I searched my cabinet for some sort of inspiration. In the corner I found two green tea matcha packets I forgot I even had. Win!

 

 

This matcha glaze not only tastes amazing, it’s also amazing for you! Double win!

Healthy Blueberry Baked Donuts

 

My greatest kitchen investment is hands down my Wilton donut mold pan; which really isn’t an “investment” at all because I got it for like fifteen bucks on amazon. Needless to say I have more than baked my money’s worth of donuts in that thing.

 


 

If you have never tried a Healthy Baked Low Carb Protein Donut before then you are really in for treat! These little blueberry cakes were made using whole food ingredients like brown rice flour which you can also sub for oat flour if needed. I bake a lot with brown rice flour because it’s not as expensive as other “healthy” flours–and when you bake as much as I do, those couple of dollars matter!

 

I also used PEScience Select Protein because it’s my favorite protein powder on the market and quality protein makes a huge difference when you are baking. When I first started creating recipes, I would buy the cheapest protein I could find… big mistake! Poor quality protein will leave you with a rubbery texture and an overpowering flavor. So a good quality protein powder will make a huge¬†difference–just trust! PEScience is amazing and gives my readers 30% OFF all PEScience products using code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website PEScience.com! Yay!

Healthy Lemon Blueberry Donut Cakes

These healthy lemon blueberry treats are round like donuts yet taste like sweet delicious cakes. Okay, okay, maybe I tried to make donuts and filled the donut pan a little too full and the donut hole disappeared turning them into little cakes. No holes in these donuts means there’s a perfect spot to load your donut up with fruit or ice cream, although I prefer and recommend the latter.

 


 

Unlike most protein cake, these don’t lack moisture and still taste great the next day!

Healthy Pumpkin French Toast with Vanilla Maple Drizzle

I woke up this morning and decided there was nothing else I needed besides pumpkin French toast and a few cups of coffee, of course.


 

I made this delicious French toast using my favorite multi-grain sprouted bread from Trader Joe’s. I didn’t count up these calories for you because of how much¬†it will very depending on the bread you use.

 

pumpkin-french-toast

 

I drizzled my pumpkin French toast with a vanilla maple sauce and it’s to die for. I mixed together vanilla protein powder, sugar free maple syrup and water.

I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select protein for the vanilla maple sauce to sweeten it without having to add sugar and it worked like a charm! Yay! Get 30% OFF all PEScience products using code PBCHOCO.

Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats

There is no shortage of oats in my house. In fact, I have oats just about every day. If I’m not making pancakes or cookies using oat flour then I’m prepping myself overnight oats to eat for breakfast when I am on the go. Like when I have to be up for work at 3:30 in the morning, overnight oats save me because the first thing I want to do in the morning is eat and the last thing I want to do is make myself breakfast. Ya feel?

 

I usually go for the simple kind: oats, milk, chocolate protein powder and cocoa powder. Occasionally, I will throw in some chia seeds or flax for a little fiber. Today, I decided to spice up my oat flavor a bit and made Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats – complete with apple chunks and cinnamon sticks.

Healthy Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donuts

Do you love pumpkin?¬† Of course, you do. Who doesn’t?¬† Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that doesn’t love pumpkin.

 

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a total basic girl and when September rolls around, it’s pumpkin spice everything for me! I literally cannot get enough of it so today I made pumpkin donuts. They are healthy, of course and made with protein powder and whole food ingredients.


Pumpkin-Donuts     Pumpkin-Donuts3     Pumpkin-Donuts2

They are perfect just as they are without any icing or cinnamon sugar. I had one like this and dipped it in my coffee… OMG. TO DIE FOR!

 

Pumpkin-Donuts4

 

Dipping them in a cinnamon sugar mix is not such a bad idea either!

 

Pumpkin-Donuts7

Using Snickerdoodle flavored protein powder tastes the best when baking with pumpkin. Although, a simple vanilla flavor will work, I highly recommend SNICKERDOODLE PEScience Select Protein! Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO.
