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 Baked Blueberry Protein Donuts with Blueberry-Vanilla Glaze.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c brown rice flour or gluten-free oat flour
  • 32g vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tbsp baking stevia or coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 egg or flax egg for vegan
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 c frozen blueberries
    Blueberry Glaze
  • 1/4 c frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 c +2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 32g vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar-free confectioners sugar (I used Swerve)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare your standard donut mold with non-stick spray and be generous.
  2. Place your egg, baking stevia, applesauce and almond milk into a mixer and beat until fluffy. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, protein, baking powder and soda. Add your dry ingredients into the mixer and stir until combined. Fold in frozen blueberries.
  3. Fill 5 donut molds with batter. Bake donuts for 11-12 minutes. Remove from oven and then let them cool completely.
  4. While donuts are cooling, you are going to make your blueberry glaze. Place the frozen blueberries, 2 tablespoons water and lemon juice into a small pan or pot over medium heat for 2 minutes or until colors start to burst.
  5. Remove from heat and pour contents into a blender. Add the melted coconut oil and 1/4 cup water into blender and blend on high until smooth. Add in protein powder and sugar-free confetioners sugar and blend again until smooth. Pour contents into a shallow bowl and let sit for a few minutes to cool.
  6. Dip donuts into glaze and serve.
