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!
