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!

  • 1/4 c +2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar replacement such as Swerve or coconut sugar
  • 1 egg, whole
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    Glaze
  • 1/2 c sugar-free confectionary sweetener, I used Swerve
  • 2 tsp matcha green tea powder

  • 1 tbsp cocao nibs

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare a standard donut mold with non-stick spray.
  2. Place the eggs, pumpkin, almond milk and granulated sugar into a mixer and beat until fluffy.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together the flours, protein, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder.
  4. Add the dry ingredients into the mixer until combined.
  5. Pour your ingredients into a large plastic bag and cut the corner to create a piping bag. Pipe the donut batter into each mold. Mine filled up exactly 6 molds.
  6. Bake donuts for 11-12 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool. Once cooled, place all glaze ingredients into a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour glaze into a shallow bowl. Dip each donut into the glaze and place on a wire wrack. Once all donuts are covered in the glaze, sprinkle with cocoa nibs if desired. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes for glaze to set before serving.

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 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.
