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!

Glazed Snickerdoodle Protein Donuts

IMG_9689[1]

When it comes to protein powders, I usually stick with the traditional vanilla or chocolate flavors. This time I decided to venture out a bit…and I am so glad I did! PEScience Select Protein makes an incredible casein/whey blend that’s perfect to bake with. It’s not as “chalky” tasting as most other protein powders on the market or maybe I’m just use to that taste :P. Either way, these donuts turned out truly amazing and the glaze takes them to an entirely new level of deliciousness that I didn’t even know existed.

You can bake them, frost them and eat them in under 20 minutes. Perfect for a pre-gym snack! Oh, the wonders of protein powder.

Recipe

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 325f. Mix all dry donut ingredients together. Add egg whites and milk and mix until well combined. Mix in melted coconut butter. Scoop mixture evenly into 4 standard donut molds (silicone molds work well). Bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove from molds and let cool while you prepare the glaze. (If you absolutely can’t wait for them to cool, place them in the freezer for a couple of minutes to speed the process!) Mix together glaze ingredients and spoon over donuts. Place in the freezer for 2 minutes to harden the glaze a bit. Enjoy!
