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!
