Healthy Double Dark Chocolate Cake Donuts

Healthy Double Dark Chocolate Cake Donuts

 

The last ‘healthy donut’ recipe you will ever need! These double dark chocolate cake donuts are dense, sweet and oh so chocolatey!


 

When I first started to bake with protein powder, I tried every protein donut recipe I could find and every single one was dry and well, tasted a little like cardboard. Yuck! After years of trial and error donut sessions, I finally found my own recipe that works every single time!

 

For super fluffy and dense donuts, there’s a few things you always have to keep in mind.

  1. Never try and make a fat-free donut! This will always result in cardboard donuts–always! This doesn’t mean you have to have deep friend donuts loaded with butter and oil but using almond flour and whole eggs will do the trick. 😉
  2. Use an electric mixer or stand alone mixer (like a Kitchen Aid). I always beat the crap out of my eggs to get a little extra fluff factor in my desserts.
  3. Good quality protein is so important! I always use PEScience which comes in whey and vegan protein powders. Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO at checkout.

 

 

The best part about these donuts are that they get better with age and by that I just mean a day or two in the fridge and these donuts taste amazing. Why not meal prep them?

 

When I was making these donuts I was just planning on loading them up with sprinkles but when I opened my cabinet I found some crushed peanuts and tossed them on too? And then I got to thinking and remembered that I still had cookie dough left over from last week’s recipe. So I chopped some up and rolled them into balls and tossed them on top as well. Patting myself on the back for that one.  You can find the cookie dough recipe link below.

Healthy Double Dark Chocolate Cake Donuts

The ultimate healthy chocolate donut recipe made high in protein, gluten-free and sugar-free!

Ingredients

    Donuts
  • 1/2 c oat flour
  • 1/4 c almond flour, finely ground
  • 1/4 c + 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp special dark unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 packets stevia
  • 32g chocolate protein powder (I used PEScience 30% off code PBCHOCO)
  • 1 egg, whole
  • 1 egg, white
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    Dark Chocolate Glaze
  • 1/3 c sugar-free confectionary sweetener, I used Swerve
  • 16g chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened special dark cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
    Toppings: sprinkles, crushed peanuts, mini chocolate chips, chocolate sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare a standard size donut pan with non-stick spray, be generous.
  2. Place the egg, egg white, milk and pumpkin puree into a mixer and beat until light and fluffy. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix just until combined. You may need to stop and scrape the sides a couple of times.
  3. Place the batter into a large plastic zip-loc bag and cut the corner to create a piping bag. Pipe batter into each donut mold. Mine filled 6 molds exactly.
  4. Bake donuts for 9-10 minutes--don't over bake. Remove from oven and use a spatula or knife just to loosen the sides of the donuts from the pan.
  5. Let donuts cool completely before placing all glaze ingredients into a blender or food processor and blending until smooth. You may need to stop and scrape the bottom and sides a couple of times.
  6. Pour glaze into a shallow bowl and dip each donut into the glaze. Decorate with toppings and place in the freezer or fridge for 10 minutes or glaze to set before serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Nutrition facts DO NOT include toppings.

This super easy Dark Chocolate Banana Bread is extremely moist and made using only  whole food ingredients.

I shared some photos of this banana bread on my Instagram story last week and feedback I got was absolutely overwhelming so thank you for all of your kind words.

This banana bread is perfect in so many ways. For starters, it’s flavored with dark chocolate and who doesn’t love chocolate?

 

There’s added protein powder to kick those macros up a notch and not to mention give it a little extra sweetness without adding refined sugar! Double bonus!

 

 

 

Pro tip: If you want your taste buds to explode from a flavor overload, put Nuts ‘N More Cocoa Hazelnut Spread on your dark chocolate banana bread slice and you will not regret it!
