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.
- 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. 😉
- 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.
- 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.
