Vanilla Cinnamon Protein Donuts
I seriously love breakfast.
But to be honest with you, I am not someone who craves the “standard” breakfast foods first thing in the morning (eggs, toast, bacon, etc.).
Lets be honest though…eating the same thing every single day can get a little old after awhile, so in an attempt to switch things up a bit, I stumbled upon (and modified) this recipe for VEGAN VANILLA CINNAMON DONUTS!
As someone who eats a clean diet (most of the time) and prioritizes eating a healthy balance of ALL MACROS, these donuts paired with a side of fruit and Greek yogurt (or cottage cheese) HAVE IT ALL.
They taste like straight up cake, are packed with protein and are so easy to make, I am sure they will become a regular feature on my weekly meal prep lineup!
SKILL LEVEL: Easy
MAKES: 6 Donuts
½ cup almond flour
½ cup vanilla plant-based protein powder (I swear by Orgain!)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1⁄4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1⁄4 cup unrefined coconut sugar
1 flax egg (1 TBS flax seed + 3 TBS water)
1 TBS melted coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.
Spray a donut pan with oil spray and add batter. You can buy a two pack of pans on Amazon for cheap :-)
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Eat and enjoy!
Substitute the vanilla protein powder for your favorite flavors (chocolate, peanut butter, etc.)
Drizzle donuts with honey, maple syrup, peanut butter, jam/jelly, etc.
The options are endless ;)
I want to hear from YOU! Let me know what your favorite kind of donut is, and what variations you are looking forward to trying!
