Blueberry Protein Donuts with IdealShake

blueberry-donut

Last week’s Carrot Cake Protein Cupcakes were so unbelievably good we couldn’t resist another healthy baked treat: Blueberry Protein Donuts. We love adding protein to our treats because it’s nutritious and filling, so you can get away with having just one. 😉

A healthy donut that happens to be delicious? Let’s just say, they’re so good that when Lizzy brought a batch into the IdealShape office… they were gone before anyone could blink. (Guilty.)

Whip out your donut pan and try this healthy donut recipe for yourself!

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 scoop vanilla IdealShake
  • 1/2 cup almond flour/meal
  • 1 tbsp. fat-free cottage cheese
  • 1-1.5 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

Makes 3 large donuts or 6-8 mini donuts

One large donut (without white chocolate): 260 calories; 14g protein; 10g carbs; 2g sugar

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together (don’t mix too much or donuts will not rise properly), put mixture into 3 of the donut pan holes or into 6-8 of the mini donut pan holes.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 min or until toothpick comes out clean.

After donuts have cooled, dip or drizzle with melted white chocolate.

And voila: you can now use “healthy” and “donuts” in the same sentence!
