So the doughnuts were a hit, so much so that when I went to glaze them, they were gone. I plan on making more tomorrow and a few chocolate ones too. Eva asked for some ordinary non protein doughnuts so tomorrow could be a busy day.
If you want to make your own lemon raspberry protein doughnuts, here’s what you’ll need.
3 scoops of protein powder (my powder has 20g of protein a scoop)
1/2 cup of ground almonds
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 whole eggs and 4 egg whites (beaten)(or use 3 whole eats but changes the nutrition!)
1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
Juice of half a lemon and zest of half a lemon
2 tbsp of coconut oil or butter
3/4 cup of raspberries (I used fresh but you could use frozen)
Mix above together other than raspberries. The mix will be runny. Fold in the raspberries at the end. Divide into a 6 ring doughnut pan and bake for 15 minutes or until golden at 350 degrees.
Glaze (tastes so delicious)
1 tbsp of melted coconut butter, the juice of the other half of the lemon and maple syrup to taste (I used a teaspoon of syrup). Glaze the doughnuts.
I can’t wait to try my glaze on a doughnut tomorrow.
