Cinnamon Sugar Protein Donuts

by Brooke Goldstein August 22, 2016

  • 1 cup vanilla whey protein powder
  • ¼ cup coconut flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened applesauce 
  • dash nutmeg
  • dash cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons erythritol
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 325F (163C).
  2. Combine the donut ingredients (not including the coating), and mix well.
  3. Spoon into a ziplock bag, and cut off the corner to pipe these into your silicone donut pan.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes, and check to see if they are firm. If not, check every 1-2 minutes. Do not overbake! Whey cake can be very dry if it is overbaked.
  5. Remove from oven, and let cool. Then remove from pan.
  6. Mix erythritol and cinnamon in a bowl.
  7. Brush each donut with melted coconut oil (to make the coating stick), and dip into the coating.
  8. Enjoy! Donuts can stay out for the day, but refrigerate for longer storage.
