I was craving something chocolate and my son suggested DOUGHNUTS!!! I never argue with that. LOL. But Of course I had to put my own little spin on it. So these Homemade double chocolate protein doughnuts brought to you courtesy of Audrey, Quin, and Jaxon. Delish!!! Not something you can eat everyday but great for a treat every now and again.
What you Need:
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup chocolate protein powder (I used Beachbody Recovery)
1/2 cup oat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
3 tablespoons Truvia sweetener (or Stevia)
1/2 tsp Cardamom
1/4 tsp Coriander
1/8 tsp Himalayan Salt
¼ cup egg whites (about 3 egg whites. Do Not use whites from a carton)
1 tablespoon unrefined coconut oil, melted
1-2 tbsp raw organic Honey (Add more or less to taste)
1/3 cup water (add more if needed)
If you don’t have coriander and don’t ever plan on ever purchasing it just up the cardamom to 3/4 tsp.
¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (We used enjoy life brand)
2 teaspoons unsweetened coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
What to do:
Preheat oven to 325. Mix all dry ingredients together in medium mixing bowl. Add egg whites, coconut oil & honey, stirring until well-combined. You can add a tad more or less water to achieve desired batter consistency which should be fairly thick. Mist mini donut pan with baking spray. Fill each mold 1/2 full with batter with a spoon or you can use a Ziploc bag to “pipe” it in. Bake 8 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
In small microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate chips 30 seconds at a time. Stir in between until completely melted and smooth. Stir in milk and vanilla. While glaze is still warm, dunk tops of each donut in glaze or drizzle across the tops with a spoon. We used a basting tool to get the fun lines. Add some sprinkles on top for added fun!
Makes 12 mini donuts.
