Here's a recipe for high protein, homemade donuts to satisfy your cravings.

By Spencer Miller, The Macro Chef

Donuts
½ cup (60g) all purpose flour
1 scoop (35g) XTEND® Pro Cookie Butter protein powder
2 tbsp (20g) Truvia® Sweetener*
1 tsp (5g) baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 whole egg
½ cup (120g) plain, nonfat Greek yogurt**
2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or preferred milk)
2 crushed biscoff cookies (for mixing into batter)


Glaze
1 scoop (35g) XTEND® Pro Cookie Butter protein powder
2 tbsp (28g) light butter, melted
1 tbsp (10g) Truvia® Sweetener*
4 crushed Biscoff ® cookies (for topping)


Notes
*Truvia® sweetener is calorie free and sweeter than sugar. If you use a sweetener that measures 1:1 with sugar, use 40g since the Truvia is twice as sweet.
**If you don’t like the tang of Greek yogurt, an equal amount of canned pumpkin, mashed banana, or applesauce.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Add flour, protein powder, sweetener, baking powder and salt to a bowl. Mix. Add wet ingredients (egg, greek yogurt, and milk) to the bowl. Gently stir until a smooth batter forms.
  3. Fold in crushed biscoff cookies. Spray a donut pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add batter to a ziploc/piping bag. Cut the end off and pipe donut batter into each of the spots in the donut pan.
  4. Bake at 350F for 8 minutes. Do NOT overbake or they will dry out. Once baked, let cool while you make the glaze.
  5. Add protein powder, melted butter, and sweetener to a bowl. Mix until a smooth glaze forms. Crush biscoff cookies and place in a small bowl.
  6. Dip each cooled donut in glaze then in crushed biscoff cookies. Enjoy!
