What is better than a protein donut? A COOKIES & CREAM protein donut, donut-cha know? I consistently crave carbs, carbs, carbs, along with chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. So when I created this treat, I was definitely in the mood for a yummy donut! I generally need to incorporate more protein in my plan than I normally eat, so this is a recipe with double the protein, and I’m not complaining about it. Especially when using my absolute FAVOURITE smoothie protein, Women’s Best Cookies and Cream protein powder… hmm just thinking about it makes me want to go make a smooooothiieeeee.
Cash Creations: Cookies & Cream Pronuts
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Total Time out of your life: 30 mins
NEED: Donut Pan (Bulk Barn)
Makes: 6-7 Donuts
- 1/2 cup oat flour
- 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
- 1/3 cup xylitol
- 1/3 cup applesauce
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil (melted)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 maple syrup
Cookies & Cream Icing
- 2 scoops woman’s best protein powder
- 3/4 cup- 1 cup of 2% Greek yogurt (depends on the consistency you’d like)
- Preheat your oven to 350.
- Prepare your donut pan with non-stick spray (I used coconut oil spray).
- In a large bowl, using a whisk, mix your protein powder, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and xylitol. Set-aside for now.
- In a medium sized bowl, mix the egg and applesauce together until fully combined.
- Pour your wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mix together but try not to over mix.
- Spoon your batter into your donut pan filling about ¾ of the way.
- Pop your donut pan into the pre-heated oven for 8-10 min.
- While your donuts are baking mix your icing ingredients together. I like to add in the protein a bit at a time and stir as I go to avoid clumps.
- When ready, remove donuts from pan and place on a wire rack to cool.
- Spread the icing over each donut and add the sprinkles. I like to allow the donuts to set for a while prior to eating them buuutttt they’re basically always good!
**For those that you cannot eat in one sitting, you are able to freeze your donuts with the icing on and they’re still super yummy. I froze some with icing and some without (yesssss I ate the leftover icing). The frozen donuts with the icing were SUPER yummy. Last night I warmed up the non-iced donut in the oven for a few minutes and it literally melted in my mouth. DELISH! Nutrition facts below!
