The Best Protein Powder Donuts
If you are anything like me, you occasionally get sick of protein shakes and look for other ways to boost your protein. I like to eat lots of protein with breakfast, so finding ways to add protein powder to my favorite breakfast recipes is usually where I start. I have made everything from protein powder oatmeal to protein powder waffles.
One day, I was craving something sweet, so I tweaked the family donut recipe by adding a serving of protein powder. I was nervous, but what came out of the oven was delicious! My protein donuts were light, fluffy, and kept me full until lunch. This recipe is a great way to meet your protein goals without relying on your blender.
DAIRY-FREE MILK POWDERS
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome chocolate protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how many rock-hard donuts are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
