10th September 2015

If you love your doughnuts, but aren't so keen on the ingredients, then there is a slightly less naughty way to enjoy them. Introducing these delicious glazed Protein Doughnuts, made as healthy and as nutritious as can possibly be.

At just 172 calories per doughnut, these are the perfect treat to satisfy those sweet cravings when trying to maintain a healthy and balanced diet.

Ingredients:

Doughnut

3/4 Cup Coconut Flour

1/2 Cup GN Whey Protein 80 (Vanilla)

1/3 Teaspoon Bicarbonate Soda

Pinch Himalayan Pink Salt

2 Tablespoons Honey

2.5 Tablespoons Grass-Fed Butter (Melted)

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1 Teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar

2 Eggs (Separated)

Glaze 1/2 Cup Medjool Dates (Soaked in 1 Cup Hot Water For At Least An Hour)

1 1/2 Tablespoons Melted Coconut Oil

1 Tablespoon Whey More Nuts (Cinnamon Spice)

2 Cups Water

Pinch Himalayan Pink Salt

Method:

Doughnut

1. To make your doughnuts, start by preheating the oven to 170C, then grease a doughnut tin with butter or coconut oil

2. In a bowl, mix together the coconut flour, protein powder, bicarb and the pinch of salt

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, melted butter (ensure it's cool or else it will scramble the eggs), vanilla, apple cider vinegar and egg yolks. Stir into the dry mix until combined

Glaze

1. In another bowl, beat together the egg whites with an electric mixer until firm peaks form. (As a tip, ensure your bowl and mixer is incredibly clean and dry and there are no traces of yolk in the mix, else the whites won't foam properly). Gently fold into the doughnut batter until combined

2. Spoon the mixture into your prepared doughnut tin, ensuring you don't make it more than 3/4s full, else it will overfill and you won't get doughnut holes.

3. Place in the oven and bake for 11-14 minutes, or until golden. Leave to cool, before removing from the tin

4. For the caramel glaze, blitz together all ingredients in a high-powered blender with 1/3 cup of the water the dates had soaked in. Add more water if needed and blend until smooth

5. Drizzle over the doughnuts and top with nuts if desired
