Chocolate Dipped Protein Donuts
ALL YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
Whole wheat baking flour: Can sub for all-purpose flour, GF flour, or blended oat flour.
Coconut flour: This recipe can be used without coconut flour, but I added for more of a cake-like taste and texture.
AstroFlav Chocolate IsoMix: Chocolate works best for chocolate dipped, but you can used vanilla as well!
Cocoa powder: Unsweetened and sifted to ensure there are no clumps.
SF Maple syrup: I used sugar-free, but you can use regular or honey to add sweetness to the donuts.
Coconut oil: Any neutral-flavored oil will work. Coconut oil fit well with the coconut flour.
Almond milk: I used unsweetened almond milk, but coconut or soy are both great.
KITCHEN EQUIPMENT REQUIRED FOR THIS RECIPE
Metal or silicon donut tray
Piping bag or gallon Ziplock bag
TIPS FOR CREATING PROTEIN DONUTS
If you do not have a donut pan, you can adjust the bake time and use a muffin pan instead.
I used a metal donut pan, but a silicon pan can work just as well!
Combine all dry ingredients before adding wet ingredients. This will allow the mixture to be evenly distributed and no clumps.
You can freeze these donuts before decorating! When you are ready to enjoy, remove and thaw from the freezer and dip into glaze and decorate with sprinkles if desired.
Make sure to spray the donut pan very well so the donuts can be easily removed after they are baked.
Chocolate Dipped Protein Donuts
3/4 cup whole wheat baking flour (or all purpose)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 scoop AstroFlav Chocolate IsoMix
2 TBS cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup maple syrup (I used sugar-free)
3 TBS coconut oil (or butter)
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 TBS cocoa powder
1/2 scoop Chocolate IsoMix
2 TBS SF maple syrup
3-4 TBS unsweetened almond milk
Preheat the oven to 325F and lightly grease the donut pan with olive oil spray.
Add flour, protein powder, baking soda, and salt to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
Add in the maple syrup, coconut oil, almond milk, egg, and vanilla, and stir until smooth and no lumps remain.
Add the batter to a piping or large ziplock bag with the corner cut.(You can also spoon the batter into the pan but the piping makes a rounder edge).
Bake for 10 minutes, then let cool.
Remove the donuts from the donut pan and dip into chocolate glaze. Immediately top with sprinkles to ensure they stick!
Whole wheat flour: All-purpose flour, GF flour, blended oat flour will all work
Almond milk: Can substitute almond milk with dairy milk, coconut, soy, or oat milk.
SF maple syrup: Swap for regular maple syrup or honey
Chocolate IsoMix: Swap chocolate with vanilla to make vanilla dipped donuts!
