Blueberry Protein Breakfast Donuts

Everything is better as a donut, right? I recently bought a donut pan and am absolutely loving it. I’ve been making tons of healthy treats and serving them in the form of donuts; which is definitely surprising to my family and friends! These were fabulous. I kept them in the fridge and ate them as a protein snack throughout the week.

  • Lexi – I just made this recipe but used a bundt pan instead (wanted to taste it first before investing in a donut pan!) & I had only chocolate protein powder & used raspberries instead of blueberries. O.M.G.!!
    These are AMAZING!!
    Will definitely keep this in my regular meal plan & just might have to look deeper into that donut pan… 🙂
    PS – was wondering how big your protein powder scoop is – mine is pretty big & wasn’t sure the amount of powder to use.

    • What a great idea Michelle!! So happy you liked. Those really are the perfect little snack! Mine is pretty big too. Probably about 4 tbsp.

  • Just made these today as a pre-workout snack for the rest of the week, amazing! So delicious, perfect balance of sweet and moist. I used Cellucor Whey for an added protein boost, still great!

  • Made 2 batches and neither turned out. First batch over cooked stuck to pan and were dry. Followed recipe to a tee. Second batch, turned down oven to 325 and only cooked for 10 min. Still stuck to pan , looked better but are still pretty dry. Don’t get what’s going wrong.

  • Okay so I love this idea. Is there any way too make them Vegan? I was thinking either add a tad more banana or do a pumpkin variation. (To substitute the egg out)
    **I’m making them for my work friends.
