Easy 7-Ingredient Chocolate Protein Donuts
Posted on March 29 2021
These are not only super easy to make, but you probably have everything on hand already. Super delicious, yet healthy enough to eat for breakfast (donuts for breakfast? YEP).
They are vegan, gluten & grain-free (the Chocolate Plant Protein acts as the flour), high in complete plant protein, super chocolatey, and quite satisfying. Great for a quick breakfast, healthy afternoon snack or even a treat in school lunches.
They take about 10 minutes to whip up and only 15 minutes to bake. If you are using the optional glaze, you will need to let them cool before you drizzle. It does add a bit of sugar, so feel free to leave the glaze off - they taste just as good without!
Best 7-Ingredient Chocolate Protein Donuts
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 TBSP maple syrup
3 scoops Niyama Chocolate Plant Protein
1 tsp baking powder
2 TBSP raw cocoa powder
pinch of sea salt
1 TBPS plant milk (if needed)
3-4 TBSP icing sugar
1 TBSP water
Option Icing/Glaze for Drizzling
Preheat your oven to 325F
In a medium bowl, mash bananas well, then add in maple syrup and mix well
Add in all your dry ingredients (baking powder, protein, cocoa, salt, stirring as you go until combined. If you can't quite get all the dry to combine, add a TBSP plant milk to get all the dry ingredients absorbed. Sometimes you need this step, sometimes not; it depends on the ripeness and size of the bananas. Your batter should be somewhere between thick brownie batter and cookie dough.
Using your hands, push the batter/dough into your donut pan - mine are non-stick, if yours aren't then ensure you oil them first. I get 5 donuts out of this recipe, and my donut molds were just shy of full.
Bake for 15 minutes, check them and add another minute or two if not set.
Turn out onto a cooling rack for 10-15 minutes. Make the drizzle if using - place icing sugar in a small bowl and slowly adding the water as you stir. You want it thick and white looking, but thin enough to drizzle thickly.
Drizzle the icing (if using) and let set for 10 minutes - Enjoy!
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
