I love to eat clean but sometimes I am in need of a tasty treat!! These easy to make and healthy protein mini donuts are moist and chocolatey and contain NO SUGAR, NO EGGS, NO OIL, AND NO FLOUR! They are naturally vegan, paleo, and gluten-free. Loaded with protein, healthy fat, antioxidants, and potassium these are FULL of nutrients. Enjoy them as a pre or post workout snack or at anytime of the day!
2 cups mashed banana (about 6 medium, overripe bananas)
1 cup smooth peanut butter (use almond or cashew butter for paleo/low-carb)
½ cup chocolate protein powder (I like Vega Sport)
¼ cup cacao powder
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two mini donut pans or a small 8×8 baking dish. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, nut butter, and whisk until fully combined. Stir in protein powder and cacao powder with a wooden spoon. Pour batter into a greased pan.Bake for 12-20 minutes or until cooked through.
Cool fully before cutting or removing from the pan. These little treats are a lot better fully cooled! Cover the leftovers and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
I added a little icing and toasted coconut to dress these up. To make the icing I took Vega protein powder and added a drizzle of almond milk until I had the consistency I wanted.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!!
