These easy to make protein mini donuts are soooo good! They are rich and chocolately with a silky texture that almost melts in your mouth! Loaded with protein, healthy fat and antioxidants, they are FULL of healthy ingredients and free from refined sugar, oil, or flour. Oh and don’t worry, you can make these into brownies if you don’t have a donut pan!! They are a prefect healthy treat for satisfying a sweet tooth!!!
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!!
