Super Chocolatey Protein Donuts (Gluten and Sugar-Free!)

I went on a mission to make protein donuts and you guys…I did it.

Donuts are sooo good but I can’t tolerate them very often (unless you want to meet bloated, grumpy Cassey!). I really wanted to create a donut that still tastes like the real thing, but without some of the ingredients my body doesn’t love. While I was at it, I boosted them with protein.

I played around with other flavor combos (because of the whole supertaster, not a fan of chocolate thing), and they were all super yummy. But when given a taste test, Sam and my friends said the chocolate version was the best, so that’s the recipe I’ll share with you.

What you’ll need to make protein donuts

Almond flour is my favorite swap for regular flour, so that’s what I used here to make these gluten-free! Gluten always makes me super bloated, so this was a must.

Next, I used my Sculpt & Debloat Chocolate Protein Powder for a rich cocoa flavor and boost of protein.

Monk fruit sweetener is my go-to swap for sugar. I love it because it’s a 1:1 swap – so easy!

Don’t be afraid to try other flavors, especially if chocolate isn’t really your thing like me! Use the Sweet Cream protein powder instead of chocolate and leave out the cocoa, and you have kind of a blank slate. Play around and report back with your creations.
