High Protein Funfetti Donuts (Grain Free + Keto Friendly)

I'll probably be in the minority once I say this but...

I don't like donuts.

I'm not sure when my taste buds flipped, but they did a total 180 on me - because I definitely loved donuts as a kid. Not so much anymore. It doesn't matter where the donut comes from, who makes it, or how legendary they are. If they're fried, I can ALWAYS taste the grease. For me, it overpowers the flavors and the sugar.

At this point, I've spit out enough single bites to know that I'm better off just avoiding them - unless they're baked. 

I loooooooove baked donuts. And when they're packed with protein, even better. So if you're looking for a more macro-friendly version of a donut, you can get your hole foods fix with this recipe!

By the way - you can definitely eat these for breakfast and not feel guilty. #spokenfromexperience

This recipe is also considered low carb, keto friendly and grain-free. I'm not doing keto, or grain-free, just sharing because I know those are very popular dietary options right now :)

High Protein Funfetti Donut Ingredients (Yields 6)
+ 2 scoops vanilla casein protein (I use Kaged Kasein in Vanilla Shake)
+ 4 tablespoons Splenda (Granulated)
+ 1/2 cup blanched almond flour (I use Trader Joe's)
+ 2 large eggs
+ 1/2 cup milk (I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
+ 2 tablespoons light butter (Balade is my choice)
+ 3 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles
+ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
+ 1 pinch salt
+ 1 teaspoon baking powder
+ nonstick cooking spray

Tools + Utensils
+ bowl
+ spatula or wisk
+ measuring utensils
+ storage bag or if you're fancy, a piping bag for icing
+ donut baking pan (I have this one but TBH this two pack is a better deal)
+ oven (lol)

Instructions
Set oven to 325 degrees F.

Dump all dry ingredients (except sprinkles) into your bowl and stir until thoroughly incorporated.

Next, place butter into a microwave safe dish and zap it for a few seconds (or leave out until completely softened). Set aside.

Add wet ingredients to the mix, including eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla.

Stir until a thick, doughy batter forms. It should be a little on the dry side. You don't want super wet dough. I repeat - you do NOT want super wet dough. Trust me. They'll neeeeeeeeever finish baking if the dough is too wet.

After the mix has been thoroughly incorporated, add in sprinkles. Mix 1-2 more times, but don't over-mix the dough at this point.

Spray your donut pan with nonstick cooking (or baking) spray, wiping away any excess.

SO much easier than scooping dough in. I'm mad it took me this long to figure it out.
At this point, you've got two options to transfer your dough to the baking pan. Option 1: scoop it in. I did this a few times, and it's a pain in the ass. But by all means, feel free.

Option 2: scoop your dough into a plastic storage bag, and squeeze all the air out before zipping shut. Take scissors and cut diagonally across the bag about 1/4 of an inch up from the corner. This will turn your storage baggie into a piping bag that makes it reeeeeeeally easy to fill each donut tin in the pan.

For smaller donuts that don't lowkey overflow in the pan, fill no more than halfway in each hole. But me being me, I emptied all the dough to make 6 donuts total. If your dough somehow yields more than 6, don't forget to do the macro math and adjust accordingly.

After your donut pan is filled, pop those babies in the oven for 25 minutes, or however long it takes for them to pass the toothpick test.

These babies are best enjoyed warm - I highly recommend eating fresh from the oven. But if you're prepping for the week, store the remaining donuts in the fridge and zap in the microwave for a few seconds to reheat.

Enjoy!
