I love to make these mini coconut sugar donuts! I find the protein powder is a great addition to making a sweet treat into a nutritious delight! I feel it gives me the energy I need for the morning and also works as a great pick-me-up snack. They are easy to make and require few ingredients.
Ingredients for Donuts
3/4 cup oat flour
3/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 flax egg
1 ripe banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup Califia Almond milk for Donuts
1 Tbsp Justin’s Cinnamon Almond Butter
Pinch of Sea Salt
Coconut oil spray for Donut Pan
Ingredients for Topping
1 Tbsp Vegan Butter
1/4 cup of Califia Almond milk
1/3 cup of Coconut Sugar
Preheat oven to 350 and measure ingredients.
Combine wet ingredients in Vitamix or high-speed blender. Alternatively, you can also use a wooden spoon and mix well.
Lightly spray donut pan with coconut oil and add dough, bake 20-22 minutes in the oven. I used a mini treats iron that bakes them in a few minutes.
To make the topping:
Melt vegan butter and add almond milk - whisking until combined.
Lightly dip donuts once cooled from baking into bowl of butter and almond milk and then roll in coconut sugar until covered!
