Protein Pumpkin Donuts

½ cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 scoop I-PLX vanilla protein powder

¼ Truvia baking blend (stevia + sugar mixture) *

1 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. cinnamon

Pinch of salt

¼ cup + 1tbsp. milk (I used unsweetened almond)

½ cup canned pumpkin puree

1 whole egg

1 tbsp. coconut oil, melted

½ tsp. vanilla extract

Chocolate Glaze

½ cup dark chocolate chips (or milk chocolate chips for sweeter)

Notes

*If you don’t have or can’t find the Truvia baking blend at the store, you can substitute for 1/3 cup granulated sugar (more or less depending on preferred sweetness.)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Add flour, protein powder, Truvia/sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon and salt to a large bowl. Mix. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, egg, melted coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  3. Gently stir together wet and dry ingredients until a smooth, thick batter forms. Spoon batter into a plastic piping bag (or gallon Ziplock bag).
  4. Spray a 6-spot donut pan with non-stick spray. Cut tip off of piping bag and pipe batter into the donut pan.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
  6. Microwave chocolate chips and coconut oil for about 45-60 seconds. Mix. Microwave again if needed to melt completely and make a smooth glaze.
  7. Let donuts completely cool. Once cooled, place in the freezer for about 5 minutes to make them slightly cold before glazing. This will allow the glaze to stick and harden quicker.
  8. Dip each donut in the glaze. Let harden and enjoy!
