Red Velvet Protein Donuts

Happy Valentines Day ❤ Protein donuts for the win! I used beet juice to get the red hue in these beauties 🍩

Recipe:

Red Velvet Protein Donuts

 

Ingredients:

•½ Cup whole wheat pastry flour (can sub oat, buckwheat, all purpose, etc.)

•½ Cup LeanFit All-In-One protein powder (can sub plant based protein powder)

•1 tsp baking powder

•½ tsp cinnamon

•¼ Cup unsweetened applesauce

•3 Tbsp beetroot juice

•¼ Cup VitaFiberIMO syrup (can sub honey, maple syrup, etc.)

•½ tsp pure vanilla extract

•1 Tbsp coconut water (can sub milk of choice or water)

•1 tsp apple cider vinegar

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease donut *pan. Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl.  In separate bowl whisk together all wet ingredients and add to dry, stir until just combined.  Place batter into large Ziploc bag and cut the corner to pipe into donut pan. *Bake as per notes below. Let cool completely before icing.  

 

*Notes: Yield 16-18 mini donuts or 6-8 large donuts – Baking time for mini donuts is about 8 minutes and for large donuts about 10-12 minutes.

 

Donut toppings: For half I used just plain melted coconut butter and for the other half I used equal parts of coconut oil & cacao powder and added VitaFiber syrup to my sweetness liking (can sub honey, maple syrup, etc.) and then sprinkled with freeze dried raspberries right away. Feel free to use whatever you desire.

Orange Red Velvet Protein Blondies

These are super delicious! I used blood orange and beet powder to get the pink hue of these protein treats. I adapted the recipe from my Lemon Protein Blondies I made a while back. They are super moist, low in fat and high in protein. Perfect for Valentines Day too ❤ Recipe below.
