I am obsessed with donuts. Total splurge….but I don't always want to splurge?? Who am I kidding. I do BUT I'd feel better eating donuts that are healthy :) Have you ever seen the blueberry cake donuts before? Or tried them? Mmmm they're so good! I decided to recreate those and make these mini blueberry cake protein donuts. I have to say. They are pretty damn close to the real thing! And they're mini. Mini things are cute. Enjoy!
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
3 Tbsp. coconut flour
¼ cup almond meal flour
2 Tbsp. granulated stevia
2 Tbsp. low fat cottage cheese
1½ Tbsp. coconut oil
1 large egg
¼ cup blueberries
½ tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. baking powder
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients together in a blender and mix until smooth (I used a magic bullet).
2.) Evenly divide batter into 12 mini donut molds. Bake muffins in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Let cool slightly. If desired, dip each donut in melted white chocolate chips. Enjoy!
Makes 12 servings
1 serving = 1 mini donut
