Doughnuts are my thing…
Along with dogs who look happy, family sized bars of chocolate, hitting a new personal best and finding a bargain. I’ll admit, I’m pretty easily pleased but there’s no reason why I should keep life’s little pleasures all to myself is there?
Anyway, it’s time to talk about baking doughnuts. One of the best thing’s about these doughnuts is the fact they are oven-baked using a silicone baking tray and can be ready in less than 20 minutes. Alongside being nutritionally balanced, so you could enjoy them as a snack or even as breakfast?
With all that said, shall I crack on and share how to make these delicious doughnuts? Don’t worry, I’ve included vegan options too!
Chocolate Protein Doughnuts
You will need…
40g Super Fine Oats
35g TRR Protein Powder
10g Cocoa Powder
125ml Milk (I used Almond Milk)
Half a teaspoon baking powder
1 Whole egg (or one flax egg*)
Pinch of salt
20g Icing Sugar (if required, I used natural Erythritol Icing and added cocoa powder and sprinkles)
Start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees, then in a large mixing bowl add all your oats, protein powder, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Then give this a quick mix until everything is nicely combined.
Now whisk the egg in a separate bowl, measure out the milk and add both of these to the dry mix and whisk until a smooth batter forms. Pour or spoon the mix into the doughnut baking tray and oven bake for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool and ice (if required – or a dusting of icing sugar is nice too!) or even just eat then plain!
Note: To make a flax egg, mix one tablespoon ground flaxseed meal with three tablespoons of water. Mix together, and let sit in your fridge for 15 minutes to set up and thicken.
