- 3 Coconut Biscotti Flex Flavors
- 2 TBSP coconut flour
- 2 TBSP almond flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1/2 C liquid egg whites (approx 4 raw whites)
- 1/4 C unsweetened almond milk (or other liquid)

- ½ scoop Angel Food Cake Protein Powder
- 1 Coconut Biscotti Flex Flavor
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1-3 tsp water

Preheat oven to 350. Apply non-stick spray/oil to 4 wells of donut baking pan with full-size (3.5” across) wells. If using a silicone baking pan, place on a firm baking sheet.
Zest lemon and set zest aside. Juice lemon and set aside for glaze.
In a small bowl, mix together protein powder, flex flavors, flours, baking powder, and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, egg whites and almond milk until well blended. Add dry ingredients mixture to blended liquids and stir to combine. Mix in lemon zest, reserving a few pinches for garnish.
Quickly pour batter (approx 1/4 cup per donut) into prepared donut pan and bake until cooked through, approximately 18 minutes. Tops will spring back when lightly touched.
Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes on cooling rack. If using a silicone pan, run a knife or spatula gently around the edges to ensure that donuts release easily. Remove from pan and serve warm or cool completely.
For glaze, mix ½ scoop Devotion Angel Food Cake Protein Powder with 1 Coconut Biscotti Flex Flavor and the juice of 1 lemon. Add water, a teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Spread or drizzle onto donuts and garnish with reserved lemon zest.

Notes: For pans with smaller donut wells, baking time will be reduced. If using a metal non-stick pan, reduce baking temperature to 325 and increase baking time accordingly.
