- 1 scoop (28g) Angel Food Cake protein powder
- 2 Maple Bacon Flex Flavors
- 2 TBSP (14g) coconut flour
- 2 TBSP (14g) almond flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1/2 C (122g) liquid egg whites
- 1/4 C (60g) unsweetened almond or coconut milk
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.
In a small bowl, mix together dry ingredients and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together liquids until well blended. Add dry ingredients to liquids and stir to combine. Quickly pour batter (approx 1/4 cup per donut) into prepared donut pan and bake until cooked through, approximately 18-20 minutes. Tops will be just starting to brown and 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 allow to cool. Serve warm or cool completely. Store uneaten donuts in the fridge for several days or freeze for longer storage.
Optional toppings: Protein donuts are incredibly versatile. They make fantastic breakfast sandwiches! Once cooled, slice and toast lightly in the toaster, then top with egg and bacon for a delicious high-protein breakfast. If making traditional donuts instead, mix Devotion Angel Food Cake protein with a bit of water or other liquid to make a glaze, then pour or drizzle over donuts. Top with chopped up bacon, if desired.

*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.
