Whole Wheat Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze

Finally posting my first healthy donut recipe! Whole wheat and slightly sweetened with coconut sugar. These tasty treats are topped off with a protein packed glaze made from PB2.

Just in case you were curious... Each of these donuts only has 115 calories! They also provide 17 grams of carbohydrate and 5 grams of protein which is a 3.5:1 ratio, perfect for post-workout!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup PB2 + water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray a 6-count doughnut pan lightly with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium-large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In another medium-large bowl, whisk together milk, egg, oil and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and gently mix until just combined.
  5. Evenly distribute in doughnut pan. Tap pan on counter to release air bubbles. Bake for 8 minutes, until doughnuts are cooked through.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together PB2 + water (add slowly until you get a nice, thin consistency without being too liquidy).
  7. Let doughnuts cool before glazing. Once cool, dunk doughnuts in glaze and place on cooling rack or wax paper to dry. 
  8. Serve and enjoy!
