I feel like I haven't posted a recipe in, well, ages really.  It's probably been about six months, and that is just way too long.  Thank goodness I'm breaking that streak today!
Yep, it's being broken with donuts.  Why?  More accurately, why not?!  I mean, chocolate donuts spread with luscious, creamy frosting and packed with about 20 grams of protein… do you really need any more convincing? Ya, I didn't think so.
CHOCOLATE PROTEIN CAKE DONUTS WITH CREAM CHEESE PROTEIN FROSTING
Donut recipe based on my chocolate peppermint donuts.
Serves 1

Ingredients:

For the donuts:
•  1 /4 cup spelt flour
•   1/4 teaspoon baking powder
•   1/8 teaspoon baking soda
•   1.5 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
•   smidgen nutmeg
•   1/4 cup Greek yogurt
•   1 tbsp applesauce
•   3 tablespoon liquid egg whites or 1 egg white
•   1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
•   sweetener to taste (I used liquid stevia)

For the frosting:
•   2 tbsp whipped cream cheese
•   1/4 scoop vanilla protein powder
•   1 tbsp almond milk

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (or 375 on convection) and grease two donuts of a donut pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, and nutmeg.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the yogurt, applesauce, egg white, vanilla extract, and stevia/sweetener.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and fold together until well combined, but don't over-mix.  
  5. Spoon the batter into the greased donut pan and bake in the preheated oven for about ten minutes.  Test with a toothpick!
  6. While the donuts are cooling, mix together the frosting ingredients in a small bowl until combined and smooth.  Remove the donuts from the pan, frost, and devour!
Now my absolute favorite part of this recipe is the awesome frosting.  Seriously, I could have a bowl of just the frosting for breakfast and be one happy camper.  I'm thinking the frosting would also be great on pancakes or waffles.  Don't worry, I'll be testing it out ASAP.

So go make some donuts, drown them in frosting, and sit in the kitchen (or in bed, I won't judge) with a smile on your face as you have your donuts and eat them too.  

Do you like donuts?  Are you a fan of frosting?


I hope everyone's week is off to a great start!

Yum - Alex, these donuts sound amazing but that frosting! Wow girl, I am so loving your frosting! I have chocolate protein powder at home and cannot wait to try it with that - yup, I think I could eat a bowlful too!

The considerable thing about these activities is that you don't need to do them consistently. Two times each week is adequate for a great many people to get great incline muscle and regardless they see stunning results similarly as their size runs with the fitness performed.

THESE LOOK AMAZING. Oh my gosh that frosting looks flawless. And the fact that it's 'protein' frosting totally makes my day. I LOVE doughnuts, and the more frosting the better! These seriously look so amazing Alex!

I don't generally like donuts, but these look amazing! The one place I do generally love donuts are the special high altitude donuts that they make on Pike's Peak. I like frosting as long as it is expertly created and not the too-sugary, fake frosting. I definitely want to try your recipe!

If you use a french tip, here's another easy thing you can do. Instead of swirling around, just hold the tip steady and still in the center of the cupcake. Apply pressure and watch the frosting fill the top of the cupcake. This works brilliantly on mini-cupcakes.

When it comes to planning the big day, a bride has many details that need to be worked out ahead of time. Some details are big, like where to have the ceremony and other are a bit smaller, like whether or not to have people blow bubble or throw birdseed at the bride and groom as they leave. One detail that fall somewhere in the middle, for example, is where to find perfect square wedding cakes with flowers.
