INGREDIENTS (makes 8 doughnuts)
50g of NRGFuel vanilla protein powder
0.5tsp baking powder
0.5tsp baking soda
60g almond flour (I used Sukrin)
20g coconut flour ( I used Coconut merchant)
90g rice flour
10g potato starch
Zest of 1 lemon
2eggs + 1egg white
1tsp vanilla extract
150g fat free greek yoghurt
Juice from half a lemon
100g dark 70% chocolate (melted) for coating + some ground nuts and cacao nibs for decoration
This is optional, if you counting your macros you can avoid glazing and eat them as they are, promise, they will taste awesome.
Preheat oven to 190’C
In one medium sized bowl mix all dry ingredients, in another medium bowl mix with a fork all wet ingredients.
Now pour wet ingredients in to dry and mix all very well with a hand whisk or spatula. Just do not over mix, just until all evenly combined.
Divide the batter between 8 moulds and pop in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
If using, melt the chocolate, coat the doughnuts as desired top them up with nuts, cacao nibs or just leave plain and lemony.
Or, mix Meridian smooth peanut butter with some maple syrup and table spoon of melted coconut oil and smother on the top… mmm….
