  • Preheat oven to 325
  • In a bowl, whisk together nut butter, eggs, honey, coconut oil, and almond milk. Stir in remaining ingredients
  • The batter should be somewhat thick, but if it is clumpy or difficult to stir, add a little more milk or water.
  • Spray your donut pan with coconut oil or cooking spray.
  • Fill your greased donut pan 3/4 the way full. Tip: You can spoon batter into a ziploc bag, cut the corner off, and 'pipe' donuts into your pan.
  • Bake at 325 for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown on top.
  • Allow donuts to cool + enjoy. You can 'frost' with nut butter or greek yogurt/honey mixture if you'd like (1/2 cup greek yogurt + 1 teaspoon honey)



  • These donuts come out the best when you use whey protein powder. I used this Vanilla Whey Protein Powder. They come out perfectly moist, and I don't think they have that protein-y taste.
  • To make vegan: I used a plant based protein powder. This NOW Foods Vanilla Plant Protein worked great, but the donuts came out a little bumpy on top, rather than being smooth. See photo below. I think these also tasted great, but they do have a little bit of a protein like taste. Sub 1 egg for a flax egg and swap honey with maple syrup
This recipe originally had almond meal in it but was updated to have fewer ingredients and better macros. The original recipe is included in the post below this recipe card
