I can’t believe it’s Monday night already, so depressing… The whole getting dark at 5:00 thing is getting old already. But, I won’t complain… this is my favorite season and Christmas will be here before we know it!
Speaking of Christmas, it reminds me of gifts and presents. This weekend, my boyfriend gave me a perfect gift – a mini doughnut maker! So of course, the first thing we made together were Perfect Fit Donuts!
These were so yummy and I can’t believe how healthy they were. Normally, I down a whole box of doughnuts without even blinking an eye. I mean, what is better than white powdered doughnuts and a big cup of cold milk? Dough and anything related to bread is my downfall. I’m so, so happy that I found a healthy alternative to when I’m having my usual bad cravings.
- 1 cup of Perfect Fit Protein
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp. coconut oil (or just extra virgin olive oil)
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (use chocolate milk to make chocolate donuts)
- 1/3 cup egg whites
- 1 tsp stevia
- dash of cinnamon (I used more than a dash since I loveee cinnamon)
- Optional: add 2 tbsp. cocoa powder if you’re making chocolate
In a large mixing bowl, take your 1 cup of Perfect Fit Protein and pour in the powder.
Add in the rest of your dry ingredients and egg whites. Start stirring!
Next, start pouring in your almond milk. I like the Silk brand – less calories and much healthier than soy or regular milk.
Whisk ingredients together until the batter is completely smooth.
With my Bella doughnut kit, this pink ketchup bottle looking thing was included. If you have one of these at home, I suggest using it. It makes pouring in the batter a lot easier (and less sloppy than pouring it in by hand…)
Simply close the lid and let them bake for however long your machine requires. It takes about 1 minute for the one I have. Once they’re done, they look like this. Pretty perfect, right? And simple!
For the toppings, you can either:
Drizzle organic honey on top
- Melt down organic chocolate with cocoa powder to make a chocolate drizzle (this goes great if you make chocolate doughnuts)
- If you have Perfect Fit, sprinkle some protein powder on top of the doughnuts to make a powdered topping. So yummy!
If you try this yummy and healthy recipe, let me know what toppings you used! Tried a different type than the ones I mentioned? Comment below and let me know!
These make the perfect little snacks too. I packed some in my lunch box for work and ate some as a mid-morning snack. These are great for snacks in between breakfast & lunch OR lunch & dinner. They’re also full of protein – so these would even be great as a post workout snack. Lots of options with these bad boys.
