Salted Caramel Protein Donuts
Once a week when we do our market shopping we buy a box of hot jam donuts and it literally the highlight of my week! But we're no longer allowed to go to the market (stage 4, 5km restrictions) so I tried to make my own!
They're not quite the same as I didn't have any jam... but they're still just as delicious! Served best straight out of the oven when the chocolate chips are still melty
Serves 12, GF, DF,
2/3 cup milk (dairy or plant based)
2 tbsp liquid sweetener (honey, rice malt syrup, maple syrup etc)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup oat flour (blended rolled oats) - use quinoa for GF
1 cup almond flour
1 cup plant-based salted caramel protein powder
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180 c. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract.
Add the oat flour, almond flour, protein powder, baking powder and chocolate chips to the bowl and mix until combined.
Lightly grease/spray a donut tin with olive oil and pour the mixture into 12 donut holes. Top the donuts with the chocolate chips and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.
