Recipe: Protein Doughnuts

We caught up with Anna Sward from Protein Pow, who used our brand new Lean-8 to make these delicious Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Protein Doughnuts!

Ingredients for the Doughnuts

  • ¼ cup of USN Lean-8 (Chocolate Peanut Butter)
  • 1 large egg


  • ¼ cup of ground almonds
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup of rolled oats

Ingredients for the Topping

  • 1 square (10g) dark chocolate
  • ½ tsp coconut oil
  • ½ tbsp cocoa powder

How to Prepare…

  1. Using a handheld blender or food processor, blend together all the doughnut ingredients until you get a smooth batter.
  2. Transfer the batter into four holes of a silicone doughnut pan.
  3. Bake for 6-8 minutes at 160 C or until, when poked with a knife, your knife comes out clean.
  4. Make your chocolate topping by melting the dark chocolate with the coconut oil and cocoa powder. Then, pour this on top of the doughnuts.
