Recipe: Apple, Flax, and Cinnamon Protein Powder Doughnuts

Sweet, fluffy, light and full of protein!

Our protein powder doughnuts are a great way to introduce more protein into your diet and have a lovely light and fluffy texture.

Having never made doughnuts before, we think these came out really well and most importantly were super tasty.We did find that the vanilla protein powder in this recipe does overpower the other flavours, so if you prefer, use an unflavoured protein powder.

Make sure you have tried sweetened protein powder before, as the taste can be quite strange at first.

Ingredients (for 6 small doughnuts)

  • 1 apple
  • 1/8 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 cup flaxseed
  • 1tablespoon dried coconut flakes
  • maple syrup for drizzling


Preheat oven to 160c/Gas mark 3.

Mix all ingredients together in a blender, or using a hand held mixer.

Pour the mixture into 6-holed mini doughnut mould.

Bake around 15-20 minutes or until they are cooked through.

The healthy bit

Apples are full of antioxidants and contain a good amount of vitamin C.

One scoop of whey protein powder provides 22 grammes of protein, a vital building block for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
