Directions for Protein Donuts
- Preheat your oven at the 175 degree Celsius (350F).
- First of all, you will need to make the base of the donuts. To do so, put the 75g (0.32 cups) of oatmeal in a bowl.
- Next, pour the 25g (0.11 cups) of whey and the baking powder over.
- Finally, place the 100g (0.43 cups) of applesauce and a whole egg in the mixture. Use a spatula or a spoon to mix the components together until you get a yellowish composition.
- Frosting: Either purchase or mill the Oreos yourself. Add these plus 150g (0.64 cups) of yogurt and mix until thick. Before placing frosting on pronuts, make sure to allow to the donuts to cool first or the icing will warm and run off the sides.
