Protein Donuts

Let's face it, we all like donuts, but these come at a price.
A plain donut has around 225 calories, 13 grams of fat, 10 grams of sugar and only 2 grams of protein.

Making a healthier, high protein version is quite simple and requires few ingredients.

You can make any flavour you like depending on what protein you have, but in this case we are making chocolate donuts (of course)


Ingredients: (4 donuts)

40 grams of oat flour (or regular flour)
25 grams of whey protein (we used chocolate)
90 ml of liquid egg-whites
1 tsp of cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp of sweetener (we used xylitol)
2 tbsp water

Heat the oven to 180C (350F)
Mix all the dry ingredients first, so it's all blended together.
Then add in the wet ingredients and mix well again.

Take a donut pan and spray it with some non-sticking spray. Scoop the mixture in, then bake for 8-10 minutes.

If you want to make a glaze, simply mix about 1 tbsp of whey protein with 2 tbsp of water and dip the donuts in.

But wait, what about heating whey?? Check this article to answer your question.


Waffles of Glory

Knowing fully that there is already a protein waffle recipe up on the site, this creation still deserves a post on it's own.

So simple, yet so glorious. Chocolate lovers, this is a must-make for you!
If you don't have one of the ingredients, don't worry, we put an alternative option behind it. However, the nutrition facts are based on the original recipe.

Step 1 - The waffle maker
If you don't have one, this can be a challenge. But a waffle maker is quite cheap and we think it's a must-have in every kitchen.

Step 2 - Ingredients

20 grams of Cellucor Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Whey (or a vanilla whey)
15 grams of oat flour (or regular flour)
80 ml of egg whites (or 1 whole egg)

Step 3 - The Topping

20 grams of Nutella (there is NO substitute for that!)
20 grams of Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams

Blend the ingredients in step 2 together in a bowl and heat up the waffle maker.
Spray a little non-stick spray on the waffle irons and pour the mixture in.
Cook the waffles for about 3-4 minutes.

Next, when the waffles are still warm, spread Nutella on one and DCD on the other.
Eat. Be in heaven.

Note: Yes, you can scream and say, Nutella is sooo unhealthy! It's full of sugar! Yes, we know it has sugar. But there are tons of "health foods" out there, that contain sometimes even more sugar. They just look different, but Nutella tastes better.

Product Review: Oh Yeah! Low Carb Bar (pt. 2)

oh yeah low carb bar chocolate chip cookie dough reviewSince we really enjoyed the Oh yeah! Low Carb Bar with Peanut Butter Pie flavor, we thought, what the hell, let's get the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough as well (rhyming intended, sort of.)

So here a short(er) review on the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, for all of the extra information, check part 1.

Macros & Ingredients

The macros are pretty much identical, just 10 calories and 1 gram of protein less tan it's peanut butter brother.

The ingredients differ only in the sense that there is chocolate liquor, cocoa butter & cocoa powder in this bar and also sunflower seed butter (we think this is for the cookie dough part)

Taste

Cookie Dough is a tough taste to re-create, and doesn't work that well for protein powders. However in a bar this is much easier, and upon cutting the bar in half, they managed to hit the mark:

Cookie Dough? Check! Chocolate Chips? Check!

The texture and taste are spot on as well, this is a bar that doesn't disappoint in all areas.

On a personal note, the Peanut Butter Pie is the favourite out of the 2, but both bars are definitely excellent newcomers in the protein bar world.

Where to buy?
