What if I told you that you could end every meal with a healthy dessert? More specifically, a dessert donut!? The best part? It’s a Stuffed Low Carb Donut that only takes a couple minutes to make in the microwave!
Take out a bowl or mug and add into it 1/2 tablespoon of melted butter, 2 tablespoons of coconut flour, 2 tablespoons of almond flour, 1 large egg, 1/2 scoop of your choice flavor protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of milk or milk substitute, and 1 teaspoon of a sweetener.
Use a complimenting protein powder flavor. For example, if you’re topping it with a vanilla Greek yogurt? Use vanilla protein powder.
Mix all of those ingredients together until your clumps are gone.
Low Carb Donut Stuffing
Flatten out the top and spoon into the center 1 tablespoon of peanut or other nut butter. This is what you’ll use to “stuff” your low carb donut.
You can push that down with your spoon into the center or use a finger to make it even easier. Keeping your finger damp will make sure nothing sticks to it.
Last, microwave it for around a minute and top it with whatever you want.
Make sure to check your donut every :20-:30 seconds as you microwave it for the first time. Once it seems to have stopped rising, it should be done. Jot down the timing for next time.
What can you top this stuffed low carb donut with? Brown sugar substitute, protein frosting, Greek yogurt like I mentioned above, more nut butter, sugar free syrup, etc. Think outside the box and you’ll have endless low carb donut variations!
This is a quick one and you can definitely experiment with what you stuff it with. Let me know some of the variations you try in the comments below.
