Tips:

  • Top them with some Greek yogurt or protein frosting!
  • Keep them in the fridge and they’ll last around 7-10 days!
  • Using almond flour will drastically lower the carbs but increase the fat!

    Hi Derek,
    Would these work in a doughnut maker or only in the oven?

    Thanks!

      Hi Jess! Having never used a doughnut maker I can’t confirm or deny that it works in one!

    Hey Derek. First of all, your recipes are awesome! It allows a complete novice like me to make amazingly healthy cheesecake! Quick question, instead of coconut flour or almond flour and dark chocolate, would I be able to get away with using a protein pancake mix? Thank you!

    • Derek Howes on August 1, 2017 at 12:00 am

      Hey Mj! Thank you. Hmm, I think this really depends on the mix and what it has in it. I think it’s worth a shot…

    Hey Derek i just got an air fryer and been thinking about using one of your recipes to make some protein doughnuts with it. Any suggestions that you might have!! I also think it’d be cool if you start featuring some air fryer recipes. Thank you

    if we’re using white whole wheat flour or oat flour, would we still use 6 tbsp? is there a different ratio of coconut flour vs. oat flour?
