Donut Ingredients

  • 3 Large Extra Ripe Bananas (mashed)
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Protein Powder (I used plant-based orgain)
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup Ground Flaxseeds (or chia seeds)
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Cashew Milk (any milk will work)

Frosting Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Cream (found in a can)
  • 1/2 Cup Swerve Confectioner Powder (or use powdered sugar)
  • 1/2 Cup Protein Powder (I used orgain)
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350, and grease a donut pan with cooking spray. 

  2. Add all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. 

    **if you're making chocolate, add in the cocoa powder, extra milk, and chocolate protein powder

  3. Fill the donut pan to the top with batter, and bake 17-19 minutes. 

    **Use the toothpick method to determine if it's done. The edges will be slightly golden. 

  4. Let the donuts cool completely before adding frosting or removing from pan.

    Prepare the frosting!


  1. Add vanilla, protein powder, confectioner powder, and coconut cream to a bowl or electric mixer. Combine well. 

    **Add more protein or confectioner powder until smooth. 

  2. Spread about two tablespoons onto the donuts. You'll definitely have some leftover! 

    **Add cocoa powder to create the chocolate frosting. I added the cocoa powder to the leftover vanilla frosting.
