Coffee Cake Pronuts

Pronut… Protein Donut 🙂

Not only are these donuts filled with protein but they are also:

  1. Free of refined sugar
  2. Oil-free
  3. High in fiber
  4. Clean
  5. Filling
  6. A crowd pleaser
  7. Delicious!

If you do not have a donut tin feel free to make these into muffins, you would just have to adjust the cook time for a bit longer.

These turned out so yummy & delicious. I will absolutely be making them again 🙂

Coffee Cake Pronuts

  • Servings: 5
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Print




  • 1/2 c almond flour
  • 2 T pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Donut base:
  • 1 c oat flour (blend rolled or quick oats in a blender until forms a fine powder)
  • 1/4 c pea protein
  • 2 scoops plant-based peanut butter protein powder (I like orgain)
  • 1/2 c unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 c plant-based milk of choice (I use Good Karma‘s Flax + protein milk)
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 c date sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of pink himalayan salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. Spray 5 donut tins with non-stick cooking spray & set aside.
  3. Add all Streusel ingredients to a small bowl, whisk, & set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl add all of your Donut Base Ingredients.
  5. Mix your ingredients until well combined.
  6. Distribute batter among your 5 donut tins (I used my fingers) & smooth with a spoon.
  7. Sprinkle each battered filled donut tin with your streusel, until none remains & gently press the stresul down into the batter with a spoon.
  8. Bake at 350F for 13-15 minutes.
  9. I find it best to run a spoon along the insides of the donut tins, once removing from the oven, separating the donut from the tin so they do not stick, but then I allow them to cool before completing removing the donuts from the tin. Enjoy!



And here is what my dog was doing while I baked, lol. Who would you share these pronuts with?!
