Treat cheat: Curb the holiday bloat with almond and coconut flours and protein powder in these delightful treats!
These doughnuts, unlike those you might find in your local cafe, are made with plenty of chocolate protein powder. This gives them bonus muscle-building power without skimping on the rich chocolatey flavour of this familiar classic confectionery. Decorated with crushed candy cane pieces, they are an attractive addition to any festive feast.

» 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
» 1/3 cup coconut palm Sugar
» 2/3 cup almond milk
» 1/2 cup almond flour
» 3 tsp peppermint extract
» 1/4 cup coconut flour
» 4 After Eight candies
» 2 squares of dark baker’s chocolate
Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Take four After Eight candies and cut into small squares, set aside. Mix all dry ingredients together then add almond milk and mix until fully incorporated. Fold in After Eight squares.
Pour the mixture into pre-sprayed doughnut trays. The mixture should be a thick consistency, so don’t worry if it doesn’t pour out like a batter. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until doughnuts are cooked through.
In saucepan or microwave, melt two squares of dark baker’s chocolate. Dip each doughnut in the melted chocolate to coat. Sprinkle over with crushed candy cane for decoration for an added festive effect.
