How to make this recipe Dairy Free:

This recipe can easily be tailored to dairy free. First, make sure you are using a plant based protein powder. It should clear state that it is gluten free. Remember, if whey is included in the ingredients, that means it is dairy. Be sure to check out my protein list above and check out my favorite dairy free choices.

  • Total Time: 28 minutes
  • Yield: 6 donuts 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Donuts

  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1/3 cup Monk Fruit Granulates
  • 1/3 cup Vanilla Protein Powder (plant based for dairy free)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 large strawberries, diced 
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • small pinch of salt

Frosting

  • 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp plain dairy free yogurt 
  • 1 tbsp Monk Fruit Syrup or Honey 
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 large strawberries, diced for garnish

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven 350F
  2. Add all the donut ingredients except for the diced strawberries into a medium bowl.
  3. Use an electric mixer on medium/high speed to completely combine the batter. Make sure to scrap down the sides of the bowl a few times while mixing.
  4. Fold in the diced strawberries in with a spatula. 
  5. Grease a 6 hole donut pan and spray with cooking spray.
  6. Pour or pipe the batter evenly into the six molds.
  7. Bake 15-17 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Make sure not to overbake.
  8. Meanwhile, add the glaze ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together.
  9. Remove the donuts and allow to cool in the pan 3-4 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. 
  10. Once cool, use a spoon to glaze each donut.
  11. Top each glazed donut with freshly diced strawberries and enjoy!

Notes

  • For a simple glaze that does not include protein powder, mix 1/2 cup of Swerve confectioners sugar and 1/4 cup almond milk. Mix together until combined. Dip each donut into the glaze and allow to harden on the cooling rack.
  • If the batter seems a little too thick, simply add a little more almond milk to thin it out some.
  • For the glaze above, you can adjust the thickness by adding more or less almond milk. If it is too thick, add more milk. If it is too thin, add a bit more protein powder. 
  • Also, if you are not dairy free, feel free to sub 1 1/2 tbsp Greek Yogurt in the glaze ingredients. 
  • Store covered in the fridge for up to a week and freeze up to 2 months.

    I can’t wait to try this! But I do have a question first…I don’t have any monk fruit granulates. What other paleo options would be a good substitute for this?

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
