27g carbohydrate

2g fat


For the donuts

120ml 1% milk

110g unsweetened applesauce

50ml real maple syrup

1 egg

100g all purpose flour

50g PEScience Cake POP Select Protein Powder

5g baking powder

For icing and toppings per individual donut

15 ml 1% milk

12g PEScience Select Protein Powder (flavor of choice)

(Optional: 2g of Instant pudding mix. If using increase milk to 20ml)

3-5g of cereal, chocolate chips, sprinkles, marshmallows, etc..


By hand or in a mixer, mix together the milk, maple syrup, applesauce, and egg.

Add in the flour, protein powder, and baking powder and combine until just incorporated. Batter will be fairly thin.

Evenly divide batter using a silicone donut baking pan. Enough batter for 6 donuts. Place the donut pan on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until cooked through.

Allow to cool and then remove from donut pan. Store for up to 4-5 days in the refrigerator.

To make the frosting mix together the milk and protein powder (and if using the instant pudding mix). That’s it. Top the donuts with the icing and your favorite toppings. To help thicken the icing, if needed, you can refrigerate it for a few minutes. Works like a charm! Fully iced and topped donuts can also be stored in the refrigerator but enjoy within 2 days of topping. I personally prefer to ice and top them just before enjoying.
