Fat Thursday is long past and gone, though, it doesn't mean we can't enjoy a donut every now and then! I made these super delicious chocolate baked donuts some time ago and I absolutely fell in love with the recipe. It is not only extremely quick to make, but it also tastes absolutely unreal and it's baked! So for my fellow fitness enthusiasts, this one is for you! Feel free to join the baked donuts bandwagon and you won't regret it!

For this recipe, you won't need any fancy ingredients to make it tasty and healthy- ish and time isn't an issue here either - I'm sure you can find 15 minutes to make a couple of these beauties (or 20 mins!! if you'd like to batch make it!).

The recipe doesn't involve any chocolate making and store-bought chocolates as we aim to keep it as healthy (ish!!) as we can! Besides the power of cocoa powder is so underestimated - do not hesitate to grab some on your next visit to your local store!

Let's bake some donuts now!

  • 95g plain flour
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 30g erythritol
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 heaped tbsp greek yogurt
  • 4 tsp coffee
  • 2 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 100g cream cheese
  • 1 heaped tbsp erythritol
Preheat oven to 180C. Mix dry and wet ingredients separately first.
Add wet to dry and mix gently with a wooden spoon (at this stage you may struggle to combine it nicely with a spoon, so feel free to finish it off by using your hands and gently kneed the mixture)
Now, transfer onto a mini donut tray and bake for 8 minutes.
Mix both cream cheese and erythritol together vigorously and it's done!
  • For a vegan version of donuts, you can substitute an egg with 6 tbsp of aquafaba!
  • If you don't have erythritol on hand, you can use regular sugar!

    Is this brewed coffee or instant coffee granules? I can't wait to try these.

    Answers, please... 1) What is protein powder & 2) what if I don't have any?. 3) What if you don't have a donut tray? 4) Can these be cut with biscuit cutter & then round hole cut in center in order to bake?

    I gave a 5 star rating because I know coffee helps to enhance chocolate flavor and these have got to taste great. :) Also, when using dairy fats in place of oil in recipes, the product comes out more moist tasting and doesn't dry out as fast.

    Thank you, Everyone, for your answers.

      Thank you for your response. However, I am puzzled by what you said. If the batter is watery and runny, how can it go quite smoothly to form donuts in hand? If that liquidity, couldn't I just pour it into the small bundt pans? If I can form them in hand, couldn't they just be easily cut with round cutter & a smaller one to make hole in middle? Again, thank you for your replies. :)
