These are not just any donut, friends! These are PALEO PROTEIN DONUTS. You can literally have your donut and eat it too. It's guilt-free and does a body good thanks to some unique and creative ingredients that bring together the ultimate donut experience. Donut recipe goodness below!

Donut ingredients:

  • 1 cup fine almond flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder (or paleo chocolate protein powder)
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk

Chocolate mushroom glaze ingredients:


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a large bowl, mix all donut ingredients until a smooth batter forms
  3. Gently spoon batter into donut pan
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked all the way through (toothpick trick to test readiness)
  5. Let cool for 10 minutes

While the donuts cool, prep the glaze...

  1. In a saucepan, melt the coconut butter on low heat.
  2. When the butter has melted, turn off the heat and add in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Whisk everything together until evenly combined.

Dip the top of each donut into the glaze and place on a rack to let the glaze harden.

Depending on the temperature of your kitchen this may take a while. If you're impatient go ahead and pop them in the refrigerator.

Computer programmer turned Nutritionist. I got sick of being sick. Years of spine problems, cystic acne, and severe anemia led me to this career. Where the computer science world turned me into an inflammatory ball of stress, nutrition therapy turned me into someone I never thought I could be. Someone happy, healthy, and free of the pain and fatigue that stifled my daily life. My education saved my life in many ways and as I further pursue my studies in the world of functional medicine, I’ll be helping others along the way. Since graduating as a Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, I have helped clients battle weight plateaus, hormone imbalances, digestive disorders, autoimmune disease, and even skin conditions like rosacea. Hence the name Fuel Your Fight.
