Healthy, high protein baked blueberry donuts that are the perfect way to start off your morning. Eat this for breakfast, have them as a snack, or even have them as a dessert with some banana nicecream on the side.
I am finally putting to use the donut pan that I bought a few weeks ago, and this time I’m making a healthy donut recipe. The first time I tried making donuts, they turned out to be a complete flop. Nowww I’m trying again and they turned out the be a success. Plus they are healthy, packed with protein, and loaded with fiber. What’s not great about that?
Instead of using flour, I just blended up some oats and used that as the base. Oats are great because they are low calorie, high protein, and high fiber. They will keep you full longer and provide a great base for many baking recipes. This recipe I actually use a lot for baked oats and pancakes as well, just with a few tweaks and changes here and there.
The binding agent in this recipe is the bananas, which are super important so please don’t substitute them for anything! The riper they are the better because they will work better to bind the recipe but will also sweeten it up. I also added in a little maple syrup to sweeten it, but if you don’t want to, then you don’t have to.
