Paleo Protein Chocolate Donuts

If your a donut lover I bet you have never had a healthy donut like this one! Rich, chooclately and the perfect bite when you want that donut shop donut.

One of my fondest memories as a kid growing was going to the donut shop with my mom after we would drop my brother at school. Now, this wasn’t one of those fancy donut shops with fancy donuts. I’m talking one of those hole-in-the-wall, casual donut shops that opens early in the morning and smells like cheap coffee and donuts 🙂

I would order a chocolate sprinkled and hot chocolate which would burn my mouth every time. I still love this donuts and also love these protein donuts. I know everyone is focused on how important protein is and I agree which is why i created these. So easy and delicious and you can make them as a donut or donut hole.

All you need of the recipe is

  • eggs
  • milk – can use coconut , almond or even dairy milk
  • apple cider vinegar
  • vanilla extract
  • almond flour
  • coconut sugar
  • chocolate protein powder ( code danielle ) can also use cacao powder
  • chocolate chips for frosting

I recommend storing these donuts in an air tight container in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh for up to one week. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy them, simply allow to defrost at room temperature and then warm them up to your desired temperature.

Difficulty: Beginner
Servings: 8
Best Season: Suitable throughout the year


Simple ingredients, easy to make and so delicious! The perfect weekend baking project! 



  1. Heat oven to 350’f. Oil a muffin tin if you want to make donut holes or a donut pan. Mix together milk and apple cider vinegar let it sit for 5 minutes. Whisk together eggs, vanilla and milk mixture. Add sugar and mix. 

    In a seperate bowl mix together dry ingredients. The fold dry into wet. Then place filling into a ziplock bag ( makes it easier to add into donut pan or muffin tin) divide batter into donut pan or dollop batter into balls in muffin tin. Bake 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

    Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in 20-second intervals so you do not burn the chocolate. Whisk in the maple syrup, almond milk, and vanilla extract (note: can add 1 - 2 more teaspoons of almond milk until desired consistency).

    Dip each cooled donut into the frosting and Enjoy!
