Check out these easy-to-make, protein-packed, low-carb donuts!

Using our Lo-Dough bases (blitzed to a crumb in a food processor), you can make incredible light and fluffy, low-calorie, low-carb and high protein donuts without compromising on flavour. 

Instead of deep-frying, you'll need a doughnut mould - easily available online for a couple of pounds. This means instead of submerging in hot oil, you'll be baking them - which means no frying oil (full of calories and often, trans fats).

Our naked protein donuts come in at 56 calories, 2g of carbs & 8g of protein. How you top them is up to you...

  • A little dusting of powdered erythritol sweetener (add 0 calories/carbs)
  • White chocolate and dark chocolate drizzle (add 68 calories/2g carbs)
  • PBfit peanut butter and grated dark chocolate (add 87 calories/5g carbs & 8g protein)

Recipe makes 6 mini ring donuts.

  • 1 Lo-Dough Base, blitzed to a crumb in a food processor
  • 1 large egg
