I don't know about you but one of my favorite things to do to when we are heading out on a long trip is to grab a hot coffee from Tim Horton's and sometimes (okay, most times...) I love grabbing a few doughnut holes (Timbits) from there as well.
And I've always wanted some sort of healthy alternative to the doughnuts from Tim Horton's, and finally we found a recipe that we tweaked that can satisfy this craving.
Let me put it out there that we may soon rework this recipe but I know we've had some people asking for this so here's the "first draft". These turned out pretty well but were still a little on the dry side so the next time I make them I may try adding in some applesauce to make it have the moistness that you'd expect from a doughnut :)
So here's the recipe:
2 Scoops Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl Protein Powder (any will do though, just don't use Shakeology---that's not meant for baking!)
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tablespoons Bob Mills Coconut Flour (again, any brand but Bob Mill's works well and is easy to find)
1/4 cup lite Coconut Milk mixed with 1/4 cup water to dilute it (you can also use 1/2 cup almond milk or skim milk)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Set the oven to 350 degrees, mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, pour into your doughnut pan, and cook for approximately 10 minutes.
I also mixed a little bit of the protein powder (maybe 1/4 scoop) with a little bit of water to make a type of icing that I poured over the hot doughnuts and it worked really well.
So try this and let me know how you like it!
Enjoy! Speaking of which, I may go have one right now...
