Flashback to my high school days, wearing my yellow polyester uniform, standing behind the counter at Ken's Donuts, serving up the hottest, freshest, and quite possibly least healthy things you could ever eat. I don't miss those early morning shifts, but I still love a good donut. So I made my own...
I got the idea to try to make these little gems while walking through Marshall's (because I love a good deal), and I saw the donut pan. I went home to the "test kitchen", and after a couple of flat attempts, I found a combination that is tasty and good for you too.
Time To Make The Donuts...
One packet of Vanilla Met-Rx Protein Powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
Optional - Dark Chocolate Chips (8 per donut) - but seriously - we all know this is totally a must add
Preheat your oven to 375, and coat your pan with non stick canola oil spray
Put two egg whites and one whole egg in your Magic Bullet
Add in the Met-Rx Vanilla Protein Powder, along with the vanilla and baking powder
(I put a splash of almond milk in the empty Met-Rx envelope to get all the powder that sticks to the sides - You know - the old Kool-Aid trick)
I use the Magic Bullet, (which I got at my beloved Costco), because it mixes with no lumps and clean up is a breeze - it's a perfect time saver in an early morning rush. If you don't have a Magic Bullet, just be sure to get the mixture smooth and lump-free. You may need to add a little water to get the right cake batter consistency...
Bake for 20 minutes...

I love these because they are delicious, healthy, and very portable. When I'm on the run, I take them with me to eat throughout the morning. It keeps my diet in check - and hey - Who doesn't love a donut?
