These sticky, sweet, crispy donuts are made with Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes mix and filled with organic mixed berry preserves before being lightly fried in coconut oil and then rolled in a sweet maple syrup glaze and sprinkled with cinnamon and powdered sugar. With over 15 grams of protein, these donuts are worth every bite.
Here’s how you can make your own:
1 cup Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Mix
6 tsp. organic mixed berry preserves
1 whole egg
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. powdered sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
* Makes 6 Pronuts
1) In a large bowl combine the Power Cakes mix with 1 whole egg and 1/4 cup of water and mix until the batter has a cookie dough-like consistency.
2) Mold the mix into patties and make an indent in them with your thumb.
3) Add 1 tsp. of organic berry preserves, jelly, jam or whatever filling you’d like into the indent.
4) Fold the dough over the jelly filling making sure the indents are completely sealed.
1) Heat a large skillet on a medium flame and melt 2 tbsp. of virgin coconut oil.
2) Place each donut on the skillet and fry until both sides and edges of the donut are golden-light brown.
3) Place the donuts on a plate and rub them with maple syrup (dip a spoon in maple syrup and rub it evenly across the donut. Repeat until each donut is fully and evenly glazed).
4) Sprinkle 1 tsp. of powdered sugar and 1 tsp. of cinnamon evenly over each donut.

Check out this delicious Protein Cookie cheat meal recipe. I used a MyProtein Double Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie, 1 tbsp of natural peanut butter and a drizzle of honey.
All I did was:
1) Wrap the cookie in plastic wrap.
2) Pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds on high.
3) Smear 1 tbsp. of peanut butter across it.
4) Drizzle roughly 1 tsp. of honey on it.

Microwaving the cookie for 15 seconds solved the problem I mentioned in my recent post regarding protein snacks. They always tend to be tough and chewy. This really softened the cookie up, melted the chocolate chips, and it’s honestly a really enjoyable dessert. A regular big cookie dessert like this might have closer to 25-30 grams of fat, 50+ grams of carbs, and 5 grams of protein. You really get a lot of bang for your buck with this.
