  • Oven/donut machine
  • Donut tray


Dry ingredients

  • 125 g oat flour
  • 60 g protein powder (best to use chocolate flavour, but I used vegan soy protein)
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 8 g vanilla sugar

Wet ingredients

  • 235 ml warm milk
  • 3 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp packed pitted dates (45 g)
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 egg


  • 100 g chocolate chips (melted)


  • You can use a donuts maker as I did or use a doughnut pan or muffin pan. In that case, preheat your oven to 175°C. 
  • Whisk the dry batter ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Separately, blend the wet batter ingredients until smooth.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry and fold gently to combine. When the batter is just combined without any wet streaks or dry clumps, stop. Over-mixing can result in tough, chewy doughnuts; not what we're going for here!
  • Transfer the thick batter to a piping bag. Lightly grease your doughnut pan/machine. Pipe the batter in evenly and bake in your preheated oven for 25 - 30 minutes or for 5-10 minutes in the machine. Let cool before glazing.
  • Melt the chocolate chips and dip the donuts in it. Sprinkle it with some cute sprinkles.
  • To freeze, place the doughnuts on a parchment-lined freezer-safe dish/baking sheet. Freeze until solid to the touch.
