    I also bought the same exact molds pictured above and they were amazing. I didn’t use any non stick spray and the donuts just popped right out.

    Awesome! I'm glad my recipe contributed! I've been eating protein donuts for breakfast pretty much every weekend morning, and the silicone tray still works PERFECT, you might want to still use some spray though, just in case. I'm in love with making glaze/frosting with casein and almond milk now, so I bought 5lbs today. Apparently if you whip casein protein with almond milk it gets the consistency of pudding that is pretty much perfect for dipping a donut in. Tomorrow's breakfast... gonna be so good. lol.

    I wish the donuts in all these posts tasted as good as they look. I've been hurt too many times ...

    I feel that way about 90% of recipes on proteinpow, but these are pretty damn good for what they are. The trick is that they're really just donut shaped pancakes with an egg and some shortener to cake them up and sweeten them a bit more. Since the base is protein pancake mix the right ratios of baking powder, whey, and flour are taken care of.

    Casein is a slow digesting protein derived from milk, Optimum Nutrition manufactures a lovely casein protein powder in a variety of flavors ; )

    I actually bought the ingredients I didn't have just to try these out. The results are rather pleasing. Sure, they're not store bought super sweet, but they are tasty, and they are filling. I think I'll be making these as part of my rotation of stuff to help me reduce total intake.

    Thank you!

    Glad you like them! I've been eating a batch of donuts pretty much every weekend lately.

    I've been playing with ingredients/amounts. My current recipe is

    100g flapjacked pancake mix (or mix of choosing)
    0-20g flavoring (cocoa, splash of vanilla extract, whatever you want)
    50g apple sauce
    10g honey
    1 large egg
    Then splash in almond milk until you get the right consistency (somewhere between 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup I think)

    Lately I ice them all with casein protein pudding. Mmmmm. half scoop of casein whey (any flavor, but must be casein) and whisk in almond milk until it is a pudding texture. Delicious.

    I think I'm going to try honey next. Sounds yummy!

    I still make a batch of these every week for my husband. He has a weakness for donuts and he loves these! Plus he can eat 3 of them for 350 calories. His favorite so far is pumpkin with maple icing <3

    I will never stop making them haha. They're not as sweet as a "real" donut, but if you want to add more sweetener you can. It's basically a fun way to cake up pancake mix and cook it in a donut mold.

    Have the doughnut pans but not the protein pancake mix. I'll have to order some to try it out. :)

    I just made these with Kodiak Cakes Pumpkin Mix. I made an icing with Walden Farms maple syrup and swerve. They are so good

    I just saw flapjacked mix for the first time, and it was in the bargain bin. Cinnamon apple. I happened to buy donut trays last weekend for a recipe that sucked. Thank heaven I found this! Making these in about an hour!
