    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!

    And????!?!?!

    Well, they didn't suck. I used the recipe on the bag. I forgot I didn't have applesauce and was going to chop up some apple, but forgot. I did add a tablespoon of vanilla extract and 25g of my favorite vanilla whey isolate. So, they're a bit dry, but I'm dunking them, which helps. Next time, will make sure I have applesauce on hand. The recipe on the bag said it made 9, but it made 12 in my pans.

    If you make your own protein mix, is there a way to add that recipe as an ingredient in a baking recipe? Or can you only enter it as an item in a meal?

    Add each ingredient manually to the recipe.

    My creation from last night. As shown the 3 were under 100cal. Yes. 100cal for all 3

    @crazyravr What did you use for your glaze? Those look amazing!

    I'm ... ugh, I think the math would suck. Like... I use a recipe to make the mix that makes way more mix than I need for a set of donuts. Soooo then I think I would have to ... weigh the finished mix, use the number of ounces as the number of ser... no, that doesn't work.

    Screw it, the macros on the DIY mix are close. I'm just using the brand version when I log it. :P

    Deep fried donuts they are definitely not, but if you think of them as donut shaped cakes, AMAZING :)

    Would you mind sharing your recipe please? They look amazing and 100 cal for all 3 is fantastic!

    Seeing this thread spring back to life I see some donuts in my future. Not to long ago I mixed in dried blueberries and made a glaze of coconut oil and stevia. So good.

    If you weigh out the coconut oil (measure before dip, then measure what's left after dipping), it adds a surprisingly low amount of calories.

    Came across this thread while searching for something last night. My silicone donut tray will be here Monday! :p

    I'm going to have to set up some sort of calendar to keep track of when I want to make cheesecake, angel food cake, and donuts LOL

    So many awesome recipes and ideas - thank you to all who keep coming up with these!

    Me likes! Here's 5 Insanely Delicious Protein Mug Cake Recipes to compliment that.

    I wish I wasn't lazy. I like the IDEA of these, but not the process. Half the things I either don't have or have to do myself, like grind almonds/oats...etc. I would much rather just buy a piece of cake from the bakery and eat half than deal with grinding and washing dishes. I kind of feel protein stuff is almost always inferior to the real stuff, so almost always it isn't worth putting in the effort.

    How many times I planned to make something then just ended up buying something + drinking a protein shake instead for similar macros. Wish there was a cure for laziness.

    ETA: I do make protein mug cakes, but as basic as it gets (protein powder+baking soda and a bit of liquid), but only because it's easier to wash mugs than it is to wash shakers.

    I finally made this recipe this afternoon! They came out beautiful and were delicious. I’d have a hard time believing something this good could be so low calorie if I hadn’t made them myself! Exactly as written (baked for 12 min instead of 10) it made 12 amazing little mini donuts. I added a really nice spice blend (cinnamon, nutmeg, anise) to the mix, then sprinkled a little more on top after they came out of the oven. I can’t get my picture to add, so I’ll make a separate post. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe!
