My loves! Okay.. THIS is the one recipe you need to try! LOL! Happy self love Sunday 💚💚
I love anything with chocolate and mini donuts 🍩!! Who doesn’t? I really wanted to combine two of my favourite sweet treats into one healthy recipe! Chocolate Protein Brownie Mini Donuts 🍩!!!
I added chocolate plant based whey protein and cocoa powder and almond milk! These mini brownie were sooo rich and moist. I topped them with dairy free chocolate for some added chocolatey goodness! 🍫🍩🍩🍩🍩
I love using cocoa powder. Cocoa has been around for centuries. It is used in Medicines and body care rituals worldwide. Cocoa comes from beans produced by the Theobroma Cacao tree. Cocoa contains polyphenols, which are rich in antioxidantsl . Cocoa consumption can improve heart and blood vessel health and neurodegenerative diseases, improve your mood, and improve your skin. Overconsumption of chocolate is not going to be good for blood sugar control, cocoa does have some anti-diabetic effects. Studies have shown that a higher intake of flavanols, including those from cocoa, can result in a lower risk of type 2 diabetes. Cocoa products are associated with a lower weight, and the addition of cocoa to your diet may help achieve faster weight loss.
These donuts were so simple to make and you only need a few ingredients. This makes 8 Mini donuts.

1/3 cup almond milk
