Chocolate Protein Donut Holes (Gluten-Free)

These donut holes do not contain dairy or gluten.  

Snacks are a game-changer in my house right now.  Navigating quarantine with young kids is tough, specially when the weather does not cooperate.  Snacks can help though, or at least diffuse a negative mood for a while.

I was looking through my recipes this weekend and realized I missed making donut holes.  I had forgotten how much my kiddos love them.  I have a vegan version of these chocolate donut holes in my blog.  This is a non-vegan option, just as healthy and nutritious.

Here are the details you need to make these donut holes at home:


1 cup Bob's Red Mill almond flour
3/4 cup Bob's Red Mill all purpose flour + 2 tbsp
1 scoop Trader Joe's pea protein powder 
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa + 1 tbsp 
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 banana (mashed)
1 egg
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk 
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp coconut sugar

Preheat oven to 350F.  Mix wet and dry ingredients separately.  Combine.  The mix will be sticky-  don't worry!.  Scoop out 1.5 tbsp mix and place on the donut hole tin.  Repeat for the rest of the mix.  You should get about 11 donut holes.  Bake for 15 minutes and let them cool on a rack.  Enjoy! 

Here are the nutrition facts for these donuts.  Not bad!  They had a brownie texture and feel very indulgent.

I am thinking of making a carrot cake version of these.  My kids seem to be into the idea!  

Enjoy this super easy and chocolate protein donut holes.  Take a photo and share on Instagram using #peoniesandalatte to show us your creations.
