  • 1/2 cup oat flour use certified GF oat flour if making gluten-free
  • 3 tbsp protein powder of choice I used Sunwarrior chocolate protein
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder I used Hershey's
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg white whisked
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk sub for milk of choice
  • 1 tsp Stevia or granulated sweetener of choice
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • ***Topping***
  • 4 tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp + 1-2 tsp water - may need more if peanut butter is still too pasty
  • 3/4 cup chocolate Chex cereal
  • 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 6-mold donut pan with non-stick cooking spray
  • Combine all donut ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine. Spoon evenly into donut molds and bake for 10-12 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, transfer donuts to a wire rack with a paper towel placed underneath.
  • Mix PB2 and water in a wide bowl. The mix should be much thinner than traditional peanut butter. Place the donuts face-down in the bowl of PB2 "frosting" to create a thin coating on the outside. Repeat with all 6 donuts and place back on wire rack.
  • Place Chex cereal in a Ziploc bag and lightly crush (I just used my hands). Drizzle crushed Chex cereal evenly on top of donuts.
  • Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 20-30 seconds, until melted. Mix until smooth.
  • Using a small spoon, dip spoon in melted chocolate and lightly drizzle over donuts, using a back and forth motion. Serve!
