Donuts and coffee were made for each other as cookies were made for milk. This recipe creates a fusion of this amazing team, a chocolate covered coffee donut with a touch of coconut... there's nothing but amazingness in this recipe!


These are baked, healthy donuts! An indulgent donut recipe without all the crazy inflammatory ingredients, we are keeping it nice and simple, plus with some good substitutes.



From organic greek yogurt that will provide a good amount of protein to coconut flour that provides fiber. The toppings are also great, a good dose of real good chocolate from Jojo's, gluten free and low carb chocolate for the win! Plus we are sprinkle some coconut on top!



Here are some of the basic ingredients used in these Mocha Coconut Protein Donuts:

  • Coconut flour

  • Egg

  • Egg whites

  • Plain greek yogurt (organic)

  • Granulated monk fruit (PURELYHL for discount)

  • Cinnamon

  • Baking soda

  • Ground coffee

Some of the basic ingredients here, nothing new or crazy! You that my staples are some of these included in this recipe; coconut flour, a great low carb and gluten free flour susbtitute and granulated monk fruit! No blood sugar spikes so it's keto and diabetic friendly! You can use PURELYHL for Lakanto's discount.



These are also super easy to make! I think that baked donuts are easier than deep fried donuts... plus they are healthier and better for you! You just prepare the mix, pour it into the donut molds and bake!



Tips for baking donuts!

  • Use a silicone mold container! I got mine at Amazon.

  • Freeze them before taking them out of the container, it's way easier and less probable of them crumbling and it's also easier to top them when they are frozen.

  • Spread the dough using your hands, and a bit of water!



Those are little hacks that I learned from baking donuts and they are truly useful! You can also be sure that these can also be kept in the freezer without a problem... ready to attack that sweet tooth!



Here's how I made these Mocha Coconut Protein Donuts:

  1. Preheat the your oven at 370.

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a deep bowl.

  3. Incorporate liquid ingredients and mix well.

  4. Pour the mix using a spoon into 9 silicone donut baking containers.

  5. Bake for 20-24 minutes.

  6. Once the bites are baked and cooled. Melt the the chocolate bars, add the cream cheese and stir well.

  7. Using a small spatula or knive top each donut with the chocolate cream cheese mix and then top with shredded coconut.
