Vanilla Chai Protein Donuts (Paleo & Keto)

I think that donuts are just a food that everyone loves, it might be the fun shape or the glazing. Either way these donuts are just the perfect snack or dessert to enjoy at any moment since these are healthy, easy to make and extremely delicious .


No bake gut friendly and delicious donuts! One of the best parts of this recipe is super easy to make, trust me... so basically is just mix, pour and bake, extremely easy! But these donuts are gut friendly since we are skipping the gluten and all the inflammatory and refined sugars.



About these Vanilla Chai Protein Donuts:

Chai and vanilla latte flavors! But with that I also wanted to include a twist, a fun a de delicious twist by just adding some of crushed fat bombs for the frosting, you are going to love them... bakery style!


To add that extra magical factor of this recipe I also included some of the Marigold Vanilla Latte Protein Coffee, such a game changer! And it really brings up that extra taste of rich vanilla latte and just another extra protein.


Key Ingredients:

Adding some protein powder for extra creaminess and a satisfying filling. I have been also obsessed with the Marigold Vanilla Latte Protein Coffee, their ingredients are always the best and the taste is always delicious too, this smooth vanilla is basically a healthy, dreamy and indulgent vanilla latte (keto and gluten free!).



Chai tea the magic factor! For the chai touch I simply prepared some tea bags in 1/2 cup of hot almond milk and let it soak for a couple of minutes to let the flavor all out and finally squeeze the tea bags,


I also used some keto fats bombs to add that crunch. The yummiest in chocolate chip cookie dough (I'm obsessed!) from Marigold , these are also keto certified, so that means they are LIT.



The base of this Vanilla Chai Donuts:

The base is made with simple ingredients and Marigold Vanilla Latte Protein Coffee made with grass-fed collagen to keep it nutrient dense and gut friendly. Plus some almond flour as part of our delicious base.



Overall, these are the ingredients needed for this Vanilla Chai Protein Donuts:

  • Almond Flour
