Banana & Blueberry Protein Donuts

At last, the guilt-free vegan protein donut you’ve been waiting for...

Donuts are cropping up everywhere these days but few of them are good for you. Loaded with sugar and cooked in run-of-the-mill vegetable oil, your average donut can cause your insulin spike, a giddy feeling and hunger pangs. This baked vegan protein donut contains no added refined white sugar, has blueberries (which are low in calories,  high in nutrients, reduce DNA damage and may even help protect against ageing and cancer). The vegan protein in them will help curb hunger and reduce your need to snack. The medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil will help promote weight loss and fuel your brain. This could be just the mid afternoon snack to replace your coffee routine.
