Chocolate Mini Donuts recipe from Bulk Nutrients

Makes: 18 (22g donuts)Calories: 59Difficulty Level: ModeratePreparation time: 25 minutesCook time: 10 minutesTotal time: 35 minutes



  • 4 Tbsp flour of choice
  • 4 Tbsp hazelnut meal
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp coconut milk (lite)
  • 2 sachets (or 2 scoops) Protein Hot in Chocolate or Mug Cake in Choc Cherry
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 70g Dark organic chocolate melted
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder

Glazes - CHAI

  • 2 sachets (or 2 scoops) Protein Hot in Vanilla Chai (60g)
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 2 Tbsp water


  • 100g Dark Chocolate melted
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut oil melted
  • 2 sachets (or 2 scoops) Protein Hot in Chocolate (60g)


  • 5 Tbsp TheNuttyWhey Original or Caramel*
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 Tbsp water


  • Cacao nibs, peanut pieces, shredded coconut, goji berries or whatever your heart desires!


For the Donuts

  1. Set your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in one bowl.
  3. Combine all wet ingredients in another bowl.
  4. Combine the two by mixing well.
  5. The mix should resemble a cake batter and run off the spoon. (If mix is too thick, simply add an additional egg yolk).
  6. Spoon a Tbsp of mix into mini cupcake silicon cases or into a donut baking tray (if you are lucky enough to have one!).
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the centre is set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing from cases and cooling fully on a wire rack. Continue with remaining mix.
  8. To make into donuts use a ‘corer’ to remove the centre, or carefully cut with a knife.
  9. Store in an airtight container until ready to glaze.

For the Glazes

  1. Combine each mix in bowls. The mixes should be reasonably runny so that they coat the back of a spoon.
  2. If too runny they will thicken as they begin to set – place in the fridge for 5 minute intervals to speed this up. If too thick, simply add some additional liquid.
  3. Dip each donut into your glaze of choice top side first. Allow to stop dripping before placing onto a wire rack to begin setting. Sprinkle with your choice of toppings.
