The Fit Fork's sugar-free donut recipe is a healthy dessert that is both protein-rich and low in calories. Specializing in healthy alternatives to popular fast food, dessert and beverage recipes, The Fit Fork shows readers how to make their very own autumnal dessert without the added guilt.
Made from a blend of traditional ingredients like baking powder, baking soda and coconut flour -- a nutritious alternative to traditional flour -- this recipe is also flavored with vanilla protein powder. The protein-enriched treat is also infused with ground nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon spices and features a light hint of salt.
While most donuts feature a sugary topping of sprinkles, this sugar-free dessert replaces processed sugars with nutrients like coconut oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. This garnish is added on top of a light cream cheese and pumpkin puree base and is the perfect way to celebrate autumnal holidays without over-indulging.
