You know that old saying, if you can’t take the heat, then get out of the kitchen? Ya, well that doesn’t apply to this recipe. It is gonna make you want to RUN to the kitchen. We all know the weather is getting chilly and we need a little warmth to spice up this cold season. These donuts are inspired by my favorite Mexican hot chocolate recipe.
As much as I love a cute mug filled with hot chocolate and topped with marshmallows while I cuddle by the fire, I just DONUT always have time for that. See what I did there?! This recipe helps me to not only take my cocoa to-go but add a little protein.
Okay you know I will make all kinds of excuses for chocolate, donuts, and well sugar. Chicks lifting a donut to their mouth…fitness. But really, if you are gonna have a sweet treat, make it work a little for you too. I was recently invited to attend a breakfast with a handful of other Seattle foodies hosted by Bolthouse Farms to sample their new plant protein milk. It was so good I had to see if it could work in my baking. Bolthouse Farms sent me home with a few flavors
fall in love with try. I may have snuck a couple sips of it in while I made these donuts, before Celeste found the Chocolate and drank 2 bottles of it. Dairy fat-free kids chugging chocolate milk is frowned upon, so thankful we found this safe protein packed option to work into our daily routine. Spoiler alert- it bakes the same as milk.
I hope you get all warm and fuzzy inside for these donuts the same as I did. I have really grown to love baked donuts, the best part is you can top them with anything, even marshmallows. Though, now that I know how to make them I may need to add a few more burpees to my fitness routines. #sorrynotsorry
