Modern Protein Doughnuts


Protein doughnuts… this may seem like an oxymoron or even an abomination of one of the world’s greatest baked goods.  However, it can be done and done well.  The key ingredient is Vanilla Ice Cream flavor ModernPROTEIN.  Our protein is not only without common fillers but tastes just like melted vanilla ice cream.  We reached out to our TEAM chef to whip up something that would fit into our current diet and would keep us from stopping at the local Krispy Kreme on the way to work.   Enjoy!




Dry: Wet:
  • 1 Egg
  •  2oz Greek Yogurt



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

  3. Add wet ingredients and stir to form a batter.

  4. Coat a circular doughnut pan with cooking spray and transfer batter.

  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes and use a toothpick to see if it’s baked through.

  6. Transfer doughnuts to a separate plate.

  7. Mix ModernPROTEIN and yogurt to form a thick pudding (this is your glaze).

  8. Dip doughnut into the glaze; letting the remaining glaze drip over the bowl, and set it on a plate.

  9. Apply mini M&M’s®.

If you give a bodybuilder a cookie… this is book I’m working on.    A children’s book about the moral dilemma of one man who had to pick between cookies and abs.  I think it’ll be popular...  Cookies are one of my weaknesses mainly because the serving size usually throws me off.

This generally only happens during long intense exercise, or when carbohydrates are severely restricted, because the presence of the hormone insulin (which is released by your body when you eat carbs) squashes fat burning and ketone production.
