Mini Peanut Protein Donuts: Nutritionist's Recipe

Makes 14-16


  • 1 medium ripe banana or ½ cup sweet potato purée
  • 1 sachet Peanut Butter protein
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 heaped tablespoon tapioca or rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon avocado or olive oil
  • To decorate: 1-2 tablespoons organic peanut butter


  1. Turn your donut machine on to preheat*.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a blender & purée until smooth.
  3. Spoon in 1 tablespoon of batter per donut, close the lid & cook for 4-5 minutes until golden & crisp. Repeat with the rest of the mix.
  4. Serve straight away topped with an artful smear of peanut butter, or pop in the fridge unglazed & use within 5 days/freeze for 3 months.
Motion Nutrition - Peanut Protein Donuts Glaze all your donuts with PB or freeze a few for later.
*If you don’t have a donut machine then use this batter to make delicious pancakes - simply cook heaped tablespoons of batter on a medium heat in a dry frying pan, flip when bubbles appear & cook for a further 30-60 seconds until firm to the touch.
