¼ Cup Sprouted Grain Pancake Mix (see Note 1 below for subs)
¼ cup Liquid Egg whites
¼ Cup Almond Milk
1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Scoop (28g) Vanilla Cellucor Whey
1 Scoop (28g) San Rawfusion Vanilla Protein (see Note 2 below for subs)

Ingredients for the Frosting

2 Tbsp Greek Yogurt
1 scoop of Vanilla Whey

Directions for Doughnuts

1. Pre-heat oven to 350
2. Mix Raw Fusion protein powder (see Note 1 below for substitutions), egg, vanilla extract and pancake mix until you get a creamy consistency.
3. Pour batter in to a lightly oiled Doughnut-shaped pan (one like this one).
4. Bake for 15 min or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Directions for the Icing

For the icing (or frosting), just mix one scoop Cellucor whey with two tbsp Greek yogurt, stirring in a spoonful of almond milk at a time, until it reaches icing consistency To get different flavors of icing, just use different flavors of whey! And consider adding different toppings on your donuts – like flaked coconut, sprinkles, etc. To flavor your icing, use extracts like Vanilla, Mint, Lemon or with 100% Cocoa powder. To end up with bright-colored (e.g. the green) icing, use some natural food dye. Remember to let your donuts cool before icing, then… dig in!
