Plant Protein Donuts

plant protein donut recipe

We couldn't believe it either when we first saw this recipe. A plant-based, high protein, dairy-free and vegan friendly donut recipe is possible and you can make these yourself at home. 

Donut worry if you don't have a donut pan, you can grab one from Kmart Austraia for $5 here, or you can try any of these creative methods of making your own donut shapes in this Donut Pan Substitute blog. 

But first, let's get the list of ingredients for you...


  • 1 cup all purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar

  • 1 scoop (44g) PranaOn Power Plant Protein in Original (unflavoured)

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp himalayan salt

  • 1/2 cup & 2 tbsp oat milk

  • 1 egg replacer (such as Bob Red Mills)

  • 1 tbsp melted nuttalex

  • 1 tsp vanilla essence


  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar/ raw caster sugar

  • 1 tsp grounded cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup melted nuttalex


  • Pre-heat the oven to 170-180 degrees C and spray pan with oil

  • Whisk the flour, coconut sugar, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, salt in a large bowl. Pour in the oat milk, egg replacer (as per instructions on packet), melted nuttalex and vanilla essence into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix well with a wooden spoon until mixture combines.

  • Piping the batter into the donut mould (you can purchase these from Kmart Australia for just $5 here) is the easiest otherwise spoon the batter into the donut pan. Fill about 1/2 full, try not to overfill as the donut will rise and you will lose the hole shape.

  • Bake for 20 mins or until the edges are lightly golden.

  • Transfer onto rack and leave to cool for 2-3 mins.


  • Stir the sugar and cinnamon together in a medium bowl.

  • Melt nuttalex in a medium bowl

  • Dip the donuts into the melted butter on both sides or one side if you prefer. Dunk the donuts into the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat.

  • Best eaten immediately or within a day (if they last).

WARNING: These are very addictive and delicious!!
