Protein-Packed Blueberry Donuts That Are WAY Better Than Dunkin'

Ariane Resnick

Donuts from Dunkin' and Krispy Kreme sure are tasty, but they're also loaded with sugar, unhealthy oils and highly processed ingredients. If you're searching for an easy-to-make alternative that you won't regret indulging in, look no further than these Paleo Blueberry Donuts.

They taste remarkably similar to your standard blueberry cake doughnut, only they're gluten free, protein-rich and low in sugar (each donut contains 6.54 grams of sugar, compared to 21 grams in a Dunkin' blueberry donut). Now if that doesn't make you shout "Mmm... donuts!" we're not sure what will.

This paleo treat gets its moistness from yogurt and avocado oil, and is protein-packed thanks to almond flour and coconut flour. And instead of being deep fried in partially hydrogenated oil, the donuts are baked for just 15 minutes in the oven.

The stunning red glaze on top — made from honey and raspberries mixed with coconut oil — is optional, but we say go the extra mile to make your donuts especially Instagram-worthy.

One donut provides 283 calories, 8.09 grams protein, 23.91 grams total fat and 30.39 grams total carbohydrates.
