Boy do I have a treat for you today because these are the most beautiful protein donuts you’ll ever see! In addition to their Pinterest worthy appearance, these little donuts aren’t just your run-of-the-mill donuts, they are also healthy donuts, and only require 3-ingredients! Yes, you heard me correctly… 3-ingredient donuts! 😱Now, I know what you may be thinking… “there is no way these 3-ingredient donuts are packed with protein and don’t require any baking whatsoever…” Well, believe it!

In fact, this recipe is a perfect treat for a warm or hot summer day and even a great snack or healthy dessert for the kids! All you need is a donut pan (these can be purchased at any grocery store or online), some parchment paper or clear plastic wrap, greek yogurt, Super Youth Collagen, your favorite jam/jelly/fruit preserves, and your favorite toppings!

A thought that crossed my mind when making these healthy donuts was “What is healthier? Jam, jelly, or fruit preserves?” 🤔

I’m pleased to inform you that I have the answer! Of course, you can use any one of the three that you prefer or have around the house. But, if you’d prefer to use a healthier option this information might be extremely helpful:

In jelly, the fruit that is used comes in the form of fruit juice. FDA requires that a product labeled as jelly must contain at least 55% fruit juice

In jam, the fruit comes in the form of fruit pulp or crushed fruit. FDA requires that a product labeled as jam have no less than 65% soluble solids (fruit pulp/crushed fruit).

In preserves, the fruit comes in the form of whole-cut pieces or chunks of fruit stored in a liquid (typically a syrup, juices, jam, or jelly).

So, if you’re looking for the healthiest option, it’s best to check your food label to look for the sugar content.

Now, the remaining two ingredients are already extremely healthy and nutritious. The main ingredients in these protein donuts are greek yogurt and Super Youth Collagen. Greek yogurt contains about 23g of protein per cup making this recipe perfect to curb your cravings and help keep you feeling fuller for longer. Because this recipe makes about six donuts in total, you will need about 3 cups of greek yogurt and at least one scoop of Super Youth Collagen for the whole recipe.

Adding just one scoop of Super Youth Collagen peptides will boost your protein intake and provide numerous health and beauty benefits to your daily routine! Super Youth will increase the elasticity and buoyancy of your skin, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. But that’s not all… Super Youth will help you grow stronger, longer, healthier hair and nails and may even prevent hair loss. You can expect to see improved bone and joint health, faster recovery times, and a better digestive system!

Each donut contains about 13g of protein (with only one scoop of Super Youth). By adding a second scoop to this recipe you can increase your protein to about 14-15 grams per donut, satisfying almost 30% of your daily protein requirement (taking into consideration of the Daily Reference Intake [DRI] guide for an adult female).
