Gingerbread Donuts

Festive, delicious and healthy.

These ginger spiced donuts are gluten free, dairy free and sweetened with just a touch of coconut sugar. A great healthy treat just in time for Christmas.

For a protein boost, we have added Amazonia plant-based vanilla protein powder. We love adding this to our desserts to enhance the nutrient density without altering the taste.


This recipe can also be used to make a loaf – better yet, add some chocolate chips for a decadent, festive ginger spiced chocolate treat.
