Cinnamon Sugar Protein Donuts


IT'S NATIONAL DONUT DAY! Gosh, what a wonderful holiday. I feel like we should celebrate it every day. And you absolutely can with these amazing macro-friendly cinnamon sugar protein donuts! 

Ashleigh and I were brainstorming some recipes we could make for you guys today to honor this lovely holiday, and we narrowed it down to two. The recipe you see pictured here and a chocolate donut. Would you guys want a chocolate donut recipe?? Drop a comment in our insta post or on here and we'll create one!

These donuts have a Kodiak Cake base (as always, cause we love those and they're so convenient!) with a snickerdoodle flavoring from my very favorite SelectProtein! 


The cinnamon sugar topping uses Splenda, which gives it that flaky deliciousness without the added carbs! 


  • 159g Buttermilk Kodiak Cake Mix
    • 62g SELECT Snickerdoodle Protein
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla
    • 1/4C Splenda
    • water 

For Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • 1T Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2C Splenda (or desired amount, depending on the amount of cinnamon you want to taste)
  • No-Stick cooking spray. 


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix your Kodiak Cakes, protein, egg, vanilla, Splenda and water in a bowl until batter consistency is reached. 
  • Spoon batter into a ziplock bag and compress until all the air has been pushed out. Cut off one corner tip.
  • Grease donut pan and pipe in batter evenly. (6 donuts)
  • Bake in oven for 8-9 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • AS SOON as the donuts are done, take them out of the pan, spray the top with cooking spray and dip in your cinnamon/Splenda mixture. Set them on a rack to cool.
