Recipe Tips:

These donuts are incredibly easy to make. You just need a donut pan, a big mixing bowl, and a few simple ingredients! Eggs, almond flour, maple syrup, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, and then some vanilla collagen. Oh and of course some sprinkles!

My biggest tip for this recipe is to not overflow the donut cups. I fill them up about 3/4 of the way. It allows them to be fluffy without overflowing and losing the donut shape. Plus you don’t want to waste any batter!

Why I Love Collagen:

I love to add collagen into my recipes because it gives them more protein. Also I love the benefits I personally see from adding collagen into my diet. I think adding it in has helped with my joint health as well as my hair/skin. But everyone is different and sees different results. Always do what works best for you and remember that I’m not a doctor.

Not only do I like adding it to easy desserts like this, I add collagen daily to my coffee. It adds 9 grams of protein and only 45 calories. I like to add a flavored one because it’s a healthier alternative to creamer in your coffee. Plus it dissolves right in and isn’t messy like adding protein into your coffee. Add a little unsweetened almond milk and it’s the perfect way to start the day!

What Collagen I Use:

I love this Ancient Nutrition Vanilla Collagen. All of the products they make are incredibly high quality, ethically sourced. Whenever I’m buying animal protein of any kind, that’s always what I look for. None of their collagens have an artificial flavor taste at all, which is important to me as well. Also it isn’t chalky like some protein powder can be. You can find the collagen I used here. Every product they make is not only delicious but also the best quality around!

The vanilla collagen adds the perfect touch to these Healthy Funfetti Donuts. Adds a little bit of protein with compromising the texture or taste. Plus it gives the perfect vanilla flavor!

How To Store Funfetti Donuts:

I store these donuts in the fridge for 4-5 days. You can eat them cold or warm them up in the microwave or toaster oven. I prefer the toaster oven because it keeps the texture better.
