If you are looking for a great guilt free dessert that is packed with protein, look no further. These fluffy baked chocolate peanut butter donuts are exactly what you need! They are EASY to make and easier to eat!
- 1 cup (153g) All-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup (57g) Chia seeds
- 1/2 cup (57g) Vedge Peanut Butter Cup Protein
- 3 tbsp (15g) Cacao powder
- 1 tbsp (11g) Baking powder
- 1/4 tsp (1g) Sea salt
- 1 1/2 cup Soy milk
- 1/3 cup Maple syrup
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 42g (¼ cup) Dairy-free chocolate chips
- ½ tbsp room temperature maple syrup
- 1 tsp room temperature soy milk
1. Preheat the oven to 325F/163C. Set a silicone doughnut mold pan aside to have it ready. In a mixing bowl, combine together the all-purpose flour, chia seeds, protein powder, cacao powder, baking powder, and sea salt. Mix.
2. Then pour in the soy milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix until well, combined.
3. Spoon the batter into the doughnut mold, to make 6 doughnuts. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then tap the doughnuts out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
4. For the glaze: Melt the chocolate chips in 10 sec increments in the microwave until the chocolate chips are softer. Then whisk with a fork and add the maple syrup and soy milk. Whisk until smooth. (It may clump up a bit but it will get smooth as long as you’re not using cold soy milk.)
5. Dip the chocolate doughnuts in the glaze to cover, or use a knife or silicone spatula to glaze them.

Protein is often referred to as the “building blocks of life”, and for good reason. From our hair to our fingernails to our muscles, protein is the glue that holds each cell in our bodies together and makes up many major hormones and antibodies. That's why getting enough protein in our daily diets is important. New evidence suggests the exact amount we need depends on a host of factors: our diet, age, health, activity level and - for pregnant women - whether we’re eating for two. Here we outline how much protein we need to eat, how to calculate our needs and which people may need more.
Pre-workout supplements can be one of the most effective exercise supplements available on the market today. Whether we’re looking for an extra burst of energy after work or a pick-me-up in the morning—pre-workouts can provide us with much needed stimulation and energy to make the most of our sessions. Although they can benefit our workouts and bring us closer to our goals, some supplements in this category can have harmful ingredients and side effects that can hinder our progress and negatively affect our health.
We’ve covered the benefits of vitamin B12 here, so stressing the importance of vitamin B12 may be redundant. In short, vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient, meaning the body needs it to remain healthy. It must be consumed through the foods we eat, since our bodies are unable to produce it on our own. It’s used for so many processes, including red blood cell creation, DNA synthesis, energy production, and brain and nerve cell protection. If we don’t get enough B12 in our diet, we run the risk of developing a nutrient deficiency, which unfortunately many people around the world encounter. Signs and symptoms of a deficiency can include headaches, confusion, weakness, fatigue, and anemia.
Creatine monohydrate is considered one of the top ergogenic aids on the market today. Despite its wide usage, popularity, and research surrounding the supplement’s benefits, female athletes may sometimes be misinformed on the usage, safety, and purpose of creatine as an exercise performance aid.
