These protein-rich doughnuts are loaded with fiber-filled black beans, protein powder and nearly half a dozen eggs. Choose any heat-stable protein powder you prefer — chocolate, plain or vanilla — and feel free to skip the peanut butter glaze if you’re feeling something simpler.



1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Add the black beans, eggs, 1 cup sugar, oil, cocoa powder, protein powder, vanilla extract, baking soda and 3/4 tsp salt to a blender or processor and blend until the batter is uniform in texture.
3. Scoop batter into a doughnut pan and bake for 20 minutes.
4. Warm the peanut butter, 2 tbsp sugar and 1/4 tsp salt in a pan over low heat until spreadable. This is the peanut butter glaze.
5. Glaze doughnuts with the peanut butter glaze.

- If you prefer, feel free to swap out the avocado oil with algae oil or another neutral oil.
- These doughnuts are incredibly tender and, as a result, quite delicate! Exercise caution when removing them from the doughnut pan.
