The donuts themselves are sugar-free but we did add in chocolate chips. We know what you are probably thinking, “chocolate chips contain sugar?” Yes, we know this.  And to us that is okay. We don’t enjoy them everyday.
You can use Lily’s chocolate chips which are a bit lower in sugar.

the BEST healthy baked donut made from gluten-free grain-free ingredients and egg-free and low in sugar. Made with chocolate chips, plantains and pea protein ||

This recipe is based off our this original 3 ingredient donut recipe.

Note: using protein powder does change the final texture a little bit in these donuts. We find them to have a dense texture and whatever protein powder you are using it will shine through. So make sure you use a protein powder you LOVE.

  • 5 tablespoons protein powder (we used pea protein)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, semi solid
  • 12 tbsp chocolate chips
  • Protein frosting:
  • 34 tablespoons protein powder (we used pea protein)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • a few drops of stevia ** optional
  • Add water 1 tablespoon at time until you get the desired consistency.
  • Add maple syrup or drops of stevia to taste if you desire a sweeter frosting.

Option for using plantain flour

  • 1/4 cup plantain flour (1 oz)
  • 4 tablespoons tigernut flour (3/4oz)
  • 4 tablespoons protein powder (1 oz) * we used pea protein


  1. Peel a large plantain and should weigh around 6 oz. Roughly chop plantain and place in blender with coconut oil. Puree until smooth.
  2. Next add in remaining ingredients.

  5. Bake at 350 degree for about 13 minutes.
  6. For the protein frosting:
  7. Place all ingredients in a bowl and start to mix. Will need to add in some water until desired frosting consistency is achieved. Spread onto donuts.

Do you think I could use raw sweet potato in place of the plantain?

purelytwins April 7, 2015 - 9:05 pm

Heather, you could give it a try or follow the plantain flour one and use any flour of choice

Loved the video! But why do you like plantains instead of bananas, and can they be subbed?

purelytwins April 7, 2015 - 9:06 pm

You can see why we love plantains more here – plantains have more starch so the provide a different texture, you could try bananas but texture will probably be a little different

You guys ROCK! I made these yesterday and have a feeling I’m going to have to run to the grocery store again today to get more plantains. I would be sooo happy if you made more of these flourless, egg free recipes 🙂

purelytwins April 8, 2015 - 10:14 pm

🙂 thanks Kayla, and you got it. We will do our best to make more flourless egg-free recipes!

These look great!!! Do you happen to know how many calories in one donut? Thanks for the recipe!! Love the blog 🙂

This recipe was delicious! I added lemon zest to the frosting and it turned out great.

Question: How many plantains do you use for 6 oz? I’ve made several of your recipes and I can’t seem to get the same consistency. Mine always are doughy, no matter how long I leave them in the oven. I think the problem is that I used one plantain for this recipe. Though, it still turned out DELICIOUS!!!

This recipe was awesome but I substituted the plantains for bananas and it still tasted amazing. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
