Calories 92kcal


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 scoops chocolate whey protein powder (44 grams)
  • 4 Tablespoons Confectioners sweetener (I use Monk Fruit Confectioners sweetener)
  • 6 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • For Frosting:
  • 2 ounces Light cream cheese, softened 
  • 2 Tablespoons Light chocolate syrup
  • 1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder (33 grams)
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons sugar-free chocolate pudding mix
  • Rainbow sprinkles


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two (6-count) donut pans with non-stick spray.
    Add flour, chocolate protein powder, confectioners sweetener, cocoa powder and baking powder to a large bowl. Whisk to combine the dry ingredients.
  • Add the egg whites, pumpkin and applesauce to the dry ingredients. Using a spatula, gently stir until just combined. (Try not to over-mix.)
    Carefully spoon the batter into the greased donut cavities about ⅔ of the way full. (Don’t overfill.)
    Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely and then remove from the donut pan.
  • For Frosting:
    Blend together all frosting ingredients until smooth. If frosting is too thick, you can thin it with a little fat free milk.
    Frost cooled donuts then top each donut with a pinch of rainbow sprinkles. Enjoy!
