Peanut Butter Doughnuts with Chocolate Glaze

These aren’t just your ordinary doughnuts, they’re PROTEIN doughnuts! Add your favorite peanut butter protein powder and start your day off the right way … by having doughnuts for breakfast. Is there even a better way?

Growing up, I remember staring into the doughnut case at a local doughnut shop (which has been closed for as long as I can remember). But I would always get the same one. Every single time. A chocolate long john with crushed peanuts. What can I say, I’ve always been a fan of the peanut butter/chocolate combo, even for breakfast.

It’s been a minute since I’ve made doughnuts. I usually prefer pancakes or waffles because I feel doughnuts should have a glaze or icing, and quite frankly, that sweet coating can quickly add up in Smart Points. However, since I recently made my Chocolate Fudge Sauce, I KNEW this would be perfect on those doughnuts I so desperately wanted.

And I was right. Chocolate-y, peanut butter-y, full of protein, and I can have 4 of them in one sitting and not bat an eye. Have you made the Chocolate Fudge Sauce yet? If not, you should because I have a few recipes lined up that incorporate this luscious spread. But first, we eat doughnuts.
