1/4cupavocado oilcan substitute melted butter or vegetable oil
2tablespoonsGreek yogurtsour cream also works
2ozchocolate chipssugar free (or a chocolate bar)
2tablespoons chopped nutsoptional
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In one bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Protein powders can clump so be very thorough.
In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet until the mixture is well incorporated. The texture should be pudding-like.
Grease the donut pan. (I use avocado oil spray)
Spoon or pipe the batter into the pan leaving about 1/4 inch of space at the top for the donuts to expand as the bake.
Bake at 300 F and at 10 minutes turn on the convection. Check for doneness around 14 minutes. Donuts are done when set and a knife inserted at the thickest part comes out clean.
Allow to cool on a rack completely before frosting.
Combine ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.
Microwave for 20 seconds and check; chocolate should just be starting to melt and the cream should be hot. If chocolate is still solid, microwave for 10 more seconds.
Stir ingredients to combine and help chocolate to melt fully.
Spoon or pipe chocolate ganache over the donuts.
Add chopped nuts (if using) while the ganache is still warm,
