Put a healthier spin on these sinful snacks to turn no-go doughnuts into a diet-friendly protein-packed treat. 

Ingredients
For the batter
– ¼ cup coconut flour
– 2 egg whites
– 1 scoop Biogen ISO-Whey Premium Protein, chocolate brownie flavour
– 120g pumpkin, boiled and well drained
– 2 tbsp baking powder

Did you know: Coconut flour is a rich source of fibre, protein and healthy fats. It is an ideal replacement to refined flour as it does not contain any wheat or grains. It also has a low GI.

For the icing
– 40g light/medium cream cheese
– 1 scoop Biogen ISO-Whey Premium Protein, chocolate brownie flavour
– 1 tbsp honey
– 1 Biogen Night Feed Bar, crumbled

Biogen ISO-Whey Premium Protein contains a Tri-Matrix protein blend that includes whey protein hydrolysate, isolate and concentrate for optimal absorption and bioavailability – that means the amino acids get absorbed and get to work quicker to aid muscle repair, growth and recovery.
