- 1 tablespoon Genuine Health fermented vegan proteins+
- 4 teaspoons coconut oil, melted
- 4 teaspoons cacao powder
- 1 drop alcohol-free stevia, optional
- Preheat oven to 350F and lightly oil a 6-count donut pan. Set aside.
- Add fermented protein powder, cacao powder, baking soda and salt to a medium-sized bowl. Whisk to combine and set aside.
- Add chopped plantain, room temperature eggs, melted coconut oil and vanilla to the jug of your high-powered blender. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Meanwhile, melt chocolate. Then, add melted chocolate to the blender. Whip until combined.
- Drop plantain mixture in with dry ingredients. Mix with a spoon until incorporated.
- Spoon batter into a piping bag or large plastic bag and cut off the tip. Pipe the batter into the prepared donut pan, ¾ of the way up the mold. Once complete, place in oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to sit in the pan for a couple of minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool for 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, add frosting ingredients to small, wide bowl. Drop each donut; one by one, into prepared frosting. Place on cooling rack and top with optional chocolate chips.
- Serve immediately, store in the fridge for 2-3 days or freezer for 2 months.

Chocolate Protein Powder: replace the cacao powder with an equal amount of protein powder
No-Sugar Dark Chocolate: you could replace this with ¼ cup cacao powder and ¼ cup melted cacao butter. If you go this route, there will be no sweetener in your chocolate. You could add ¼ cup xylitol to the recipe, adding to the melted chocolate mixture while melting.
Grain Allergy or Paleo: fermented grains are in the protein powder. You may or may not react to it. If you don’t want to play with fire, it’s all good. You can use extra cacao powder or use your favorite grain-free protein powder.
