  • 1 ½ scoops Quest® Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder
  • 2 tablespoons warm water (105°F to 115°F)
  • 1 envelope yeast
  • 11 tablespoons whole milk (lukewarm)
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ½ tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons oat flour
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup coconut oil (for frying)





  1. Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water, and let stand for 5 minutes, or until foamy.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the yeast mixture, milk, applesauce, salt, eggs, and butter.
  3. Add Quest Protein Powder®, almond meal, coconut flour and 1 cup of the oat flour. Mix for a few minutes stirring with a wooden spoon.
  4. Mix in 1 tablespoons of oat flour, until the dough no longer sticks to the bowl. Knead for about 5 minutes, or until smooth.
  5. Place the dough into a greased bowl, and cover. Set in a warm place to rise (about 30 minutes).
  6. Sprinkle a remaining 1 tablespoon of oat flour onto the surface where dough will be rolled out.
  7. Gently roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a floured doughnut cutter. Let doughnuts sit out to rise again (about 30 minutes). Cover loosely with a cloth.


  1. Stir together powdered zero calorie sweetener, sugar-free maple syrup, Quest Protein Powder® and maple extract until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Cook bacon at 400°F for 15 or until crispy. When bacon is cooled crumble the bacon and set aside.


  1. Heat coconut oil in a small sauce pan to 350°F (175°C). Slide doughnuts into the hot oil using a wide spatula. Cook for 1 minute 30 seconds turning doughnuts over half way through. Fry donuts on each side until golden brown.
  2. Remove from hot oil, to drain on a wire rack.
  3. Dip donuts into the maple glaze while still hot, top with bacon crumbles and set onto wire racks to drain off excess.
