What I Ate Wednesday – Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Donuts

Happy Wednesday friends! In the spirit of it almost being St. Patty’s Day, I decided to celebrate a little early with these Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Donuts! If you share my love for this flavor combination, you’re going to love the recipe!

But first, let’s take a peek at some of my favorite eats from last week!

Breakfast

Snickerdoodle French Toast with lots of coffee were in order after a great powerlifting session! Finally getting some of my strength back after taking it much lighter the past month while I’ve been recovering. Try it topped with fruit and sugar-free syrup!

 

Morning Snack

Chocolate Coconut Best Bar Ever for a mid-morning snack. Perfect ratio of protein, carbs and fats! Just look at all of the chunks of almonds and coconut flakes! These bars are very filling and will easily tide you over to your next meal!

 

Lunch

Always honor your cravings! Turkey pepperoni, broccoli and mozarella Flatout pizza with a side of Alexia sweet potato puffs. Strange combination but so good!

 

These Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Donuts are healthy, high in protein, and delicious!

Whip these up for your St. Patty’s Day celebration or for any morning you’re feeling you need a little pep in your step! These are a chocolate mint lover’s dream! Happy baking and enjoy!
