These donuts are light as air but taste so indulgent. They use a basic wet into dry recipe, that I so love.

I added some Form protein powder to these but if you don’t want to use it then just add more flour in place and an extra tbs of cocoa powder.

I gave these a pretty white and ruby chocolate glaze as valentines was upon us. but a simple dark chocolate in place of the white and a sprinkle of toasted crushed peanuts are another favourite way to serve these.

You can also swap in the peanut butter for hazelnut or cashew, equally as delicious.
