Easy No-Bake Cinnamon Glazed Protein Donut Holes

Recipe by MaryCourse: Bites, Desserts


Prep time




  • for the donut holes:
    1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
    1 cup almond flour (can add more if texture is not firm enough)
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    1/2 creamy almond butter
    1/4 tsp almond extract
    1/4 cup thick coconut yogurt (brand: cocojune and you can add a little more if texture too dry)
    3 tbsp maple syrup
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    dash of almond extract (can omit)

    for the glaze:
    1 cup Lakanto powdered sugar
    2-3 tbsp almond milk (adjust for desired consistency)


  • prepare the donut holes:
    in a food processor, all of the ingredients until a thick dough forms.

    using your hands, roll the dough into small, bite-sized balls to form the donut holes.

    place the donut holes on a parchment-lined tray and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to firm up.
  • make the glaze:
    in a separate bowl, whisk together Lakanto powdered sugar and almond milk until smooth.

    adjust the milk quantity for your preferred glaze consistency.
  • glaze the donut holes:
    once the donut holes are chilled and firm, dip each one into the glaze, ensuring they are fully coated.

    place the glazed donut holes back on the parchment-lined tray.
  • chill and serve:
    return the tray to the refrigerator for an additional 15-20 minutes to allow the glaze to set.

    once the glaze is set, your easy no-bake cinnamon glazed donut holes are ready to be served!
