Protein Powder in Keto Baking

I like using protein powder in keto baking. Not only does it supply extra protein in your meal, but it substitutes as a flavorless flour and this non-gritty. Protein powder can produce a dry baked good, so make sure you balance it out by adding lots of liquid and fat. can of perfect keto protein powder My favorite protein powder to mix and bake with is by Perfect Keto. Their whey protein powders are keto approved, come from grass-fed animals, and contain a small amount of MCT oils. The best protein powder flavors to use in recipe are unflavored or vanilla.

Substitutes for Sour Cream

The sour cream is in this recipe to provide moisture. Protein powder can produce a dry, crumbly baked good. The sour cream adds fat and moisture to help balance out the protein powder. It also provides a creamy flavor. Sour cream is keto approved. One tablespoon of sour cream has 0.3 grams of carbs so it is keto friendly. It is also higher in fat and has protein. If you don’t want to use sour cream in this doughnut recipe, you can substitute with a full fat greek yogurt or heavy cream.

      1. If you’re going to call 1 donut hole a serving, then I’d say 4 servings with a cup of coffee (if not still fasting) fits nicely into a keto lifestyle. Great recipe. ?

  3. I make these for my daughter-in-law Melissa?. She loves them. Me too of course but happy wife makes for a happy son?

  4. Just made these and let me say they’re to die for!! I didn’t have xanthan gum so I just used a 1:1 ratio of cornstarch and they came out fine. Thanks for the awesome recipe!:)

  5. I’d really like to try this, it seems so easy and the ingredients are super simple—except for protein powder and sour cream, neither of which we have (or ever had). Since the sour cream is there to balance out the protein powder, can I get away with removing both ingredients?

    1. You can substitute low carb yogurt for the sour cream. The sour cream helps to balance the flavor of the donut to give it an authentic flavor. The protein powder works to puff up the donuts as they cook. You might be able to substitute with coconut flour but the texture won’t 100% be the same.
