STEP 2: Pour batter into donut maker or donut baking mold (we got ours from Target) and bake until golden brown or until toothpick comes out clean! Enjoy plain or drizzle with maple frosting. If you’re using a baking mold, bake at 350° degrees for about 8 minutes or until cooked.

  1. My batter came out really dry when I finally mixed everything, is there something I missed?

  2. I’m making these today for the #selftiu challenge. Last time I made them there was a recipe for the frosting included- but I don’t see it here. Has it been posted some where else? Thanks!

  3. This isn’t it exactly, but its one I use and it works!
    1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
    1 Tb. coconut sugar
    1 Tb. maple syrup
    You can substitute the coconut sugar for stevia, just add to taste. Hope this helps!

  4. So I read the comments and is the maple, yogurt and honey the frosting? Because I mixed everything on the ingredients list together, but it looks like the last 3 ingredients are the frosting? I mean they tasted great, but I’d just like to know for sure.

    1. I’m sure you can…there’s nothing magic about the donut shape – it’s just cute. You might have to play around with the baking time a little depending on the size of your muffin tin. Just bake until a toothpick comes out clean.

  5. Hi ladies,
    Since my kids are getting bigger (3,5 y and almost 2 y) I want to put together a meal plan and snacks etc. that they can enjoy as well. However, I wondered if they are ok eating anything containing Perfect Fit proteinpowder? Thx :)

    1. I don’t think there is anything in the powder that would be harmful. My 4 y/o eats things that I make with the powder and seems to be fine. A lot of protein powders on the market have weird additives but with this one being plant based I would think it’s fine unless your LO is allergic to a particular ingredient.

    2. Hi Ditte! I’ve given my two year old plenty of smoothies made with Perfect Fit. I try to boost her protein consumption when possible. It seems to be completely ok with her, and I don’t worry too much about it since the ingredients are organic and safe. But I do stick to small amounts for her, no more than a half scoop or so ( usually a bit less). Hope this helps! :)

    3. My pediatrician said to add protein powder to baked goods for my kids. Since they don’t like to eat meat. When in doubt, ask their doctor.
