  1. Yum! This is perfect for fall! How many donuts are in a serving and what meal is this approved for?

    1. Yes! They say to bake at 350 degrees. So just divide the batter amongst 10 muffin slots and fill the other 2 empty slots with water (so the pan doesn’t burn) and bake, as they say, for 12-15 minutes. The batter is interchangeable and can be used for muffins, a loaf, and probably regular baked donuts, too.

        1. Hey babe! Yes, you can refrigerate them in a meal prep or glass container for 3 – 4 days.

    2. A mini cupcake tin would work too – – and it would give you smaller, round bites more similar to a donut hole!

        1. Mine made 20, so 2 would equal 1 donut hole. I had 4 with a piece of fruit (equivalent of 2 from the cake pop mold) for my M1, but whatever works with your calorie needs.

          1. What could be used in place of almond meal?

        2. I used a mini muffin pan! Mine made 20 muffins, so since the recipe says it makes 10 servings, the serving size would be 2 muffins. They are sooo delicious that I wish the serving size was ALL THE MUFFINS!! lol

  2. I cannot wait to try these. I love everything fall!! I don’t have a cake pop pan so I may just try with my donut pan.

    1. I made these this morning in my donut pan and they came out perfect! So soft and delicious 😊

      1. Did you use the big donut pan instead of holes? I want to make large ones but do I do something different for time or degrees?

  3. Hi ladies! I made mine into cookies instead so I think you could use this recipe for a lot of things, including muffins! I followed this same recipe (though I didn’t use perfect fit protein) and it turned out just fine. I didn’t have a mold and didn’t feel like rolling into “balls” so I just used a cookie scoop and baked. They spread some so it turned out like cookies but still just as good. My husband ate more of them than I did! YUMMMMMY!

    1. Did you substitute anything in for the perfect fit protein? I’m just trying to figure out options to not always use it in all my cooking. Thx!

  4. Made these and they’re awesome! I used a mini muffin tin and was able to fill all 24 slots in it with batter. I used vanilla perfectFit but I think the Pumpkin Spice one will work best when that comes out! Also a tip is I couldn’t get the cinnamon sugar to stick at all onto the donuts so I sprayed a bit of coconut oil before rolling in the topping.

  5. @toneitup I’m allergic to tree nuts! Would the ratio of ingredients be the same for something like quinoa flour instead of almond meal?

  6. These are amazing!! I have made four batches in 2 days! I took a dozen into work and my staff loved them :) I actually made mini muffins instead of donut holes, only cause I had the pan! Totally recommend! Thanks for the recipe, I can’t wait for the fall challenge!

  7. Love them! Since I don’t have a donut or cake pop pan, I made them as muffins. The only thing I found was that they needed a little longer to bake but they taste delicious!

  8. Will we get a specific meal plan for the 31 day challenge or are we using the regular nutrition plan and choosing what we want for the 31 days?

  9. Is there anything that can be subbed for almond meal? We have nut allergies in our family.

  10. I’m not good a good baker :( I attempted to make muffins from Bikini Series Plan and I don’t think they came out right. Maybe I didn’t bake them long enough… Any tips on what almond meal to use?

    1. I’m wondering when we’all get the fall challenge meal plan too! I need to get grocery shopping ahead of time!!!! Please let us know. Saturday 10/1 is less than 5 days away

  11. I just wanted to confirm that this is the nutritional information for one donut hole?? I read somewhere that a serving is 2-3 holes, so that would be (for 3) just over 300 calories per serving? I’m assuming since it says each hole has 6 g of protein but I just wanted to be sure :)

    1. I think the nutrition information is for 2-3 holes. So it would be 103 cals, 6g protein for 2-3 holes, depending how many your batch made. I used a mini muffin tin and they made 20, so my serving is 2 muffins :)

        1. I got an email saying the nutritional info (103 cals) is actually per donut hole not per serving of 2-3. Really good to know since I could probably eat 10 of them if I let myself!! Yum :)

          1. it’s per donut hole if your batch only made 10 servings, which is how many the recipe is supposed to make! so if your batter made 20 holes, then 10 servings would be 2 donut holes, which would equal 103 calories for 2!

  12. Can we substitute something for people who are allergic to nuts? I can’t use almond meal or almond milk. Would whole wheat flour and skim milk be an ok substitute?

  13. Are there any substitutions for tree nut products that are TIU approved, like Flax Milk? I became allergic to tree nuts a few months ago :( Also, would the ratios for something other than almond meal and almond milk be the same if I used something else?

  14. I must have done something wrong because mine tasted like playdough :( I followed the instructions exactly but maybe I didn’t cook them long enough? Every time I cook with perfectfit I feel like its always uncooked on the inside. Any advice??

  15. These aren’t my favorite but my friend is obsessed with them. She has made then for every holiday party we’ve gone too and other people love them too. There’s just something about the texture i don’t really like. I like the pumpkin muffins way better.

  16. I can use the Toneitup pumpkin spice for tiu protein (I dont have Vanilla) If i use same one with pumpkin pie spice is that ok….
