    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. 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

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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. 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!

  5. 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?

  6. 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??

  7. 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.
