Did you pack it well. I shove the scoop hard into the whey powder. As far as size I haven't measured it. I will later on this afternoon and get back to you.

I tried these the other morning but I made them into pancakes rather than frying (too lazy) they were very good...

I added a dash of cinnamon & nutmeg for a more donut taste...

Very nice for a change!

Also thanks for this recipe!!
How big is your scoop? I know mine is only 1/4 cup, so I'm just going to use a 1/3 cup measure cup to make it work.

I made these using whey protein isolate and adding a bit more stevia, but they tasted a bit eggy to me. Could I have done something wrong? Am I the only person who did not like these?

Thanks for posting this Skeeter! I'm going to try these. I like the sound of them because they don't have 4 different flour substitutes and 6 different sugar substitutes.

Oh my gosh, Skeeter, you're my best friend Those were FABULOUS. I made them this morning with orange flavoring. YUM! I did forget the butter, though , so they were a little dry, but I just spread butter on top and they were delish!

Hey Skeeter,
I finally got my vwp. I bought the same kind you have from wally world but mine says 2 carbs per scoop? Does your show 1 carb per scoop or does yours show fiber? Mine does not show any fiber listed. I have the body fortress vanilla.

So fill me in...what does yours say??

Ok...gotcha...I just made my first batch!
Need I say more!
I used your exact recipe with the only change being I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon in the batter.( I love cinnamon).
OMG! So yummy! I will have to check my ketones tomorrow to see if my level changes but if not, WATCH OUT!!
I will have waffles, pancakes and donuts at least once a week!!

Thanks ever so much!

How do you get the carb count of 1 per d. hole?

These are very small and so easy to scarf down that you can consume (or at least I can) 6 before I know it! That is still only 6 carbs but I do maintenance.

I got my vanilla whey protein powder in the isle with all the other nutritional supplements.
My VWPP has 2 carbs per scoop. 1 egg I count as 1 carb. 2 tblsp splenda I don't even count but could give it 2 just for the sake of counting.
So, I show the entire batch is only 4 carbs....am I missing something??

Also, I got 14 nice size donut holes from this recipe.

Ohhh, just tried these. Thanks so much, Skeeter, for posting this recipe. I screwed it up though I tried to double the recipe like you said you did and forgot the 2nd scoop of whey protein, so it was more like a pancake batter. Still tasted good though. Hubby thought they were yummy too. I will try them again tomorrow and maybe make them the "right" way.

ETA: Bahototh, these were not dry and were cooked all the way through, but then, like I said, I screwed them up.

I used this batter today for pancakes but it was not as good as the donuts were last night. I will be checking my ketones to see if I am still in ketosis.

I sure hope so cause those donuts were good!

Could not run to the kitchen fast enough to try these....my Mom used to make donuts by frying refrigerater biscuits when I was a kid...these reminded me of those.

I added 1 teaspoon on baking powder to mine and they puffed up nicely...then sliced them open and spread with sugarfree blackberry jam...jelly donuts!!!

Then I sat down and ate the whole batch....OY!!!! I guess it could have been worse...I could have eaten a whole box of Dunkin Muchins!

Hmmmm, that's interesting. Watch out for the granular Splenda. It actually has 1.5g of pure maltodextrin (a pure sugar) per level tbsp, 24g per Cup.

You should definitely be counting those...for sure.

Hey Jude, don't be afraid, take a bad thing and make it better.....

I have decided to switch over to stevia!

I think this would be the best option for me!


Thanks..........

Been doing low carb for over 4 years now and the granular splenda hasn't affected my weight. The little packets do not contain the filler that granular splenda does. I hate STEVIA.

Ok, so the packets are pure splenda?? I thought it was the other way around.
I have both types of splenda but thought it was the packets that had the filler??

The filler is what makes it able to be measured cup for cup. That is in the bulk granular splenda. The packets in what I had read has less. The splenda quick packs have even less but they have discontinued this. Check out your local Odd Lots and they might have some. I got 12 packages for a dollar each.

Hey Skeeter,
I think I may give this vwpp another try. After reading your note this am I got to thinking. I used 2 packets of real splenda in my donuts the other day.
I completely forgot how sensitive I am to those darn packets. So, I went and read the ingredients on my splenda box and the ingredients are : dextrose (sugar), maltodextrose (cornstarch derivative) and sucralose (fake sugar).
I stopped using the packets a while back b/c I noticed that ketones dropped significantly when I used them. But with my granular Altern, it did not.
Altern's ingredients are: Maltodextrin, Sucralose.
I have used it regularlly since then and have no problems with ketosis.
So the real splenda could be the demon in my donuts!!

So, I am going to wait until I get back to deep ketosis, and then will try the powder with either davinci's or altern. Then see if it effects my ketones.
If not, I will be one happy camper!

Thanks for you input. I really do not like stevia either and would rather stick to altern if it works for me!

I know Sweetzfree costs a lot, but it has 0 carbs 0 calories, and no fillers. It really saves carbs in desserts. My husband is diabetic. He is not supposed to use any sweeteners with maltodextrose. There are other brands besised Sweetsfree. The price on these is sometimes better. I bought sucralose liquid online and I have been very happy with the results.

I found Erythritol packets at Kroger. It is just 70% sweet as sugar so you might have to add a bit more but it is a natural sweetener without chemicals. I really like Erythritol. I buy the bulk from Netrition. I have been adding one packet of this and one packet of splenda and love the results.

dang these sounded so good..

i used the original recipe + 1t baking soda(someone mentioned)
no packets of splenda, instead I used carb free liquid splenda
my protein powder is 100% egg whites...Gold standard..
fried in coconut oil -virgin

I didnt like these, very hard to chew, even my butter knife couldnt cut into them, it just felt like rubber when tring to cut them, I was going to do a jelly doughnut, but couldnt cut it open...

dang I wish I could find something I like for bread/dessert like things

Hey Deb,
I think you may want to try using a vanilla whey protein powder instead of egg white powder. There is a few more ingredients in it that give the donut holes a real bread consistancy.
You never know until you try it. I loved them but the splenda knocked me for a loop.
Am now switching to stevia.

I have never used egg protein so I think this is why they were so tough.
