Here ya go Farley

Low Carb Doughnut Holes
Doughnut Holes (low carb)

1 large egg
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
Splenda
cinnamon -- for topping

Taste- and texture-wise, these fall somewhere in between true doughnuts and funnel cakes. They cook very fast, so make sure you have everything on hand!

Heat about 1 inch of oil in a heavy skillet until it's hot enough for frying. While the oil heats, beat the egg lightly with the melted butter, then add the Splenda, protein powder, and vanilla. Whisk together until all the lumps are pretty much broken up, then let it rest a minute or two and whisk a bit more (batter will still have a grainy look to it, but that's fine). Using a large tablespoon or serving spoon, drop the batter by large tablespoonfuls into the hot oil in batches of 4. Fry until bottoms are golden-brown, which will only take a few seconds, then flip. Drain on paper towels, then sprinkle with Splenda and cinnamon to taste and serve hot.

Makes about 8 doughnut holes, and servings 2-4. I ate 6 LOL! I fried these in coconut oil. I made a double batch for DH and I.


Yield:
"2 each"

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Per Serving: 162 Calories; 17g Fat (93.6% calories from fat); 2g Protein; 1g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 104mg Cholesterol; 175mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1/2 Lean Meat; 3 Fat.

Barbo,

What is the texture with these? I have made them twice and both times they turned out differently??? I think part of it was the scoop in question (amount of ppowder) but they are dry and chewy..is that how they should taste?

YUm

They were delicious. I used the scoop that is in Designer Protein Powder.
We thought they were fabulous.

I never made any except these. Sorry I didn't realize I yours had
CarbQuick. Oh well I think I would just experiment if I were you.

Hopefully someone will come along who makes them your way.
I got this recipe off LCF board and a lot of us made them and loved
them. They are rather addictive.

I found this one which uses Carbsense bake mix and I bet that Carbquik would work.

Here's a message in the Carbquik thread where someone does just that with good results:

[COLOR="Red"]LindaSUE!! Always good to see you!! I have my own [I]Lindasue Cookbook!![I] Thanks for the Thread!! I've spent sooo much time over there, I have about 15 new recipes to add to my book!!! I'm gonna try the donut recipe tonight. I wish I could find my other recipe, but this one sounds close. I made me a cookbook the last time I done ATKINS, but I loaned it to a friend and never got it back. This one isn't leaving the house!! I know...I should have never quit Atkins, but with 4 kids and their constant wants, ( mom make me brownies...cookies...etc! ) its hard to do. I have been at this soo long, I know right from wrong, its just making myself fully commit!! But at least when I fall, it doesn't take me long to jump back on!! Thanks AGAIN!! [/COLOR]

These are THE BEST! I have found the ones with Protein Powder burn very easily.

I agree Beeb. I did not have great luck with the PP version. I was the one who posted that Carbquik variation way back in 2004. I think they taste better than the PP recipe, though I'm sure the PP version is better for you. It could also be the brand of PP I have, which I'm not wild about. Anyway, if you have Carbquik, give these a try. They are very good, especially the chocolate variation!

I use protein powder. Jay Robb. I just pour all the batter in and fry it together and it turns into a huge funnel cake. Way better than a teeny doughnut hole. It's soooo good with powdered E.

This is the one thing I use Vegetable oil to fry for though. It just seems to work better. I'm scared to try and fry it in my expensive coconut oil.

for frying with coconut oil - I usually buy the Louanna coconut oil from walmart - MUCH cheaper than my EVCO i use for everything else.

This is off topic----but cap57 what is the picture in your profile of, cupcakes, fudge, brownies, etc. Looks so good! I read thru a lot of your posts, just hoping to find someone that asked you what they were, can't wait any longer, and where can I find the recipe?
Thanks

I find the PP ones, whether doughnut holes or a funnel cake, to be very greasy, and again, fry way too quickly.

Hi Steve and welcome to LCF! Here is a link to the frosting recipe, which also contains the cupcake recipe. They are a tweak of a chocolate mayo cake originally posted back in 2004 by GAllison. You do need to invest in some specialty ingredients, but the original recipe calls for fewer ingredients, so also check that link out. http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...sting-you.html

That's the part I like. Greasy. Except I do put mine on paper towels after frying and let the additional grease drain.

Perfect Carbquick Doughnut Holes

This is a modified Buisquick recipie. It is super yummy!

2 cups Carbquick
3 Tbl splenda
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1/4 cup milk (give or take I usually use a little more)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

SUGAR COATING:
1/2 cup splenda
1 tsp cinnamon

Pour 3 to 4 inches of oil (peanut oil is yummy for these) into a deep-skillet. Heat to 375 degrees. Mix Carbquick, splenda, vanilla, egg, milk, cinnamon and nutmeg until smooth. Smooth into ball on floured, cloth-covered board. Knead 10 times. Roll into small table tennis size balls(if youmake them to big they will be raw in the middle as the carbquick tends to burn quicker than Buisquick. Fry till medium golen brown. Delicious plain or rolled in splenda and cinamon!
