Healthy Options for All Your Cravings ~ Issue #1
I will give you three great options!
One Maple Donut Protein Bar, it’s so tasty and fulfills all my cravings for donut flavor.
My other favorite protein donut bar is the Quest Chocolate Sprinkled Doughnut bar.
You can also make protein donuts using a donut baking tin! I love this recipe from Tone It Up and you can sub Lakanto maple syrup for real maple syrup and Lily’s chocolate chips to reduce your sugar load.
