BACON DONUTS?!!?! I know right. This is a low carber’s dream.

Stats – 320 calories, 26 grams of fat, 2.4 carbs, 0.3 fiber, 21.3 protein.

This is not an every single day recipe. Perfect for a special breakfast or if you are just craving a damn donut! No guilt.

So what you need for 2 servings-

  • 4 tbsp of butter
  • 2 or 3 tbsp of coconut oil or olive oil
  • 3-4 slices of bacon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3rd cup of vanilla or plain whey protein
  • 1 oz sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 small mini bell peppers

 

  1. Precook bacon in a non stick pan. This is very important. You do not want to use a non stick pan. My first batch stuck right to the bottom in a regular pan!
  2. Melt butter on stovetop or in microwave.
  3.  After bacon is drained and cooled, chop into small pieces.
  4. Chop peppers into mini pieces.
  5. Add chopped bacon, peppers, melted butter, 1 egg, 1/3rd cup of vanilla protein powder (or plain), and sharp cheddar cheese to bowl.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Heat the coconut or olive oil in your pan on medium high heat.
  8. Spoon mixture gently into oil. It should sizzle. If it’s too hot it will pop, be careful and adjust your temperature.
  9. Spoon oil over top of donut while it’s cooking.
  10. Once the bottom starts turning golden brown, GENTLY flip it over with a metal spatula.
  11. Cook for another few minutes until other side is golden brown.
  12. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel.
  13. Repeat!

That’s it. You can make 6 mini donuts, or 4 large fritter/donuts. To make it sweet you could add a bit of sugar free syrup and a little butter. OR keep it savory and add some sour cream and salsa.

I was really impressed with these little donuts. They have that great fritter taste, bacon bits, sweet, and savory all at once. Try this for sure!!
