These irresistible donuts will tempt kids and adults alike and will be gobbled up as soon as they come out from the oven. If you manage to save any, try one (or both) of the suggested glazes and sprinkle with some roasted cocoa nibs. To enjoy the donuts right away, simply sprinkle them with sweetener while still warm. You may vary the flavors by adding some cinnamon or nutmeg to the dough.

3 scoops K Nutri Collagen Peptides
1/4 cup/1 oz/28g coconut flour
3 tablespoons monk fruit or another sweetener of choice

- Preheat the oven to 375F/190C/Gas 6 and lightly grease a 6-cavity nonstick donut pan.
- In a mixing bowl, stir together almond flour, K Nutri Collagen Peptides, coconut flour, monk fruit sweetener, baking powder, flaxseeds, if using, salt, and baking soda. Add eggs, butter, and vanilla extract and whisk until thoroughly mixed.
