Protein Donuts

June 23, 2017

     Finally, a healthy version of a donut has arrived. This delicious little snack was created by a team of UT Austin alumni seeking to found their own business in making healthy fuel for athletes. The donut is plain and covered in a thin chocolate frosting. While the packaging is still a work in progress, the donut itself is pretty tasty. It is a little on the messy side and a

little too soft to hold up well in a backpack or purse. But the taste and nutrition make up for it. With a balanced macronutrient ratio and only 2 grams of sugar, this donut is perfect for breakfast or a post-workout treat.


     They also boast 13% of your daily fiber needs and 0 grams of trans fats. All of the ingredients are pronounceable (there are only 11 of them) and include components like Stevia, whey, and dark chocolate.While the product hasn’t hit the mainstream markets yet, you can follow Elite Sweets on Facebook and buy the donuts at
