Raspberry Donuts with Chocolate Frosting

I loaded my donuts up with fresh raspberries and topped them with a simple chocolate frosting. They are outta this world good. My kids gobbled them right down and I love the fact that they are full of good stuff that will keep them feeling full as well as giving them a nutritional boost.

For the donuts:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup Vi-Shape Shake Mix or protein powder
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk or regular milk with a 1/2 teaspoon of white vinegar added
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries

For the frosting:


  • To make the donuts, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a donut pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, shake mix, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the buttermilk, egg, vanilla and oil.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir with a wooden spoon until fully incorporated.
  • Add the raspberries and stir. Don't worry too much about the berries breaking up as it just spreads them throughout the batter.
  • Fill the donut pan and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  • To make the frosting, add the chocolate chips and milk to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on low for 30 seconds, stirring every 10 seconds, until melted.
  • Spoon on top of the cooled donuts and spread evenly.
  • Let set for 10 minutes to thicken up.
