Salted Caramel Filled Donuts

homemade high-protein donuts

By: Anne-Sophie Hoffman
A donut covered with powdered sugar and packed full of plum or strawberry jam is a wonder of the world. But today we’re putting the fruits aside and giving our homemade donuts a super-creamy salted caramel filling. Homemade, high-protein, and soooo good!


  • Ingredients:
    125 ml oat milk
    Gently warm the plant milk (don't get it above 37°C).
  • Ingredients:
    1 package active dry yeast (42 grams), 50 g coconut sugar
    Mix together the warm oat milk, the yeast, and the coconut sugar in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes. The mixture should start to form a froth of small bubbles on top.
  • Ingredients:
    250 g spelt flour, 50 g Coconut oil, 1 pinch salt
    Now transfer the mixture to a stand mixer. Start the mixer on low speed, and add the flour, the coconut oil, and the salt. Let it mix well. Then increase the speed to medium. Mix for 8-10 minutes. Let the mixer run until a smooth dough is formed. Form it into a ball.
  • Grease a large bowl with a smear of vegetable oil. Put the ball of dough inside. Cover the bowl with a damp dishtowel, and set aside in a warm place for 60-90 minutes.
  • Roll out the yeast dough on a well-floured surface to 2-3cm thickness. Use a glass or a large cookie cutter to cut out circles about 10cm wide. Repeat until all the dough is used up.
  • Lay a piece of baking paper onto a baking sheet. Now spread the dough circles out on the baking paper and cover with a damp dishtowel again. Set aside for another 30-40 minutes to rise.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot or deep pan to a temperature of 165° to 175°C.
  • Fry the donuts for 30-45 seconds (or until golden-brown) on each side.
  • Carefully remove the donuts from the hot oil and place on paper towels to absorb the extra oil.
  • Repeat with all donuts until they are all fried.
  • Set the donuts aside to cool.
  • Ingredients:
    15 ml oat milk, 1 tbsp Whey Protein Caramel, 0.5 tbsp Flavor Kick
    Meanwhile, make the salted caramel frosting: Warm the oat milk. Mix with the Whey Protein and the Flavor Kick in a small bowl. There should not be any clumps forming.
  • Ingredients:
    Add the Salted Caramel Protein Cream and stir well.
  • Ingredients:
    300 g skyr yogurt
    Poke a hole into one side of each donut. Use the piping bag to fill the center of each donut with the frosting.
  • If you want, top the donuts with powdered sugar and/or chocolate glaze.
  • Enjoy!
