Protein Donut



Recommended Posts

So I decided to try Jim Buddy's Protein Donut, from the Bariatric Pal Store. I got the cake batter flavor. I did not like it at all. I am so mad that I wasted $3 on it! It had a weird texture, and left an awful aftertaste in my mouth. I knew it wasn't going to be like a regular donut, but didn't expect it to be so bad.

Thanks for reviewing it! All of those healthy-ish treats are really tempting, but sooo expensive. I'd be mad, too, if I spent $3 on something like that and it didn't even taste good. Have you tried making your own? I've seen lots of recipes on Pinterest for healthy Protein donuts, brownies, Cookies, mug cakes, etc. Haven't gotten around to trying any of them yet, but they look promising.

they probably replace some of the flour (maybe half) with Protein Powder - and yep, it does affect the texture (I make Protein muffins sometime and do the same thing. Mine are still good, but the texture isn't quite the same...)

One either loves the more dense/chewy texture of the Protein baked goods or one hates it I guess.

Neither of this stuff has anything to do with "healthy food". It's processed stuff just like ordinary cakes/cookies etc.

That's why I said "healthy-ish" 😉. It's obviously not the healthiest food you could be eating, but at least the macros are better than the real thing. Sometimes it's nice to have a treat that doesn't derail your plan (or it would be if it tasted good).

I am not really one for experimenting with food too much. If I can buy it, I usually will to try it.

Its not just the texture of it, even though it was weird. It was the after taste worst of all.

My nutritionist told me the same thing. She said even though it has more Protein in it, it is still processed, and not good for me. I just wanted to try it for myself. I am kind of glad I didn't like it, so I will never buy it again.

I am in agreement. These donuts do not taste good and have a bad after taste. I do enjoy smart cakes and smart muffins.

I thought so. But they're not even "healthy-ish" IMO.

I can't wrap my brain around the notion that a food is automatically seen as "healthier" just because it contains a bit more Protein or less sugar (but more artificial sweetener) than the original stuff. That's what companies selling this stuff at horrendous prices want you to believe.
