COOKBOOK

LC Donuts suggested by Desiree

1 Cup Protein Powder **
1/2 - 3/4 Cup water
1 egg
2 tbsp. sour cream
1 tbsp. cocoa OR cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Cooking oil

Heat oil in a fryer.  Mix the protein powder, water, egg, 1.5 tbsp. Splenda, sour cream or cream yoghurt, and half a cup of water.  If you are making chocolate donuts, add 2 tsp. cocoa powder.  If not chocolate, mix in the nutmeg and 2 tsp. cinnamon.  You want it the consistency of somewhat sticky cookie-dough, add more water if necessary.  Put it aside.  Mix together the other 1.5 tbsp. Splenda with 1 tsp. cocoa powder (for chocolate donuts) or cinnamon (for plain) on a large plate.

Shape 12 balls, about the size of a golf-ball.  Flatten and poke a hole in the center of each and gently drop it into the hot oil.  Cook until golden brown on both sides, remove from oil and roll in the Splenda/cocoa/cinnamon mixture.  It may take a little experimenting till you get them the right "flatness" to cook all the way through.

** About protein powder: I have made this with several kinds, and the best results thus far were with NRG brand, vanilla flavour (red label).  Also, if you don't have Splenda, about 3 packets of AS in the batter and 3 in the dusting should do it.
