Salted Caramel Protein Donuts
One for the salted caramel lovers! Another low calorie donut recipe made using salted caramel extract.
If you have more carbs to play with try soaking dates in hot water for 30 minutes then blending them with honey to form a "caramel" to put in the centre of each donut - yum!
