New Healthful Doughnuts Feature Protein, Much Less Sugar, Much More Fiber

March 20, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A Texas-based start-up thinks it has an answer for health-conscious doughnut lovers. Elite Sweets has debuted a more healthful, protein-based alternative to the calorie-packed breakfast pastry. The company says its "protein doughnuts" are the perfect post-workout snack for athletes. Each contains16 grams of protein, a significant contribution to the 56 grams recommended daily for the average sedentary man. Conventional doughnuts contain about 300 calories, 20 to 30 grams of sugar, and no protein. The Elite Sweets cinnamon sugar version, sweetened with stevia, contains about 200 calories, two grams of sugar, and 15 grams of fat, mainly from the almond flour used, and 12 grams of dietary fiber. The protein doughnuts also come in peanut butter, birthday cake, and chocolate chip flavors..[Image Credit: © Elite Sweets ]
