Pre-Workout Raw Coffee Donuts

Proudly supported by

We get it, pre-workouts can leave you with rashes, feeling anxious, and if timed poorly can even kick in on the way to the gym. So when we come across a pre workout recipe that is not only good for us, but in the form of a donut… how can we not share the goodness!

The caffeine from the coffee coconut infused protein powder is what gives these donuts their pre-workout kick, but you can easily substitute another flavour for a post workout snack or midday protein hit (maybe don’t include the espresso shot either!). To keep the treat as clean as possible, we recommend using a pea protein such as NuZest Clean Lean Protein, making sure you’re getting no added chemicals or sugars.

Give this easy man-proof recipe a try, and thank us later!



1 ½ cup almond meal

¾ cup soft pitted medjool dates

2 tablespoon raw extra virgin organic cold pressed coconut oil melted*

1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract

1 serve Nuzest Clean Lean Protein Coffee Coconut + MCTs

1 shot of espresso mixed with hot water

Pinch salt



½ cup raw extra virgin organic cold pressed coconut oil melted*

1 scoops protein

1 tablespoon maple syrup



    Blend ingredients and press into donut moulds

    Freeze for minimum two hours


    Whisk together till combined

    Let cool for approximately 10 minutes.

    While it is cooling pop your frozen donuts out of the mould and put onto a cake cooling rack ready for glazing

    When the glaze has thickened, drizzle it slowly over the donuts, one at a time.

    Before the glaze solidifies, sprinkle some finely chopped coconut chips on the top so they stick.

    Store in freezer for up to two weeks

    *to ensure this recipe can be considered raw, don’t heat your coconut oil above 40 degrees Celsius.
