Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Protein Donuts

Gluten-free peanut butter protein donuts are here! This recipe comes from My Own Meal Plan and originally called for whole wheat flour. I gave these a gluten-free and dairy-free spin by adding in different flour, protein powder and chocolate chips. My version of these are about 190 calories and 7g of protein per donut. #healthyish
