Cinnamon Crumb Donuts

Cinnamon Crumb Donuts

These Cinnamon Crumb Donuts give big crumb cake vibes — from the fluffy cake-like donut to the tender, sweet crumb topping.

Each gorgeous donut contains 14 grams of protein, so they’re perfect as a part of a balanced, healthy breakfast. Or afternoon snack. Or post-dinner dessert.

Three scoops of Snickerdoodle Shakeology provide the extra delicious cinnamon-sugar cookie flavor and superfood nutrition.

Pro tips:

  • You can make your own oat flour by adding dry rolled oats to a blender; pulse until a fine flour texture is reached.
  • These can also be made as muffins if you don’t have a donut pan. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes.
