Keto Baking with Protein Powder
I enjoy baking using protein powder. It not only adds extra protein to your food, but it also serves as a flavorless, non-gritty flour substitute. A dry baked product can be produced using protein powder.
Perfect Keto is the brand of protein powder I prefer to use when baking and mixing. Their grass-fed, keto-friendly, and MCT oil-light whey protein powders all come from animals. Unflavored or vanilla protein powder is the best flavors to use in a recipe.
Keto Prep Advice
These simple keto doughnut holes can be prepared in advance because they keep their freshness at room temperature when left out on the counter.
Alternatives to Sour Cream
This dish uses sour cream to add moisture. A dry, crumbly baked item can be produced with protein powder. To counteract the protein powder, sour cream adds fat and moisture. Additionally, it has a creamy flavor. Keto dieters can enjoy sour cream. Sour cream is keto-friendly because it has 0.3 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon. Additionally, it has more fat and protein. You can use heavy cream or full-fat greek yogurt in place of the sour cream in this doughnut recipe if you like.
