I had been trying to get myself and my kids back on a Back to School routine for weeks but it wasn’t successful at all – mostly because I’m a push-over but also because it’s hard to create a routine without the actual activities in place. But, the kids went back to school yesterday and I already know that this school year is going to be intense!
I am taking on the role of PTA president and Blessings in a Backpack coordinator at our elementary school. James is playing football and needs to be at school before the sun comes up. My husband is finishing his last term of college before graduation and we have church commitments. I have a feeling that finding a routine that works for myself and my family is going to be rocky (to say the least!). Having portable, easy to consume snacks & beverages to get through the first few weeks of figuring out that routine is going to be essential. Protein-Packed Mini Donuts and Gold Peak® Vanilla Chai Tea Lattes will be PERFECT for that, though!
How to Make Protein-Packed Mini Donuts –
- 1/2 cup protein powder (your choice!)
- 1 cup pancake mix
- 1 TBSP sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- dash nutmeg
- 1 egg
- 2 TBSP unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup milk
- Mix-ins: chopped walnuts, chocolate chips, sprinkles, etc., optional
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Toss all ingredients in a bowl and mix until everything is incorporated.
- Fill a zippered bag with the mixture.
- Snip off a corner of the bag and fill the donut spaces about halfway. (Note: if you want mix-ins, I’d recommend adding them to the cavities before filling with batter.)
- Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve with a Gold Peak Vanilla Chai Latte and enjoy!
Made with real tea and real sugar, Gold Peak Vanilla Chai Tea Latte is convenient and ready to drink which takes the hassle out of stopping for tea on busy mornings – especially when you are trying to find that perfect back to school routine. Plus, it pairs nicely with Protein-Packed Mini Donuts for an easy, on-the-go (or at home) breakfast!
Gold Peak Vanilla Chai Tea Latte is just one of the new and exciting flavors and can be found at your local Walmart. Also look for Gold Peak Chai Tea Latte, Gold Peak Salted Caramel Coffee Drink or Gold Peak Almond Toffee Coffee Drink.
So, protein-packed mini donuts for breakfast this week?!
