When I think of this recipe it comes as a reminder of how restrictive we can be when starting to eat “healthier” and following more of a fitness path.
Well, today I tell you you can have your sweets, carbs and eat them too.
With this Cannoli Donut you get all those sweet cravings you so longed for satisfied.
You may be thinking I’m eating a donut and reaching my goals? Yes, yes you can!
With this donut packing up 36g of protein and 7g of fiber, you’re bound to hit that spot you’ve been looking to fill up.
I personally found making recipes like these not only kept me satiated, but also relieved me of lots of mental and physical pressure of not being able to enjoy what I ate before.
I hope you don’t just make this recipe, but that it inspires you to get creative and adjust the foods you love into a more suitable and enjoyable way of eating and lifestyle.”

  10. Place the top of the roll onto the bottom of the roll and garnish the top of the roll with the remaining frosting and chocolate chips.


  • The Bulkie Roll can be replaced with a regular bun, a plain doughnut without the hole, as long as it’s suitable with your health preferences, you can use anything that works for you.
  • The Yogurt can be replaced with ricotta or cottage cheese as long as it’s blended to be as smooth as the yogurt (with a similar texture).
  • The oil spray can be replaced with lite or regular butter, although macros will be slightly
