Protein Donuts, aka Pronuts

As a brand, we’ve been all about Bars since we were created. While we love our Chia Bars and our Pumpkin Seed Bars, sharing our new Superfood Protein Powder with our warriors has opened a whole new world of healthy possibilities! Today we’re baking with our Protein Powder to fuel up in a new, tasty way!

Protein donuts, also known as pronuts, are simply a donut made with protein powder. Instead of using flour and sugar, we use protein powder as a base. Use Health Warrior’s Superfood Protein Powder and you’ll get plant-based protein, pre and probiotics, and none of the added sugar, stevia, dairy, or pea protein you don’t need!
