About

When it comes to donuts, the biggest decision you have to make is whether or not you want to feel guilty after eating all those calories and fat? But with Gourmet Protein Donuts, you never have to feel guilty indulging in a tasty treat again because Gourmet Protein Donuts are better than your typical donut. 

Our donuts are a healthier alternative to your favorite sweet, doughy treat that has 113 calories, 3g of fat, 3g of sugar, 3g of carbs, and 20g of protein per donut!

Hey, you can even skip your protein shake for the day with that much protein. You’re welcome!

And we just made it better! More on that later, for now here's more about us...


Our donuts are only 1/3 of the calories, sugar, and fat but 5x more protein!
Our donuts are only 1/3 of the calories, sugar, and fat but 5x more protein!

Our journey started with our partnered supplement company, Infinium Works. The owner of Infinium Works originally set out to create a food product to add to their line of supplements, but he didn't want to add a protein bar like other companies have in the past.

Instead, he wanted to create something different. While attending numerous body building shows as a sponsor with the Infinum Works brand, he noticed after the competitors left the stage they would pig out on junk food!

These competitors would spend months dieting for the competition and immediately indulge in all the sweet, fattening, and tasty treats they couldn't have while prepping for their body building show. There was one treat that was always a staple after every show that the competitors would pig out on... donuts!

After coming to this realization, Gourmet Protein Donuts was created in order to produce healthier food for those looking to look and feel great without sacrificing their sweet tooth!

The response was a bit overwhelming... We brought a few thousand donuts and keto holes and sold out in a matter of hours on the first day!

Introducing...

The Juice Stick
The Juice Stick

We're improving the way you snack! With this new upgrade addition to our product, we can place a different flavored topping into a separate container we're dubbing "The Juice Stick".  

Currently, we're limited to our frosting being 1 flavor due to its shelf life and its ability to hold up while shipping.Now with the Juice Stick, we'll be able to create different flavored frostings for you to experiment with.

Essentially, the Juice Stick is a flavor stick that will allow you to add frosting on your donuts however you see fit.  

New Box Design

New and Improved Box

Not only will our new packaging look cool, but there's an added bonus. Our new box design will be a bit bigger allowing us to accommodate the Juice Stick. 

If you think this box is cool, get a load of this. We will be placing a QR code on the box giving you access to healthy protein packed inspired recipes!

Now with the use of any smart phone, you'll be able to scan the code on our new box and be taken to our interactive recipe guide. Updated weekly!

 We are a small team of fitness enthusiast that just want to make snacking a bit healthier one bite at a time. Balance is the key to life and we truly believe that you shouldn't have to sacrifice your waistline or health to satisfy your sweet tooth. That's why it is our mission to bring high protein and healthy snacks to the masses. 

 With your pledge, we'll be able to improve on our current recipe allowing us to bake more fun and tasty flavors. Your pledge will also help with the creation of the Juice Stick and our new box design with interactive recipe guide. 




  •  Base Funding-  This is the amount we need  to create new flavors, new box, and flavor stick. To be honest, protein isn't cheap and our profit margin is very, very small. But we truly are passionate about what we're doing and how happy and healthier people are feeling from our products.
  •  25k-  Who wants the same thing over and over? Not us and certainly not you. With this amount, we can expand on our line of products!! This budget will open a whole new line of creative products with some pretty tasty treats like Power Muffins... soft, moist and fresh baked, but still guilt-free and packed with protein!
  •  32k-  Unlock a new flavor donut... a good ol' Old Fashion!  
  •  45k- We are in desperate need of some help!!! With this amount we can employ another team member. This will not only give someone much needed employment but it will also help to speed up production time so we can get your orders out to you faster!
  •  65k-  Currently we're baking out of a shared commercial kitchen and it's been the biggest hurdle for us.  With this extra budget, we will finally have our own kitchen! Which also means faster production time and more shipping dates than we currently offer now.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the project from the start and to all our backers.

Risks and challenges

We are wanting to expand and get our donuts to more people. We will be ready to begin production as soon as we meet our Kickstarter funding goal.

Given that this is a physical food product, unforeseen challenges may arise. Gourmet Protein Donuts has taken significant steps to ensure this Kickstarter is as de-risked as possible.

We promise to be transparent and communicate frequently to update our backers in the process.
