If you make them as mini muffins just decrease the baking time to 6-8mins.  As cupcakes, bake 19-22 mins or until a toohpick comes out clean.

Next, in a small bowl, add the blueberries and a small amount of the dry ingredients just enough to coat the blueberries.  This helps them from sinking to the bottom.

Pour your dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk until well combined.   Then gently fold in the blueberries and spoon into the doughnut pan to the top.

Bake for 18-20 min or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Remove from oven and allow to cool 3-5 mins then turn doughnuts out onto cooling rack.  Once fully cool, you may glaze them.

For Glaze:

In a small microwavable bowl, microwave the coconut oil until just melted.  Stir in 3 Tablespoons of protein adding 1 additional Tablespoon if needed to have a thin yogurt type consistency.  Add the fresh zest of 1 lemon if you like to add more lemon flavor to the icing.  Next, Turn doughnut over and dip into glaze.  Return to cooling rack then place glazed doughnuts in fridge for 10-15 mins until set.  Store in airtight container in the fridge or countertop.  These freeze great too!
