Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and spray a donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix all dry donut ingredients in a bowl before adding the egg, apple sauce, and chilled coffee. Mix until smooth like cake batter.
Spoon donut mixture into donut pan, spreading evenly and wiping excess away from the edges.
Bake for 6-8 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Be careful to not overcook. These donuts have a tendency to dry out quickly.
While the donuts are in the oven, mix together icing ingredients and set aside.
After removing the donuts from the oven and cooling briefly (2-3 minutes), remove them and either dip them in the icing mixture face down or set them on a plate and spoon icing on top.
Finish by drizzling as much caramel syrup as you'd like and adding a few chocolate sprinkles if that's your thing. Enjoy!
If you'd like a fluffier donut, add another egg and omit the apple sauce.
And since these donuts are very low calories already, you could also reduce the protein powder to 1.5 scoops (45g) and add 1 Tbsp (7g) coconut flour to further improve tenderness.
