Recipe: Banana-Chocolate Chip Donuts!

donuts

I finally made donuts! I was searching for the right recipe that wasnt complicated and included bananas (i have a zillion in the freezer begging to be used for baking) and this one sure delivered!

I used this recipe from Janie’s Kitchen. I cut the recipe in half and it made 8 donuts.

I substituted rice flour for the spelt flour, used 9% greek yogurt instead of 0% and used semi sweet chocolate chips. They took about 12 minutes to bake and I turned them once during cooking.

They got so nice and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. They are a dense donut (similar to the texture of an old fashioned type of donut) I had one hot from the oven and it was amazing! Burned my mouth on a chocolate chip- but it was sooooo worth it.

I am now HOOKED on donut making because well, its cool! I love that donut pan.

Can’t wait to try another flavour! (I’d love to do a sour cream glazed…mmm)

Recipe: The easiest [gluten free] pancakes on earth.

I’ll keep this short and sweet.

Mash 1 banana. Mix with 1 egg. Add cinnamon. Fry.

banana pancake

sorry the pic is foggy- the pancakes were hot & steamed up my camera!

Makes a sweet and moist little pancake (I make them small so they are easy to flip & cook fast) Actually about 8 of them (size as pictured above)

My mom said you can even do the same with canned pumpkin too (instead of bananas)

There you go! Have this for breakfast tomorrow and tell me what you think!
