Chocolate Banana Doughnuts

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I don’t think there’s anything better than waking up on a Saturday morning, and having a doughnut! When I was a teenager my dad would always wake up early on Saturdays, and buy a dozen doughnuts from the BEST local doughnut shop- I guess you could say I’m a little nostalgic for it.

While I’m still a sucker for a good doughnut, I realize it’s probably not the best thing to eat every week. That’s why I created this recipe for gluten free, refined sugar free doughnuts that you can enjoy guilt free! This recipe is sooo simple, and take only minutes to whip up! They’re perfect for the morning, or even a bedtime treat 🙂
