It’s been a while since I posted a sweet recipe. If you don’t know already, I have a sweet tooth. So in order to get my sweet fix, I need to create healthier alternatives. This is another one of those.
I may have gone a little over board with the chips. It’s all good though. These are healthy enough to eat for a breakfast and they should keep you satiated for quite sometime. This recipe was supposed to be called Apple Donuts, but I realized I was short on applesauce so I had to improvise by adding banana. I make a big batch of these so I have some to freeze, some to snack on and some for my father-in-law who loves to taste test these recipes.
Banana Chocolate Chip Donuts!
2 cups white whole wheat flour (for a gluten free version, sub GF all purpose or GF oat flour)
1/3 cup coconut sugar (maple syrup will work too, but you may need to slightly decrease the liquid somewhere else in the recipe)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup applesauce unsweetened
1 banana smashed
2 T milk (I used almond milk)
1 tsp ground vanilla bean or extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips or raisins (I used carob chips)
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl. Mix wet into another. Add dry to wet. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon batter onto greased donut pans and bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
