Grain free/vegan banana chocolate chip doughnuts


I started making cookies and after adding the banana they tasted too banana-ish so I turrned them into donuts. The kids and I loved these so I think they earned the seal of approval. They are really moist and delicious! I like using the mini chocolate chips so you don’t get a big bite of chocolate but small hints of chocolate as you eat it.

Grain free/ vegan banana chocolate chip doughnuts

1 cup cashew flour

2 tablespoon coconut flour

1/2 mashed banana

2 tablespoons raw honey

1/4 cup melted smart balance butter

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4-1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

* Mix ingredients together and I use a ziplock bag with the tip cut to pour it into a greased donut pan.

* Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes or until slightly firm and light to medium brown color.

Gluten free vegan vanilla doughnuts with chocolate glaze

donut (66)

I made these a few days ago and they got the family approval so I will post the recipe. I am doing a raw cleanse for a week or so(possibly the whole summer considering how good I am feeling!) So I will still be doing some cooked things because my kids are not going all raw and they eat regular ( low sugar/gluten free) food. But I will be doing a lot salads and smoothies because that is mostly all I am eating right now.

Vanilla donuts (vegan,GF)

1/2 peeled apple

1/2 banana

1/4 cup coconut milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup ground sunflower seeds

1/4 cup ground coconut shreds

1/4 cup brown rice flour

2 tablespoons tapioca flour

1 tablespoon melted cocoa butter

1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

15 drops of stevia or to taste

pinch of sea salt

chocolate glaze

1 cup dairy free semi sweet chocolate chips

1 tablespoon cocoa butter

* Puree the apple, banana and the coconut milk.

* Combine all ingredients and blend/process until smooth

* Use a ziplock bag with an edge cut so you can pour the dough in the greased doughnut pan smoothly.

* Cook at 350 for about 20 minutes or until doughnuts are “springy” when touched.

* Melt the chocolate chips and cocoa butter in a pan until smooth and creamy.

* Apply the chocolate glaze to cooled doughnuts and eat! Makes 6-8 small doughnuts.
