Delicious Donuts

Updated: Nov 30, 2022

Didn't think a healthy donut existed did you?! Turns out they do exist and they are simple to make! I've been looking at 2 sad, continuing to ripen bananas for the last couple days and TODAY had to be the day they were used! But what to make?? It seems I never have ripe bananas when I need them but lay them at my feet for use and I'm at a loss! Then I remembered these donuts that need exactly 2 very ripe bananas-yay!

Gluten free, vegan option, no refined sugar and nutrient dense... you can have your donut and eat it too! P.S.The chocolate frosting is naturally sweetened with no icky ingredients!

Makes 6


2/3 cup very ripe mashed bananas (about 2 bananas)

2 Tbs melted unrefined coconut oil

2 eggs (flax eggs work too)

2 Tbs pure maple syrup

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


1 1/4 cup blanched almond flour

2 Tbs coconut flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Pinch salt

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly oil donut pan with healthy oil (avocado, evoo or coconut oil).

Whisk wet ingredients in medium bowl until well combined.

In separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients until incorporated and add to wet ingredients stirring to combine.

Pipe or spread batter into donut molds and bake 15-16 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes in mold, then flip mold over onto cooling rack to release donuts. Let cool completely.


1 cup pitted medjool dates

1/4 cup hot water

2/3 cup all natural creamy almond butter

2 Tbs melted unrefined coconut oil

1/2 cup cocoa powder (or carob if avoiding chocolate)

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Pinch pink salt

Makes ~1 1/2 cups

Blend dates and hot water in food processor (if your dates are hard and dry pre-soak for 5 minutes in hot water). Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth frosting forms, adding a little more water if needed. Spread onto donuts or cakes. Watch the reel here
