Banana Donut

Doughtnuts.

Banana Doughtnuts. 

Doesn’t sound that good right?

just like another ‘wannabe healthy’ banana dessert. 

BUT let me tell you. These aren’t a ‘wannabe healthy’ dessert, these are a ‘I have too many brown bananas’ dessert. 

However, they are baked & have greek yogurt & bananas sooooo does it make it healthy?! Prob not but what I do know, is that they were phenomenal. period. 

Honestly, the fluffiest doughnuts of my life. Like you need to lay off the banana bread next time you have ripe bananas & make these for a change, I promise you won’t regret it.

Make sure to watch the video for these guys & let me know what you think. I really hope someone makes these because they are SOOOOO INCREDIBLY EASY to make & worth every calorie!   BANANA DOUGHNUTS

LOVE NOTES

  • There’s really not much to say about these, lol they’re just that easy!
  • If you want to cover them in cinnamon sugar without the chocolate ganache, paint some melted butter onto them, once they’re cooled and then dip them in. Otherwise, it won’t stick.
  • ENJOY!

  Really hope someone makes these because they’re SO EASY & DELICIOUS! They may not be ‘healthy’ BUT they are better than most things we want to indulge in so try this as an alternative, you won’t regret it! I’m excited to have some more super ripe bananas myself if you know what I mean 😉As always, have a blessed day my friends & go make someone these doughnuts, they’ll love you!

Love, B
