Baked Donuts: Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Chip


So y’all. I feel like I should warn you that I just got a mini doughnut baker, and I. Love. it. So you may never hear the end of it here on the blog.

That thing is so much fun! AND there are SO many donuts just waiting to be made!

And now that I think about it, it may end up not being good for my health to be able to make a batch of donuts in five minutes flat.

Making donuts without a deep fryer may sound a little bit like cheating at first, but aside from the fact that baked doughnuts are so much easier on you in the calorie department, it also makes it possible to make gourmet flavors, and these being gluten-free, it means no worries about your doughnuts getting heavy in an effort to make your dough thick enough to fry.

Total win from every direction in my opinion!

Now, I think we all agree that banana flavored desserts are pretty much the best. Add chocolate chips, and it simply can’t be beat!

Especially when we’re talking about doughnuts. AmIright?

These banana chocolate chip doughnuts are light and fluffy, with just enough banana flavor, and so tasty that your friends won’t even know they’re gluten-free. Pinky swear!
