Choc Banana Donuts

Donut 1

I originally found this recipe here, at Janie’s Kitchen. I have tweaked it and altered it to use my pantry staples and to suit the Thermomix.

There is this lady I have become friends with recently who knows me so well! She has brought (and shared) bubbles, recipes, delicious dips and DONUT PANS!! Thank you Lauren ❤  I have immense gratitude for these amazing and like minded women who have come into my life over the past few years – ‘My Tribe’. I love you all so much – I made you some donuts. 🙂

I may or may not have eaten 4 for lunch.

I will never tell.

    • Thank you! They are pretty good! Big hit with the family! Honestly, I have only worked with GF flour once before and I tried to make bread and it was a dismal failure! 😉 The only thing I can suggest is to give it a try? If you are used to using it you would be more familiar with how it ‘behaves’ than I am. My next intended project is to try a coconut flour donut recipe which will be gluten free, so stay tuned for that one. If you try the GF flour, can you let me know how it goes? x

  1. I just bought a mini donut maker today. I can’t wait to try these! It’ll make a nice change for the kids lunchboxes instead of banana muffins.

  2. Can’t wait to try these and looking forward to the coconut flour version as well.
    How many donut pans will this recipe fill? I recently bought 2 pans and can’t wait to use them!!

  3. What could I use instead of a donut pan?I want to make them soon!! They look amazing and I have some lovely organic spelt flour waiting to be used up!

  4. Thanks so much, I had never heard of a donut pan before, but instantly had to buy one! Donuts were beautiful and my two little girls were very excited. I got about 2 1/2 pans out of the mix.
