Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Doughnuts for breakfast anyone?!
Okay, so maybe these are more of a dessert than a breakfast. They would make a great holiday or birthday breakfast though.
These were made totally by my thirteen year old. Both my girls are turning into quite the cooks, especially when it comes to gluten free and allergy friendly foods.
My daughter loves bananas and when I recently had a few bananas that needed used up, she offered to bake something with them. Doughnuts sounded good, so we found a recipe that we decided to adapt to see how it would work.
It worked great and these were delicious.
Now, when it comes to adapting recipes to gluten free my girls are still learning, so I suggested a few things and told her what gluten free flours I would use and she went to work.
She did a great job on these. They will now be added to the list of favorite ways to use up bananas.
Since she is thirteen and loves both bananas and chocolate she decided these needed a chocolate glaze. They were good that way, but it made them much more dessert like.
So, for an everyday type doughnut I will probably leave the glaze off or just dip them in a little melted butter and then cinnamon and sugar. No matter what way you make them though, I think your family will love them.
