Chunky Monkey Donuts (Vegan and Gluten free)

I’m writing up this recipe really quickly as I made these amazing chunky monkey donuts yesterday. These banana, cacao, buckwheat, peanut butter donuts are pure gorgeousness and when I posted a pic on Instagram I had lots of requests for the recipe… So here it is!

It’s a super chocolatey version of my banana donuts with a raspberry glaze and they couldn’t be easier to make.

The thing that makes them extra special (and gooey) is the semi dried banana chips which are mixed into the batter and I also popped a few at the bottom of the donut molds so you can see them when they’re cooked. I love the colour contrast.

These yummy donuts are vegan, gluten and refined sugar free. Happy days!

Just like last time I had some mix left over so I popped the excess into baking cases and made some muffins which I then topped with some crunchy peanut butter and banana chips. Amazing.

    Hey Nikki!
    Just wondering what you’d suggest using if I don’t have donut moulds? 🙂

      Hi Emily
      To make a perfect donut shape moulds are best but this mix makes delicious muffins too.
      Best wishes
