Healthy Bananas Foster Donuts

Wake up slow and enjoy one of six of these Healthy Bananas Foster Donuts. They’re paleo-friendly, MOIST and totally delicious. 

Bananas Foster Donuts 3GUESS WHAT?! It’s Friday! Like, we somehow made it, and for that, you all deserve a donut or six. 

Bananas Foster is a dessert I avoided for awhile for no reason other than the fact there’s no chocolate involved. ….which is honestly the dumbest reason ever. IT’S SO GOOD, especially atop donuts.

Another thing I avoided for awhile was purchasing a donut pan. I have no idea why since they’re approximately $12—best $12 ever spent? Eh, debatable, but definitely worth the cost. How else would I be able to enjoy donuts on a Saturday morning? 

Bananas Foster Donuts 5Bananas Foster Donuts 2I mean yeah, I could just buy some, but that’s NOT the point. The point is that making donuts is super easy and homemade weekend breakfasts are the best. ….am I making you wish it was the weekend already? No worries, we’re so close! 

These donuts are..

Soft
Fluffy
MOIST
Cake-like
Banana-filled
Sweet
Delicious for any meal of the day

Ohhh yeah…

Bananas Foster Donuts 6Speaking of delicious for any meal of the day, I may or may not have made a recipe involving Oreo’s yesterday and I may or may not have eaten this said Oreo treat for every meal of the day. …with other things of course, but Oreo’s for every meal are acceptable in my book and so are donuts. Plus, these are super healthy and don’t taste like cardboard. THANK GOODNESS.

Do yourself a favor and bookmark these for tomorrow or Sunday morning. Just do it. TGIF and happy weekend brunching!
