A lovely doughnut recipe that won’t destroy your diet. Hot and sizzling from the fryer and dusted with sugar or other delicious toppings, nothing beats a homemade doughnut.
Ours do have a little healthy twist however!
These are super simple to make too!
You will need a doughnut maker, or a deep pan for frying
- 220g Banana (roughly 2 bananas)
- 150g Greek Yoghurt
- 1 teaspoon Coconut Sugar
- ½ teaspoon (Optional) Lucuma powder (you can use coconut sugar or sweetener instead or leave out completely)
- 25g Coconut Oil
- 3 Eggs
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 200g Spelt Flour
- 80g dark chocolate chips
- 1teaspoon Baking Powder
- ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
Tip- want higher protein? Use 150g spelt flour and 50g protein powder (unflavoured)
- Mash the 2 bananas and add the Lucuma powder and coconut sugar to the mix.
- Use a hand blender to ensure the mix is fully combined.
- In another bowl crack 3 eggs, add the vanilla extract and melted coconut oil
- Add the egg mix to the bananas and mix
- In a separate bowl add the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
- Fold in the flour mix to the wet mix. (Avoiding stirring too much)
- Fold in the dark chocolate chips
- Prepare your doughnut maker
- Using a teaspoon add the mix to your doughnut maker and allow to cook. Most doughnut machines have a set timer for about 3-4 mins
No doughnut maker? Heat 4-5cm/1½-2in of oil in a deep heavy-bottomed pan, or a deep-fat fryer, to 170C. Deep-fry the doughnuts, in small batches, for about 2/3 minutes or until golden-brown all over.
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a tray lined with several layers of kitchen paper
Remove, cool and decorate with a variety of ingredients, we used melted dark chocolate and a variety of tasty toppings to finish, we tried raw cacao, coconut sugar, cacao nibs, crumbled goji berries, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and linseeds, coconut, ground almonds, just have fun experimenting!
