Vegan Banana Bread Donuts

Vegan Banana Bread Donuts

I may or may not have made this recipe into donuts because I was craving muffins, but forgot I don’t own a muffin pan until I got home with all my ingredients… All my fellow dog people understand that once you’re in after a trip out, there’s no leaving again for a while. So, my banana muffins became vegan banana bread donuts, and I am not mad about it at all.

Baked donuts are great because they are thinner in shape than a traditional muffin or loaf pan, so they bake faster and the texture stays a bit more fluffy. It is generally a more low maintenance way to bake things, which is great for me because to be honest, baking has never really been my thing. I certainly don’t feel as attached to it as I do cooking. However, since I’ve been pretty much vegan and health conscious overall, its become increasingly hard to satisfy my sweet tooth and still feel good after.


Pro tip: To easily and quickly fill donut molds, put the batter into a plastic bag and cut the tip off, then pipe it into the molds.
