Those who know me well know that a delicious Zehrs donut is my treat of choice. So of course I made it my duty to create a donut that is actually clean and healthy (and I actually mean healthy not just ‘healthier’)! This Banana Bread Donut with Coconut Icing has only 126 calories, 11g of carbs, 3g of fat, only 1 tsp of sugar and 12 whopping grams of protein…meaning it’s justifiable daily. Now that’s just music to a donut lover’s ears!
Banana Bread Donuts with Coconut Icing (makes 4 donuts):
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/3 cup of egg whites
1 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 tsp stevia
3/4 of a medium banana
1 scoop of vanilla, banana or cinnamon whey protein (or a vegan alternative works here too)
2 tbsp Cracked Coconut Bourbon Vanilla Coconut Spread
1 tsp sprinkles
1) Preheat the over to 350 degrees and use a little coconut oil to grease a donut tin.
2) Put the banana, cinnamon, oats, baking powder, egg whites, coconut flour and almond milk in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Pour mixture evenly between 4 donuts in the tin and bake for 10 mins.
3) Once cooked, let them cool completely before icing. Spread 1/2 a tbsp of coconut spread on each donut and then top with sprinkles (you could also use cocoa nibs here for a lower sugar, chocolately option). Enjoy, guilt free, any day of the week!
