BANANA BREAD CHOCOLATE MACADAMIA NUT DONUTS

INGREDIENTS

1 box Simple Mills banana bread mix
2 eggs
1 cup water
2 tsp oil (I use either avocado oil or melted coconut oil)
1 bar of chocolate (I used Eating Evolved for this one, but Hu Kitchen or Enjoy Life Foods would work well also)
1/4 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
Sea salt to sprinkle on top

I hope everyone is starting their weekend right. My typical Saturday plan is to take the boys out for donuts. There is a great place that opened up in our neighborhood, so we usually just venture over there. But today I felt lazy and didn’t feel like piling the kids int0 the car and dealing with toddler meltdowns. So I decided to make my own, using Simple Mills Banana Bread Mix.

And guess what, you guys? You can make chocolate donuts using their Chocolate Cake & Muffin Mix, pumpkin donuts using their Pumpkin Muffin & Bread Mix, and vanilla donuts using their Vanilla Cupcake & Cake Mix. Pretty genius, right???

Here is how I made these BANANA BREAD CHOCOLATE MACADAMIA NUT DONUTS! You can thank me later!

 

makes 6 donuts

INSTRUCTIONS

Following the instructions on the banana bread mix package, in a medium bowl, combine the banana bread package contents, oil, water, and eggs.
Mix together well, and pour the batter evenly into a silicone donut pan (you should be able to fill 6 fully)
Bake for 20 minutes. Note, this is less than what it says on the box, so follow my instructions.
Remove from oven and let cool completely.
Once cooled, drizzle each one with melted chocolate, chopped macadamia nuts, and sprinkle with sea salt.

Enjoy!
