What You'll Need


DONUTS

½ cup mashed bananas (1-2 ripe bananas)

2 ¾ cups rolled oats

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup seltzer water

2 tsp of baking powder

¼ tsp sea salt

10 medjool dates, pitted and soaked for 30 minutes

TOPPINGS

⅓ cup natural peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice, optional)

1 ripe banana, thinly sliced

Chia Jam

CHIA JAM

½ cup mixed berries, fresh or frozen (and thawed)

¼ cup chia seeds

2 Tbsp maple syrup


How to Make It


CHIA JAM

1 Add berries and maple syrup to a blender and process until a smooth puree forms. Add 1-2 Tbsp of water if necessary to help berries blend smoothly.

2 Pour berry mixture into a bowl, add chia seeds, and mix until well combined.

3 Allow to set for 1-2 hours until jam-like texture forms.

DONUTS

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2 Add oats to a blender or food processor and grind into a fine powder to create oat flour.

3 Add oat flour and the rest of the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.

4 Add soaked dates to a blender and blend until they form a smooth paste.

5 Add date paste to dry ingredients, along with remaining wet ingredients, and continue to whisk until smooth.

6 Use a ¼ cup measurer to portion heaping scoops of batter into each cavity of a silicone donut pan. Shake the pan to level the batter.

7 Bake for 25-30 minutes.

8 Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing donuts from pan.

9 While donuts are cooling, add peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 20 minutes or until liquefied.

10 Place donuts on a plate and spread a layer of chia jam on the surface of each donut. Use a spoon to drizzle peanut butter in stripes on top of the chia jam.

11 Decorate the donuts with banana slices and serve.
