Back to school after the holiday break is always rough, but winter classes mean the possibility of snow days. For me, snow days are always about baking (or making pancakes) or both and I wanted to share a healthier version of doughnuts. These are made like muffins, but roll them in cinnamon sugar and yum… doughnuts!
Makes 24 mini donuts holes
1 ½ cups almond flour
pinch of salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 TBS coconut oil
2 TBS honey
2 large eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 mashed banana
(I threw a handful of dark chocolate chips in my second batch because I had some to use!)
Mini muffin tin
Cinnamon Sugar (I used coconut sugar) for rolling
Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees. In a mixing bowl combine almond flour, salt baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice then add the coconut oil, honey, eggs, pumpkin and banana until smooth.
Grease the mini-muffin pan (I used a tiny bit of coconut oil) and spoon in batter.
Bake at 325° for 15-20 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
Let cool, scoop out, then roll in cinnamon sugar.
I’m obsessed with this recipe not only because it’s super delicious, but because it’s a single serving. Sometimes when I make cookies I end up eating more than I’d actually like. This is great because it’s quick and preeeetty healthy. #ModernMentor me in your photos if you try it out!
Recipe adapted from Delighted Momma
What you will need:
3 tbs of almond meal
2 tbs of coconut oil
1/2 cup of organic pumpkin puree
1 tsp of pumpkin spice
1 tbs of honey
1 tsp of vanilla extract
A dash of salt
1/2 tsp of baking powder
Handful of dark chocolate chips
Mix everything well in a separate bowl. Pour into a microwave safe mug or baking dish.
Put in the microwave for 4 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean. I also added a scoop of pumpkin ice cream ENJOY!!!
My best friend Christine visited me this weekend and we decided to make 3 ingredient cookies. I love Instagram because I get so much inspiration there. When @lolacooks posted this recipe, I knew I had to check it out. These cookies are SUPER easy, delicious, AND healthy. What more could you ask for?
1 1/2 Bananas
3/4 cup oats
Chocolate (I used organic dark)
In a bowl mash banana and add in the oats. Stir until it forms a batter.
Fold in chocolate. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
Warning: this dessert is amazing! It tastes like ice cream, but it’s banana. I can’t get enough and wanted to share with you. This is an easy recipe to make at the beginning of the week and grab after dinner (okay I’ve been eating them as a snack too). Let me know if you try them!
Cut bananas in 1/2 inch thick slices.
Spread almond butter onto slices and sandwich them together. Place on baking sheet and put in the freezer.
In the meantime melt chocolate in either the microwave or on the stove. Once chocolate is melted take frozen bananas out of the freezer dipping them into the chocolate and placing them back onto baking sheet.
Let freeze overnight (if you can wait!) and enjoy!
