Banana Donuts with Maple Glaze

I have a bunch of bananas that are past their edible on their own so I needed to come up with something to use them in. Most of them I will probably use for banana bread or muffins, but I want something else – Donuts.

In the spirit of fall being just around the corner I decided to do a maple glaze and add some fall spices. I may live in warm weather, but still love all the fall flavors.

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/2 c almond milk, vanilla
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Stir all wet ingredients together, until well combined. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3c Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend
  • 1/2 tsp +1/8 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/3 c maple sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg, ground
  • 1/8 tsp ginger, ground
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt

Whisk together all the dry ingredients, until well combined.

Combine dry and wet ingredients together and stir.

Spoon batter into a Zip-top bag. Snip the corner and pipe batter into donut pan.

Bake 10-12 minutes. Set aside to cool for at least 5 minutes before trying to unmold the donuts.

Maple Glaze:

Combine all glaze ingredients and thoroughly stir.

Dip donuts into glaze. Twist donuts as you remove them from the glaze to prevent drips.
