Maple Bacon Banana Donuts

To all of the Vegan Potluckers out there! Today is donuts day!
Donuts have always been a great thing to make for me. The sugar glaze and the sweet taste make them an ideal dessert that you can consume on breakfast before your morning walk!
Today’s recipe is quite unique (You’ll definitely like it). Plus, it’s obnoxiously healthy!!

Aside from being vegan they also have no oil in them whatsoever, but they are still fluffy and rich. I’ve never been a salt/ carb person, but I do love how the crunchy salty “bacon” plays off the sweetness of the rest of the donut. It was definitely worth the investment for the $10 donut pan. I used to think donuts had to be fried or were hard to make, so I always put it off, but these could not have been easier. They are actually dangerously easy if you are like me, have no self-control, and might all the donuts in one day sitting.

For “taste testing” purposes (ie. I couldn’t wait long enough to glaze them before I started eating them) I had some of the donuts plain, and the banana flavor is SO good. Are banana donuts a thing I just never had before? Have I just been eating boring donuts? I feel like I eat so much, and yet and I’m always discovering new things I like to eat. I guess that’s not a bad thing…

Anyway, thanks for visiting my little spot, and I hope you explore a bit and find more food you like! Please Like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter! Below the recipe you will find links to the previous and following recipes in the Potluck. Happy Eating!!
