Yesterday was my son’s birthday. I wanted to surprise him with yummy gluten free baked banana doughnuts for breakfast. I got busy in the kitchen and came up with the following recipe. This recipe is quick and easy and if you do not have a doughnut pan you can bake them as muffins. You can order a doughnut pan on Amazon or pick one up at a second hand store or garage sale. We found our doughnut pan at a second hand store for $.99. I love finding a good deal. This pan is so great and the doughnuts don’t stick. They fall right out of the pan. These baked doughnuts are great served for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee or tea and are equally enjoyable any time of the day. Next time you are craving fresh doughnuts whip up a batch of these gluten free baked banana doughnuts and enjoy!
