Recipe for Chocolate Banana Date Mini Doughnuts made with DateME Boutique all natural date paste

Ingredients

For the Doughnut:

  • 2 large bananas
  • 2 Tbsp. salted butter
  • 2-3 Tbsp. DateME Date Paste
  • ½ vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup + 1 Tbsp. almond flour
  • 1 tsp. coconut flour
  • ¼ cup oat flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ cinnamon (optional)
  • ¼ baking soda
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • 40g dark chocolate, chopped

For the Icing:

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tsp. coconut milk (or milk of choice)
  • ¼ vanilla extract
  • crushed walnuts for topping

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Peel the bananas and mash them together in a large bowl.
  2. Microwave the butter and date paste together until they are melted and mix together easily. Stir the butter and date mixture into the bananas along with the vanilla extract.
  3. Once the mixture cools slightly, whisk in the egg.
  4. In another bowl, mix together the almond flour, oat flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon (if desired).
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Fold in the chopped walnuts and chocolate.
  6. Grease a mini doughnut pan with a little butter and fill each mold with batter so the batter just reaches the top lip of the molds. Bake at 375°F for 15-18 minutes, or until firm and golden. Allow to cool fully before icing.
  7. To make the icing, pour the powdered sugar into a bowl. Add the vanilla extract and mix in the milk one teaspoon at a time until a thick icing forms.
  8. Carefully remove the doughnuts from the pans and press the top of the doughnut into the icing. If the doughnuts are too fragile, you can use the back of a spoon to carefully ice the tops of the doughnuts. Top with crushed walnuts.
