🍩 Donuts for breakfast?? AMEN to that! Sawyer has a habit of coming downstairs for breakfast and asking for the most random foods. For a week straight, he only wanted turkey slices and cucumbers at 8am. This week, he only wants chocolate (my kinda guy!). These breakfast treats are a great compromise when my kids want sweets for breakfast, and I don’t feel like explaining why that’s not the best idea 😅😅
🍌 Made with nutritious gluten-free whole grain oats, sweetened naturally by fruit and pure maple syrup, and protein-rich from peanut butter, these donuts are great for meal prep as well as on-the-go snacks.
Preheat oven to 350F and grease a silicone muffin pan.
In a large bowl, mix together your dry ingredients: oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together your wet ingredients: milk, mashed banana, peanut butter, egg, maple syrup, and vanilla.
Pour wet ingredients into dry oat mixture. Add in chocolate chips. Mix until just incorporated together (overmixing leads to a drier muffin).
Pour batter into silicone donut pan.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!
