These gluten-free banana bread donuts are a great reason to wake up in the morning! Soft and moist banana bread is baked into fluffy donuts and then drizzled with an easy and quick honey cream cheese drizzle.
Happy Monday y’all! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I had a girls weekend with my mom at my place and we did some major demo work and painting in the farm house (more on that in a later post!). We also did some recipe creating. Mom came with an idea on how to make jalapeno poppers even more amazing (coming very soon to a blog near you!) and I decided to tweak my old college roomie’s banana bread recipe into a gluten-free banana bread donut version with a very out-of-the-blue honey cream cheese drizzle idea. Both ideas turned out amazing, so that means that the weekend was a busy success.
I made these gluten-free banana bread donuts on Sunday morning for breakfast and we stuffed as many as we could down. Then for lunch and dinner (and who am I kidding, and for a snack) we cashed in the rest of these simple breakfast rings. The combination of flours used along with the banana make it a fluffy and moist donut, surrounded by sweet cream cheese drizzle mixed with warm honey for a perfectly-not-too-sweet topping that complements this breakfast twist with finger-licking precision.
These are easily made before church or school, but if you need a good reason to wake up on a monday morning, make these donuts ahead of time the night before. They stay great overnight in an airtight container or zippie bag. Just drizzle the honey cream cheese icing on just before devouring. For shizzle.
Banana Bread Donuts + Honey Cream Cheese Drizzle
- 2/3 cup brown rice flour
- 2/3 cup tapioca flour
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup butter melted
- 2.5 very ripe bananas mashed
- 4 oz . GF cream cheese softened
- 2/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1 TBSP fresh honey
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 350*F. Spray your donut tin with cooking spray and set aside.
Combine the flours, granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, eggs, water, butter, and bananas in a large mixing bowl. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
Add the batter to the donut tin, filling each donut 2/3 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes (it's 13 minutes in my oven) or until the edges of the donuts turn a nice golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
TO MAKE DRIZZLE:
Combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, honey, and vanilla extract and mix well. Drizzle over each donut before eating.
