  • Preheat the oven to 400F
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas. 
  • To the mashed bananas, add the water, applesauce and egg replacer. Stir well making sure the egg replacer is very well mixed in
  • Add the protein powder, cacao powder and tigernut flour to the bowl of wet ingredients and mix well. 
  • After the wet and dry ingredients are incorporated, add the sunbutter (or your favorite nut butter) and stir well. 
  • Add the baking powder to the mixture and stir well, being sure to fully incorporate into the mixture. 
  • Divide the batter evenly among 2 donut pans, making a total of 16 mini donuts. Be sure to clean off the center to ensure you get a donut, not a cookie
  • Bake at 400F for 20 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the counter. Move to the fridge and allow to cool (about 30 minutes)
  • Add the unsweetened chocolate to a small ceramic bowl or glass measuring cup. Melt the unsweetened chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well between.  This usually takes 1 minute total.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, take the donuts out of the fridge and drizzle the chocolate over the donuts using a spoon. 
  • Store the donuts in the fridge up to 5 days in a sealed container.
