This is probably the mother of all “pro nuts” I have made thus far… words can’t even describe how tasty these were.  The perfect combination of chocolate, banana, and peanut butter all rolled into 14 bite sized nuggets.  Damn these were good.







Making these with a donut maker does take a TINY bit of effort because you have an added step of putting the batter in a bag to easily “pipe” into the pan but in all honesty, that extra 30 seconds won’t kill ya.  If you don’t have a donut pan or mini maker like mine, you can easily make these into pancakes instead… or even waffles… mmm waffles.  Just make the topping a bit thinner so you can pour it more like a syrup.  Bottom line is there will be a party in your mouth!  Oh and these are also a great option if you meal prep because they refrigerate beautifully, just make the topping separate and you can dip (or dunk) the donuts when you are ready to eat!

After doing this post, these donuts may or may not be on the menu AGAIN for today… so delicious!

    If you’re using a donut pan, how long and on what temp do you cook the donuts?
