Despite the craziness of the world right now, we are committed to sharing the love this Easter with some delicious baked goods, and why not get creative, seeing as most of us have found ourselves with a little (ok maybe a lot) more time on our hands.
Up next in our Easter #stayhomeandbake series, we have teamed up with Amy from Nourishing Amy to bring you these mouthwatering banana bread donuts, made using our all-natural Banana Loaf mix. Amy is a plant-based recipe developer and food stylist who infuses her recipes and colourful Instagram feed with much more than just wholesome ingredients.

What you’ll need:
290g mashed banana
50g sunflower oil
50g chocolate chips
50g crushes pecans
100g chocolate, melted
Crushed pecans (approx. 20g)
What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 160Fan/180*C and grease 12 donut holes
2. Stir together the banana bread loaf mix, mashed banana and sunflower oil in a bowl until combined. Add in the chocolate chips and pecans and stir again.
3. Divide the batter between the donut holes (about 2 large tablespoons of batter per donut) and bake for 15-17 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
4. Allow to cool fully. Melt the chocolate and place in a bowl. Dip each donut into the chocolate and sprinkle over some crushed pecans.
