Check this out..
Preheat the oven to 180C and grease a doughnut pan with coconut oil.
Mash the banana, chia egg, maple syrup, spices and melted coconut oil together. In another bowl mix the flour and baking powder. Pour the wet mix into the dry and combine well with a spoon.
Spoon in the batter and cook for 10 minutes until golden and cooked through.
Depending on the size of your doughnut pan, you might need to cook in two batches.
While this is cooking make the glaze by melting the coconut oil with the nut butter and maple syrup. Stir well until fully combined then leave to the side to cool a little.
You can also glaze your donuts with melted dark or raw chocolate if you are nut free, or just for some extra decadence! Or do a mix of both like I have.
Brush the donuts with the glaze then top with the toppings. They won’t last long because they’re so moreish but if you’re going to savour them, they’ll last in the fridge in an airtight container for a couple of days.
Pancakes with Strawberries and Coconut Cream
For the crepes: Whisk the eggs and milk in a large bowl, slowly shift in the flour and a pinch of salt.
Heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a pan on a medium heat, swirl the oil around to cover the pan.
Pour about 50ml of the batter onto the pan making sure the mixture is distributed evenly. When the edges are set and they start to curl up (after just under a minute) flip over and cook for 30 seconds, then fold in half.
Repeat this same procedure for the rest of the mixture.
To serve, open up each crepes, smear in the coconut yogurt, a drizzle of honey and the strawberries, fold in half then into quarters and serve.
Note – The wet mix will keep in the fridge a few days so you can enjoy them a few times more.
In case you haven’t noticed it yet; our Giving Tree fruit crisps are really special as they are freeze dried. Sounds pretty fancy,
