Banana chocolate chip baked donuts. Say no more.



Did someone say donuts? 🍩

I don't think I have to ask who here likes donuts. I think we all know the answer to that question. πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ½ I have been wanting to share one of my favorite recipes with you guys for so long, but I couldn't decide where to start. The other day while working on another project, I had an epiphany. DONUTS. These aren't just any donuts though. I like to call them a "healthier donut." Argue with me all you want, but it makes me feel better about eating all of them. πŸ˜‚ The ingredients are simple, the results are yummy, and the recipe requires greek yogurt and bananas so how bad could they be? Am I right?


Don't tell me this isn't how you spell it also. πŸ™ŠπŸŒ
