Donuts are yummy, fun and super cute for the ‘gram… AND they can be made with whole food ingredients baked to fluffy perfection that won’t ruin your hard work in the gym. These donuts are low in sugar and have collagen to add a little bit of protein and keep your hair, skin, nails, and joints super healthy!

Ingredients:

1 cup almond flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

3 scoops collagen

1/8 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

½ cup unsweetened almond milk

2 eggs

1/3 cup honey

¼ cup melted coconut oil

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

½ tsp vanilla

¼ tsp almond extract

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350º. Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl and the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a whisk until it forms a batter. Spoon the batter into a greased donut pan (only fill it about half way so it has room to rise!) and bake for 8-12 minutes.

Fig and Dark Chocolate Banana Bread

Fig and Dark Chocolate Banana Bread

IMG_6552.JPGI LOVE banana bread. Pumpkin bread is good, I even have a special place in my heart for zucchini bread, but banana bread always takes the cake. Now typically I would add something basic like walnuts to my banana bread, but I didn’t have walnuts… what I did have was dried figs and let me tell you I’m so glad that I did. This combo is so yummy and different and the dried figs add a caramel-y flavor that’s perfect with chocolate chips.

Ingredients:

1 cup buckwheat flour

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/3 cup coconut oil

2 tbsp honey

3 over ripe bananas

2 eggs

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla

2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (optional)

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Foods Dairy Free Chocolate Chips)

1/2 cup chopped dried figs

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350. Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl and add the rest of the wet ingredients and the coconut sugar. Mix the wet ingredients then slowly add in the dry ingredients mixing as you go. Dump in your chocolate chips and dried figs and mix them in (pro tip: lightly coat your chocolate chips with a little bit of flour to avoid them all sinking to the bottom of the batter). Pour into a loaf pan greased with coconut oil and bake for 40-45 minutes.
