2 large bananas
1.5 cups golden flax seeds
Peel the 2 large bananas and put both in a large mixing bowl.
Using a fork slowly mash the bananas.
Pour flax seeds into blender and blend into a very fine powder.
Mix flax seed powder and bananas until thoroughly mixed.(Adjust the amount of flax seeds to achieve desired moistness and firmness of donuts.
Form "dough" into ball and poke hole in the middle to shape like a donut.
For Chocolate Donut - use equal parts carob powder and coconut nectar, and coat donut.
For Glazed Donut - coat with coconut oil and then with coconut nectar.(
For Cinnamon Donut - coat with coconut oil and then sprinkle with cinnamon.(
People LOVE the above recipes, they demonstrate how quick, easy and delicious all my recipes are. Some of my other recipes are as simple or more gourmet and amazing too of course.

This is a really simple recipe for something you would think would be really hard to make raw. Sometimes raw is easy :)

Gonna try this. Thx

BTW what is coconut nectar?

Here's the coconut nectar:
But you could use another raw liquid sweetener....honey, agave, etc.

These are ok. I only made half the recipe. I made them plain then topped with a little raspberry sauce which enhanced it and disguised the prominent flax flavor. It may taste better with the other coatings, I just didn't wasn't in the mood for them today. Maybe my banana needed to be sweeter. It did take about 5 minutes to make, which was a plus.

Thanks for trying them and getting back to us!
Your body will thank you for the extra flax, I am sure....lol....

Yes. I do need the flax. I'm still gonna eat them, :)

I made these yesterday and felt he same way. But I put them in the fridge and had one today. Much better today (I guess the banana permeated the flax seeds better or something). I do wonder if the doughnut "batter" was a bit sweeter, they might be better. Maybe adding some dates or something. I was never a doughnut fan so I'm not sure if they taste like doughnuts but I was wanting something a bit sweeter.

I am changing my mind on these. I am completely addicted to them and love them now. I started making them with a little more flax seed and really working the banana in it (I think you are supposed to anyway but I think I didn't mix it up enough maybe).
And for my glaze, I melted coconut oil and added just a little bit of honey and a bit of stevia plant and some cocoa and mixed it really well and dipped both sides of the donut in that (wasn't all the way around but top and bottom). Then I stuck them in the freezer for a bit. My body is loving all that flax seed. Hope you can't overdose on flax seed! :p :)
My raw food isn't very pretty but it was yummy! :) (It really wasn't much cocoa added but it looks like a lot. It's mostly coconut oil.)

If you keep this up, I am going to have to make these instantly. It is not on my KISS menu at the moment. Perhaps I will have to make tomorrow before the 30 day challenge begins. I am trying to limit heavier recipes to weekends and even then keep an eye on myself. I need as much fresh produce in my worn out old body as possible right now, LOL. Wonder if they can be frozen?? I bet yes. That might work.

WOW, adobegirl, those look great!!!

I made these a couple of years ago and I was not crazy about them... I didn't like the flax in it. Ani Phyo's donut holes do more for me..
They did look fabulous, though...
I saw in a comment on the original site where he said he dehydrated them. Maybe I'll try them again and dehydrate mine. I'll let you know how they turn out...
01-30-2012, 07:27 AM
I think you're right, adobegirl, they did taste better the next day, and maybe even better with one more ingredient in the mixture. Your picture looks nice. I took pictures on my phone, but they aren't as nice, maybe too much flash.

I wonder if it just depends on what your body needs and is craving sometimes. There have been times in the past where I couldn't get enough flax seeds, to the point where I would just put a spoonful in my mouth and chew and chew them until they were all ground up. I also made flax seed tea every day around that time. They tasted amazing to me. And then I went through another time where I'm not sure anyone could pay me to eat flax seed. Every time I tried, I felt like yuck, what is this? Maybe they are tasting so much better now because my body needs them.
I'll have to go have a look for the donut holes from Ani Phyo. I have one of her books here. I'll have to see if it's in there. :)
Our health food store just started carrying the raw coconut crystals so next time I make these donuts, I'm going to melt the coconut oil, dip the donuts in them and then sprinkle them with the coconut crystals. I hope I'm not donut-ed out by then, lol. :eat

Ani has pineapple in hers, I believe its dried pineapple, along with other ingredients. Haven't tried this version yet. Maybe next go round.
01-31-2012, 06:48 PM
Yes, Ani's have a lot more and expensive ingredients. I haven't tried either yet, but if the banana/flax ones satisfied that would be awesome!
02-02-2012, 08:04 PM
Gonna give this a shot. I don't have any coconut oil though. Any substitutes?
03-19-2012, 01:34 AM
How did you guys get them to keep shape like a donut?
03-19-2012, 07:09 AM
I still haven't made these, so I can't answer your question. Hopefully someone will soon!

Bryan Au states to, "Adjust the amount of flax seeds to achieve desired moistness and firmness of donuts.", depending on the bananas I assume. The firmer the banana the less flaxseeds one would need and vice versa (?)...

They look so green--did you use green stevia---Good for St Patrick's Day and Xmas
