Funfetti Banana Squares – Gluten & Dairy Free

There are times when bananas are much loved and enjoyed and then other times they are left to go brown and not as attractive looking but that’s when they become magical and the most wonderful of ingredients. The riper a banana, the sweeter it is and this helps to reduce the addition of sugar in a recipe.

This recipe has no refined sugars as it uses Organic Maple Syrup for a little sweetness. You can also use Agave Syrup or an artificial sweetener. I use a combination of Almond Flour and Oat Flour and of course Sprinkles!! Almond Flour is not the same as Ground Almonds so be aware when prepping your ingredients.

Baked Doughnuts

These baked doughnuts are a great alternative to the original fried ones which albeit are pretty delicious, they are heavy on the calories and fat! I used fat free natural yoghurt to make these. To decorate, I made a chocolate glaze and only covered the top of each doughnut with this but if they were for a party or special occasion, you can put most of the doughnut into the glaze mix to almost completely cover them and then dip into a bowl of your chosen sprinkles to finish off.

If you have kids, they will love decorating these!
