I don’t like waste, and in the food service industry it is not uncommon to see food go to waste, as not everything always sells before it becomes unsalable.
This was the case with some bananas that were in our fruit basket. They had simply become too ripe. The were headed for the trash can, unless someone wanted them. They did not seem to be in high demand amongst my fellow employees, so I volunteered to find a higher purpose for them than the landfill.
And thus I created this vegan (I still have a whole box of egg replacer!!) banana bread. You could bake it into a load like a typical bread, or you could follow my lead and make petit muffins or mini-donuts.
There is something very darling about a mini donut pan. For a while I worked in a store that sold them, and I always thought to myself, “One day I shall possess one of this charming pans.”
I love donuts. I mean most people like donuts, they just don’t like getting fat. That is why baked vegan mini donuts are a great option. No, it won’t taste like a Krispy Kreme, freshly glazed, off the conveyor belt, but I’m not Harry Potter and magic isn’t real. If you want something to taste high in fat but not be high in fat, then you are outta luck.
But these vegan donuts are a tasty alternative and will satisfy your sweet tooth without burdening your belly.
