These Healthy Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Donuts are one of our all-time favorite baked goods. Made with oats, cacao, banana and other wholesome ingredients they make a great snack or on-the-go breakfast for the whole family.
If you follow me on IG or read my blog you probably notice by know how much I like oatmeal. It is one of my to go breakfasts whether is on-the-go or on slow mornings. However, I didn’t always felt that way about oatmeal. I have some memories of when my brothers and me where still kids and my mom wanted us to have oatmeal for breakfast. She would just serve us some oatmeal on a bowl and pour over some milk. From what I can remember it wasn’t really good (sorry mom). And since I want Adrian to eat oatmeal and actually like it I try to come up with tasty recipes that a one-year-old would actually enjoy.
These Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Donuts are one of his favorite baked goods. Whenever I prepared them I try to do a big batch so they would last us for the whole week. You can keep them on the fridge for up to 7 days without a problem.
They are great on mornings where we are on a rush and I don’t have time to cook him some breakfast or as a snack in the late afternoon after his nap.
If you have kids (or, you know, not) and are looking for healthy on-the-go breakfast ideas look no further!
