Gluten Free Strawberry Banana Donuts

Gluten Free Strawberry Banana Donuts

. -These donuts might be gluten free, grain free + dairy free but they are nothing short of amazing.-

Valentines Day is in T-72 hours so I hope you’re ready for the {Love Struck} social media takeover that’s about to take place. Whether it’s sweet treat recipes headlining your favorite blog, florists bombarding you with adds, or your friends + family sharing the infamous couple selfie along with all of the reasons why they {Love} their significant other, it’s time to prepare yourself.

 Gluten free, grain free, flour less, dairy free, donuts, paleo, primal, real food, 

When it comes to this certain red infested, lovey-dovey, chocolate wasted holiday, I’d say people usually have 1 of 4 emotions towards it…

1.     You’re single + not a fan: this is the 1 day of the year you dread more than any other. Watching people shove their {apparent happiness} in your face for an entire 24 hours gets real old, real fast.

2.     You’re too good for it: When asked about Valentines Day your response tends to be as cliché as it gets {Why do we need a holiday for this? We should be celebrating our love all year long}.

3.     You’re love struck: You’ve waited all year for this day + have gone all out planning the most romantic evening with you boo equipped with chocolates, a candle lit dinner, and champagne.

4.     You’re like me: You don’t go wild over the holiday, but you at the same time you don’t mind having {a little love in the air}

I want to make it very clear that I’m not saying any one of these 4 emotions are right or wrong {because they’re not} I’m just saying that the majority of the population is going to fit into one of these categories.

No matter what your opinion is on the holiday, I think we can all agree that come Sunday morning, a nice brunch is something that we would not be opposed to.  It is for that very reason {and because basically everyone I know loves donuts} that I created the following recipe for all of you to enjoy over the upcoming weekend. These donuts might be gluten free, grain free + dairy free but they are nothing short of amazing. Seriously, they are some of the best paleo donuts that we’ve ever whipped up, EVER! So grab your apron + your ingredients and let’s get baking!

Since I don’t obsess over the holiday, I honestly don’t even have set plans yet and I’m 100% ok with that. I wouldn’t mind just hanging at home in my Lululemon sweat pants with a glass of wine + a good movie, but we’ll see what Mr. Schachtner has up his sleeve.
