Butternut Banana Donuts









     Life just keeps getting better and better...or should I say butter and butter....as in Butternut Banana Donuts!  If you haven't used pureed steamed Butternut in your baked goods you are missing out...big time!  Each of these 8 Donuts are only 115 calories, 6g net carbs and 8g protein.  Have one for a snack, have two for breakfast or have 3 for a meal!  I would feel very good about encouraging these as a well balanced lunch...how's that for nutrition with a smile!  If you love a moist decadent treat, these really fit the bill!  :)

Ingredients for 8 Donuts~
