1 1/2 cups white rice flour

1 1/2 cups almond meal 

6 tablespoons sugar (we like organic cane sugar)

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup refined coconut oil or other oil (see Cook's Note)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

8 bananas, very ripe

2 eggs

1/4 cup chocolate chips, or as desired


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix the white rice flour, almond meal, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl, mix the coconut oil, vanilla extract, bananas and eggs. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, being careful not to over-mix. Lastly, add the chocolate chips. Pour into doughnut pans and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. They are done with the center bounces back when touched.

Cook’s Note

If using coconut oil, use a water bath to melt the oil.
