Honey Vanilla Glaze


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ripe bananas, chia seeds, flaxseeds, and vanilla extract. Then add the egg. Stir well to combine
  3. Add the baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and coconut flour. Mix until a thick batter has formed
  4. Using wet hands, mold the batter into 12-14 small balls/donut holes. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet
  5. Bake for 20-22 minutes, until balls have set
  6. Remove from the oven, let coo slightly, and place the balls on a wire cooling rack with the baking sheet underneath
  7. Once the balls are fully cooled, start on the glaze
  8. In a small pot, bring the coconut oil, honey, and vanilla extract to a gentle simmer
  9. Remove from heat and pour in the arrowroot/water mixture, whisking vigorously for 1-2 minutes to ensure no clumps form
  10. Let the mixture cool slightly, then pour over the top and sides of the donut holes using a large spoon
  11. Immediately place the wire rack of balls with baking sheet underneath into the freezer and let chill roughly 10 minutes, enough for the glaze to set
  12. If desired, remove the baking sheet from the freezer with any excess glaze that has dripped off, spoon the hardened glaze into a small bowl and microwave just until liquid again. Let cool slightly and pour over the chilled donut holes for another layer of glaze. Chill again in the freezer for the glaze to set
  13. Remove the balls from the freezer and let sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving. If eating later, store in the refrigerator and when ready to serve, set at room temperature for a few minutes
