We have to admit that we were shocked that these worked and by worked we mean that the kids ate them and thought they were doughnuts! We are always looking for ways to get more fiber and protein in the kids and while you may think buckwheat is just that, wheat, but it isn't! Buckwheat is actually a seed, so for those that are gluten sensitive, it is gluten free, grain free. We didn't replace all the flour with the buckwheat, so this recipe is not gluten-free, but we did cut down quite a bit of it, and the buckwheat imparts a nutty, earthy flavor to these baked doughnuts. The kids preferred the chocolate drizzled ones, and we liked the powdered sugar so make some of each!

These Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Doughnuts is visually appealing to the eye. I hope that it is also tasty. To be honest, I do not like sweets. My dentist would tell me to stop consuming foods that are sweet as it can destroy your teeth with plaque and gingivitis. Before I am tempted to eat anything sweet such as this doughnut, I simultaneously use my mouthwash and brush my teeth for protection. I can't afford another dental procedure this time around.
