These Banana Snickerdoodle Donut Muffins are a delicious and healthy start to your morning with a big cup of coffee! You would never guess that they are paleo and gluten-free!

The only time I like going to the bank is Saturdays. You may wonder why, but after explaining, you will totally understand.

These Banana Snickerdoodle Donut Muffins are a delicious and healthy start to your morning with a big cup of coffee!

I always associate the bank with donuts because the bank that I go (at home) to always gives out fresh coffee and munchkins on Saturday morning. It’s like jammed packed on Saturday’s and you literally have to get to the bank right when it opens to be able to grab a munchkin before they are all gone!

No wonder why my Dad always happily agrees to go to the bank on Saturday, what a smart man.

Just thinking about munchkins right now is making me drool. I love when they are freshly warm and coated in cinnamon-sugar, then i dunk them in coffee. You can’t have donuts without coffee, it’s like peanut butter without jelly. I don’t want to be biased, but these are some of the best donut holes I have ever tasted! I can’t believe how ridiculously close these taste to Dunkin’s Munchkins! These Banana Snickerdoodle Donut Muffins are so fluffy and moist, you would never be able to guess that they are healthy! You may never want to buy donut holes again!

Warning: these are also highly addicting and you may eat them all!

    Oh my gosh – these look so good! I am pinning this recipe to try later in the week! I love to make muffins or little treats to enjoy with my coffee on the weekends 🙂

  • Reply Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious March 7, 2016 at 10:41 am

    How good do these look! I can’t believe they have bananas too. Do people still go to the bank? I think the last time I went was a 3 years ago to get a cashier check for my new house. I do all my banking online now!

      Thank you! I usually deposit checks on my wells fargo app now but when I’m not in college I go to my local bank at home because of those donuts!

  • Reply Hilary March 7, 2016 at 11:03 am

    I love that these are mini! They are so cute and anything including almonds and bananas are my favorite!

    Nothing sounds more delicious right now than one of these with a cup of coffee <3

    Everyone loves free food, it’s a fact, that bank knows what’s up! But I want your homemade munchkins even more than the DD ones, so maybe you should open a bank and then I could camp out on Friday night to be the first to steal all the Banana Snickerdoodle Donuts 🙂

    • Reply Bethany And Rachel March 11, 2016 at 10:16 am

      I wish I could open up a bank haha! Then I would give these donuts out everyday!

  • Reply Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine March 7, 2016 at 4:06 pm

    We have a DD right by our house and the people know us there so when I was a little girl and I would go in with my parents, they would always give me a bag of free munchkin…for being cute!! Hahahahaha!

    These look great!! I guess I need to join a new bank!

    My mouth just filled up with drool – LOL um.. THat’s gross, but it’s TRUE!!

  • Reply Ashley @ Fit Mitten Kitchen March 8, 2016 at 11:18 am

    oh my gosh these are TOO cute! I’m all about snickerdoodle anything. But my favorite munchkin flavor (I’m actually a Timbits girl myself 😉 ) is honestly the traditional glazed! I like the yeast style donuts a little bit more than the cake style.

    • Reply Bethany And Rachel March 11, 2016 at 10:01 am

      Thank you! glazed is pretty awesome too, heck, any type of munchkin is great!

    Yum! Yum! Yum! I love mini donuts of all kinds. Heck, I love all sorts of donuts. 🙂

    YUM! I love finding healthy baking recipes. And I personally think adding cinnamon to almost anything makes it delicious, I just love that spice! =)

  • Reply Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health March 8, 2016 at 11:57 pm

    What?! Your bank gives out donuts? I need to open an account there immediately 🙂

    These look amazing! I love that you combined banana and snickerdoodle. YUM!

  • Reply Linda | The Baker Who Kerns March 9, 2016 at 9:47 am

    Ummmm I want to go to YOUR bank! It sounds like your bank has the right idea. Mine gives out free pens and I always used to think that was so cool cause they are like REALLY GOOD pens. But now I feel fooled hahaha. But speaking of these munchkins! It is so cool that these are gluten-free and vegan! I don’t eat donuts at all anymore cause I just feel terrible afterwards with all the sugar and processed flour! Definitely saving these for later!

    • Reply Bethany And Rachel March 11, 2016 at 9:54 am

      Hey pens are pretty cool too! I hope you get to try these, they certainly won’t make you feel like crap after!

  • Reply Sam @ PancakeWarriors March 9, 2016 at 9:59 am

    YUMM!!! Seriously munchkins are the best, and freshly bakes… drool!! I’m loving that these are snicker-doodle, I never think of that flavor outside of the holidays!! So perfect!

  • Reply Gretchen | Gretchruns March 9, 2016 at 6:00 pm

    Um that is a great bank you have there haha! I work for one and even I don’t get free donuts. These look amazing and i’ll have to try them out!

  • Reply March 10, 2016 at 10:58 am

    Free donuts and fresh coffee from your bank? Wow! That’s never happened here. They’re only interesting in taking your money, not giving you anything ins return.

    If they were serving up sweet things as nice as there, I wouldn’t complain so much!! 🙂
