Chunky Monkey Donut Recipe | Delicious & Simple Baking

Donut for your thoughts?!

Today on the blog, I thought i’d share one of my all-time favourite recipes I discovered on Instagram that is actually DELICIOUS, and filled with simple and wholesome ingredients! We’re making donuts!

These are dubbed the Chunky Monkey Pancake Mix Donuts by the two girls behind @AthleticAvocado (found here!) These girls make awesome recipes (especially desserts!) and share them on their Insta page! Honestly, all of their recipes have less than 10 ingredients, and they are usually stuff you have in your cupboard! These donuts are super easy for anyone attempting to try to bake, or someone who just wants to stop eating junk and really know what’s going into their baked goods! Really hope you enjoy!
