These are hands down, one of the best snacks ever! I've actually never had a beignet before, but I've always wanted to try them! A beignet is similar to a donut or fry bread. Traditional beignets are not gluten free and not so healthy. The only flour used in this recipe is WEDO Banana Flour, and I used avocado oil for frying.
Oh, the chocolate peanut dipping sauce is so perfect with the fluffy banana beignets. It's super chocolatey with a beautiful peanut butter flavor! Not only are the beignets and chocolate peanut sauce delicious, they are both quite easy to make as well!

Banana Flour Beignets with a Chocolate-Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce
- 5 very ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup WEDO banana flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon xantham gum
- 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup almond milk (coconut milk would work too)
- avocado oil, for frying
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/2 cup almond milk
Blend bananas, banana flour, baking powder, xantham gum, apple cider vinegar, and almond milk in a blender. Once oil is hot, drop spoonfuls of dough into fryer. Fry for about 2 minutes, flipping halfway. They are done when they are golden brown! Place beignets on a paper towel lined plate to let cool.
While the beignets are cooling, we are going to make the chocolate peanut butter dipping sauce! Heat chocolate chips, peanut butter, coconut oil, and almond milk in a double boiler over medium heat. Once melted, pour into a bowl to serve.
Enjoy!! Beware, it's hard to only eat one! :)
