Happy Birthday Hannah!

It's my roommates 19th birthday today! In her words, she is now only one year away from being old. :) The poor thing had to work all day, and tonight she has a night class until 8:45. I invited a couple of our friends over to surprise her when she gets back.

Hannah is one of the most thoughtful people I know. She always tries to make others feel loved and appreciated. Whenever someone she knows is having a bad day, she does her best to cheer them up. She goes all out for surprise birthday gifts and parties. She never let's anyone feel left out. Her spiritual gift is most definitely giving. She gives the most thoughtful gifts ever, and she gives gifts often. (I can't keep up.) I thought that she deserved a very special card. After a bit of looking around on Pinterest, I decided to make a pop out box card. Here are the instructions for making your own.
Hannah is going home for the weekend, and her number one request was that her mom get her some doughnuts from her favorite little bakery. Since she is a fan of the peanut butter and chocolate combination, I thought these doughnuts would be very appropriate to share today.

How could you go wrong with peanut butter banana chocolate chip doughnuts? These things are to die for.

I had some leftover batter, so I used it to make Long Johns too. They are like baked doughnuts, only bigger. And bigger means better in my world.

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Doughnuts
makes 6 doughnuts and 2 long johns
1 cup peanut flour
1 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
½ cup melted butter
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 egg whites
2 ripe bananas
2/3 cup milk
2.5 ounces dry roasted peanuts, unsalted
¾ cup chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and oil a 6 hole doughnut pan and 2 holes of a long john pan. Using a food processor, process the oats into a flour. Combine all the dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips together. Mix well. Process the peanuts into peanut butter. Next blend together the apple cider vinegar, eggs, milk, and bananas. In one big bowl, stir together the wet ingredients, dry ingredients, and peanut butter. Add in the chocolate chips. Divide the batter between the prepared pans. Bake the doughnuts for 8 minutes, and the long johns for 18, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Leave the doughnuts in the pan for 5 minutes to cool before removing.
