Description

Whole wheat banana donuts that are baked not fried and dipped in a pure peanut butter glaze for a easy and healthier breakfast treat that’s oh so yummy to eat!


Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup fat free milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • sprinkles, if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a regular size donut pan (that makes 6 donuts) with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk and vanilla. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in the mashed bananas.
  3. Place batter in a large resealable plastic bag and snip off one of the corners. Pipe batter into prepared donut pan, filling each ring about 2/3 full. If you have two pans, you could go ahead and use all of the batter at once. If not, you will need to bake the donuts in two batches.
  4. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until donuts are set and spring back up when touched. Let cool in pan 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Repeat process with remaining batter until you have 12 donuts.
  5. While donuts are cooling, microwave the peanut butter in a shallow bowl for about 45-60 seconds or until melted and smooth. Dip the top of each donut into and out of the melted peanut butter twice and then turn upside down on a wire rack that’s set over a baking sheet so the peanut butter can drip down the sides of the donut and the excess onto the baking sheet. Sprinkle with sprikles, if desired.
  6. Serve right away or let rest until the peanut butter sets, about 30 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
