Donuts, baby! I love ’em. You should know that from seeing this blog. Ha! The donut pan Adam got me years ago has been one of my most-used kitchen items. I’ve got it down to a science: I can whip up a pretty basic batch of them in less than 30 minutes, sugar glaze included.
Talk about a useful life skill. Ha!
I have tried my hand at healthier donuts, as I’ve shown on this blog before with my Vegan Orange Polenta Baked Donuts. Candace asked if I could whip up something for her blog, and I think I went a lovely healthy-ish route with these Baked Banana Donuts!
Though you can always use white sugar, white flour, and vegetable oil, I believe in the power of whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, and a combination of coconut oil and unsweetened apple sauce as well! Frankly…these donuts kick ass! They are akin to little portable banana breads, with a nice chewy texture without being overly sweet. The added sugar doesn’t do the talking here, it’s the bananas.
