Double chocolate banana donuts

February 9, 2020

I use to create donut recipes more often than I do now and I want to get back into making I am putting a list together of potential flavors to try. First up were these double chocolate banana donuts, they are decadent and delicious, reminded me of chocolate cake, yum! These baked treats are just 2SP each on both blue & purple program and 3SP on green.

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 6 hole donut pan with some cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk the egg and stir in the sugar, mashed banana, milk and vanilla.
  3. Stir in flour, baking powder and cocoa powder then fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Divide batter into the 6 donut holes, they should be filled to the top.

    Could you substitute flour for almond flour?

      Hi Stephanie, I know AF bakes very differently so all I can suggest is to try it and see

    Sounds yummy! Do you have a substitute for banana…I have a son who cannot eat them. Would applesauce work?

      You could try applesauce, they should work .. I have a recipe for chocolate glazed donuts with no banana that you can use

    The one pan I don’t have is a donut pan. How about making these in a muffin or muffin top tin instead?

    If I dont have a donut pan, do you think this recipe would still work in a muffin pan?

    Hi Kate, thank you so much for posting the recipes. I have made a few and they all have been awesome. I have a question about the donuts, I made them today even though I am not a fan of bananas ๐Ÿ™ they tasted good with a hint of the banana. My question is do you think it would work if i substituted applesauce in place of the banana?

      Hi, thanks for your kind words ๐Ÿ™‚ in most cases applesauce will work as a good substitute for banana so I say give it a go ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made these yesterday and they came out good but they are more dense than yours look in the pictures, other that using skim milk followed the recipe to a T. Any suggestions?

      It is so hard to say when I am not there, while I do have some muffin/loaf recipes that are denser these donuts were not very dense at all.. sorry I can’t be more help, maybe a smaller banana?

    I made these today in a 16-mini muffin tin. I used 1% milk, a large banana, and semi-sweet mini chocochips. Checked them after 14 minutes then baked them 1 more minute for good measure. I thought about inserting marbles in the middles to make donuts, but was too lazy to find them. They tasted very good and were not dense at all.
