When it comes to donuts, I believe it would be hard to find a person who doesn’t like them. The varieties of sweet, tender, fragrant donuts are endless.

I had a few swaps to make this recipe for baked donuts a bit healthier.

Coconut oil is a nice change from vegetable oil, and whole wheat pastry flour (Bob’s Red Mill makes a brand available almost anywhere for less then $5 a bag), is a terrific whole grain choice for baking flour.

Can I convince you that these baked donuts rival your local bakery’s deep fried offerings?

Baked Banana Donuts
 
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large banana, over-ripe and mashed
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour
Instructions
  1. Melt coconut oil and allow to cool slightly. Then add honey and eggs and combine.
  2. Add vanilla and mashed banana and combine well.
  3. Add cinnamon and pastry flour. Fold in, but don't over combine or donuts will be tough.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 and fill a non-stick mini donut baking pan with dough. Do not overfill cups. I filled mine just to the top.

      My daughter-in-law gave me this donut maker last year and I used it once during the holidays, then forgot about it. Now that I found this easy recipe, I’ll be sure to use it more often. Have a good weekend. :)

    Baked donuts are really good! My wife has been playing with baked donut recipes, and the flavor is remarkably good. Now if only she can figure out how to bake one of those jelly-filled donuts! Good post – thanks.

    Kristin, I must say that I am convinced that your baked Banana Donuts rival any deep-fried versions! We do not eat many donuts around here but I have tasted enough to decide that homemade baked ones are much tastier than the store-bought varieties. I like that you used coconut oil and whole wheat flour for your wonderful sounding recipe! Hope that you and your family had a terrific start into the new year!

      I’m with you in that I don’t bake a lot of donuts either, but these were fun to make, and my husband enjoyed them for his birthday breakfast. I hope you have a wonderful week! :)

    Looks delicious Kristi! Love the healthier take. Yeah things might be a teeny bit tastier after being deep-fried but I feel a lot better after eating something like this :)

    These look great – do you happen to know the sodium content? I wanted to make these for a friend who is on a very restricted salt diet (as in none to the extent possible).

    • says

      Hi Fran, thank you for visiting my blog. The software I use calculate the sodium as 49mg. You’ll notice most of my recipes don’t require additional salt (hypertension runs in my family), but there is always natural sodium in the ingredients. I hope people will add salt to their taste. :)
