Glazed Banana Bread Donuts

Next time you whip up banana bread, pipe the batter into your donut pan for a delightful treat glazed in chocolate and sprinkled with salted peanuts.

Glazed Banana Bread Donuts

I picked this recipe, because it is so easy to put together. You do not need a mixer. All you have to do is to mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients, scoop the batter into your donut pan, and bake them for 15 minutes. It is made with whole-wheat flour so it is tiny bit healthier. I think they were just fine by themselves to server with my morning coffee, but the chocolate glaze and salted peanuts took them to another level of deliciousness. Still, if you decide to eat them without the glaze, I bet a little cream cheese and jam wouldn’t make them taste too bad.

Finally, on my first try I spooned the batter into the donut molds, but then I read somewhere that it would be much easier to pipe the batter into the molds using a Ziploc bag or a pastry piping bag. I immediately tried the piping method and it was not only much cleaner to fill the molds, but also much easier and quicker.

  • Author: Aysegül Sanford
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 donuts 1x



For the donuts:

  • 1 ¾ cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 medium very ripe bananas
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg (at room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup packed (3 ½ ounces light brown sugar)
  • ½ cup chopped lightly-salted peanuts (chopped)

For the chocolate glaze:

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons almond milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Degrees. Spray a nonstick donut pan with vegetable cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, and salt.
  3. Using the back of a fork mash the bananas in a large bowl. Whisk in the milk, oil, egg, vanilla extract, and sugar.
  4. Fold the flour mixture into the wet mixture until everything is just combined.
  5. Spoon the mixture into a disposable pipe bag (a big Ziploc bag would work too), cut the bottom part of the bag, and fill each donut mold nearly to the top.
  6. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until donuts spring back when gently pressed. Turn the donuts onto a wire rack and let them cool.
  7. Meanwhile, make the glaze. Sift the powder sugar and cocoa powder into a bowl. Whisk in the almond milk.
  8. Dip each donut in the chocolate glaze and sprinkle them with chopped peanuts. Serve immediately.
  9. As long as they are kept in an airtight container, leftovers will still be good for the next day or two.


The donut recipe is adapted from Andie Mitchell’s new cookbook Eating in the Middle: A Mostly Wholesome Cookbook.
