Healthy, Baked, 12-Minute Banana Chocolate Chip Donuts

Healthy Baked Banana Chocolate Chip Donuts

“Donut talk to me, I’m busy eating.”

Homemade, fluffy, tender, soft, makes-your-eyes-close-and-your-world-spin donuts. I’m obsessed with my donut pan from Sur La Table. I’m obsessed with this store in general. In addition to this waffle pan, I bought two cookie cutters in the shape of a triceratops and another long necked dinosaur whose name I can’t quite recall. Why not?

Back to the donuts. My conclusion is that if it’s this easy to make these in 12 minutes, I’ll probably never buy from a donut shop again.

Healthy, Baked, 12-Minute Banana Chocolate Chip Donuts

Makes: 9 donuts
Time to prepare: 10 minutes prep, 12 minutes baking

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large over-ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup Turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

WHAT DO I DO?

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease your donut pan.
  2. BOWL 1: Mash banana and mix in sugar, Greek yogurt, unsweetened applesauce, egg and vanilla extract.
  3. BOWL 2: Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Add BOWL 1 to BOWL 2 and whisk.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Using a rubber spatula, pour mixture into a large Ziploc bag. Cut one corner of the bag to create a pipe, and pipe the mixture into your donut pan (not filling each donut more than 3/4 of the way full).
  6. Bake for 12 minutes, and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
