Prevention RD. I love banana bread, Dave loves when I break out the donut pan, so I knew we'd have a winner. I decided to change the frosting on these to highlight the amazing combination of peanut butter and banana. These are a perfect treat for a weekend morning.
For the donuts, you will need:
*6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup over-ripe banana, mashed (about 1 1/2-2 small bananas)
3 tablespoons canola oil
*1/2 tsp vanilla extract
*1 tablespoon nonfat Greek yogurt
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
*1/4 teaspoon baking powder
*3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour
For the peanut butter frosting, you will need:
*3 tablespoons peanut butter
*2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
*about 1/4 cup powdered sugar
*splash of milk
1. Preheat your oven to 350 F. Spray doughnut pan with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg and sugar for about 10 minutes, until the mixture is light and pale. Stir in the banana, oil, vanilla, and yogurt.
3. In a separate bowl whisk together the salt, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and flour. Add to the egg mixture; stir together until combined. Spoon the batter into the prepared doughnut pan, filling wells 1/2 way, and bake for 10-12 minutes.
3. Make the frosting topping by combining all ingredients and mixing well. You can add more powdered sugar or milk to help reach desired consistency. Spread on cooled donuts using a flat spatula.
