Banana chocolate chip baked donuts. Say no more.
Did someone say donuts? 🍩
I don't think I have to ask who here likes donuts. I think we all know the answer to that question. 🙋🏼🙋🙋🏻🙋🏽 I have been wanting to share one of my favorite recipes with you guys for so long, but I couldn't decide where to start. The other day while working on another project, I had an epiphany. DONUTS. These aren't just any donuts though. I like to call them a "healthier donut." Argue with me all you want, but it makes me feel better about eating all of them. 😂 The ingredients are simple, the results are yummy, and the recipe requires greek yogurt and bananas so how bad could they be? Am I right?
Don't tell me this isn't how you spell it also. 🙊🍌
Ok recipe time. 😋 Credit to Janies Kitchen for this lovely recipe.
1 cup bananas (mashed, ripe. Roughly 2 small bananas)
½ cup raw cane sugar
½ cup fat free greek yogurt (I use 0% Fage)
¼ cup unsalted butter (melted)
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups spelt white flours (you can also use AP flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips (I used Semi-sweet chocolate)
Topping - Optional
¼ cup raw cane sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 160°C / 325°F / Gas Mark 3.
Using your electric mixer with the whisk attachment, add the mashed banana, sugar and Greek yogurt. Mix until incorporated.
Add melted butter, eggs and vanilla extra and mix.
Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to the batter and mix until just incorporated. Do not over mix!
Using a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.
