Spring!! Spring is coming and I’m feeling all the excitement. But mainly, I’m just so excited to share these doughnuts! The only thing they actually have to do with spring is the fact that I made them for Easter. Whether that’s an Easter brunch, Easter dessert, or just some fun Easter baking, I LOVE them so much.

Also, happy St.Patrick’s Day everyone! These could be equally great for today as well. I even used some Lucky Charms marshmallows to decorate!

But these are meant to be my Easter doughnuts! My family and I are truly obsessed with them – Asher, Oslo, mom, and dad, we all really adored these doughnuts.

All the gushing aside, the inspiration came from two places. My blender banana muffins, which if you have not yet made, you really need to. I made several batches because the requests kept coming (Asher and Oslo loved them!). The other inspiration is my newfound fascination with baking doughnuts. I’ve just really gotten into making doughnuts this year, they are so cute and yummy!

Just a few weeks ago I made blackout doughnuts, and now peanut butter banana doughnuts. But to be very honest, I love these doughnuts even more. As I said, I’m kind of obsessed. They’re just so fun, so easy, and SO DELICIOUS!

I really love that they’re not overly sugary. They’re actually on the healthier side (aside from the decorations), so you gotta love that!

You just need a couple of mixing bowls and some simple ingredients for these!

Add all of the wet ingredients to the bowl first. Start with the bananas, then the peanut butter, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla. All ingredients I always have on hand.

Mix up the wet ingredients – be sure to mash up the bananas first. Then add the dry, just whole wheat flour (though all-purpose works nicely too), baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Then blend one more time to just combine everything and stir in the coconut oil.

Once the batter is ready to go, bake in a doughnut pan. If you don’t have a doughnut pan, make doughnut holes using either a regular muffin pan or a mini muffin pan. Either option works just the same.

The glaze

Oh, the glaze, or glazes I should say. They make doughnuts and both are so simple. Just chocolate chips and either avocado oil or milk.

If you use milk, you get a really creamy, dark, and rich glaze that stays softer on the doughnuts. It’s delicious and leaves you with chocolatey fingers – fun! If you use oil, you’ll get a more stiff glaze that really sets up and hardens once the doughnuts cool.

Both are equally delicious, it’s more of a texture thing. The chocolate + milk glaze is creamy and fudgy. While the chocolate + oil glaze is more firm, like milk chocolate.

To decorate – the fun part, I used a mix. Some doughnuts have chocolate sprinkles. For the others, I took leftover marshmallows from the Lucky Charms box and crushed them over the doughnuts.

They turned out sooo cute. I love the pastel Easter colors! Just looking at these makes me happier! Enjoy a few doughnuts while the glaze is still warm – yummmy!

Each bite is filled with sweet, fluffy, peanut butter banana cake and extra fudgy chocolate frosting. You can’t beat these!

    My daughter and I made these last night, some donuts, some mini muffins. They turned out so good! I put mine in the refrigerator after we were done just to help keep them a little bit longer with having the banana in them and they were still good this morning. Thank you for sharing!

    So yummy! If I want to freeze half I assume I don’t glaze them right? Do you have any tips for how to freeze properly?Thanks!

    1. Hi Joselyne,
      Amazing!! So glad to hear that this recipe was enjoyed and thanks a bunch for making it! Yes, I would freeze without the glaze and make sure they are in an airtight container. xx

    1. Hi Meredith,
      I think you would have best results using a gluten free flour blend! I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any other questions! xT

    These are so delicious! I just happened to find frozen bananas in the freezer. They are husband approved!

    1. Hey Jane,
      Happy Monday!! 🍋🫐 I truly appreciate you making this recipe and your comment, love to hear that it was a hit! xT

    1. Thanks so much Bea!! I don’t think freezing this dough would be the best idea! I would suggest freezing the doughnuts and then adding the glaze once thawed. I hope this helps! xT

  5. We don’t have a doughnut tin? Any suggestions for a substitute? Gonna put it on my Amazon list tho…….

    1. Hi Katie,
      You can bake these in a muffin tin:) Let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love this recipe!xT
