Banana & Chocolate Chip Baked Doughnuts – Soft, light and airy. Delicious banana and chocolate doughnuts, with an added Nutella topping!
Banana Moon invited me to create a Valentines themed banana bake for their banana bake book – an online guide for sharing lots of other banana recipes! All recipes, photos and views are my own.
Say hello to my new favourite doughnut recipe! I always seem to post doughnut recipes with a theme or in someway related to Nutella – probably says something about my love for themed bakes and chocolate spread, but hey ho there’s definitely no denying my love for all doughnuts! Baked doughnuts are so versatile, you can pretty much add what you like, flavour them to your tastes, and they will always be super delicious.
Unlike the traditional doughnuts these are made without frying them in oil which totally makes them healthier right? Plus, these doughnuts have real banana and healthy natural yoghurt in them – in my world that 100% means they’re good for me! 😉
These baked doughnuts are easy to make and the banana flavour really comes through in perfect partnership with the chocolate chips – so light, airy and fluffy they are my new favourite recipe! They really don’t take long to bake as well, under 10 minutes in the oven and you’ll have fresh banana doughnuts to enjoy – what could be better?
When I was thinking about what to top the doughnuts with only one thing came to mind – Nutella. With Valentines coming up Nutella + doughnuts are the best combo to bake with for someone special. I did really want to make heart shaped doughnuts but sadly my doughnut pan hasn’t arrived from America – why oh why do they not sell them in the UK? …anyhow I made delicious classic round doughnuts instead and they were awesome!

1tsp baking powder
70g light brown sugar
