Fluffy, sweet, homemade donuts with a hint of banana and gooey chocolate chips. These protein donuts pack a punch full of flavour at only 134 calories per donut.
When it comes to overly ripe banana’s, you know then they start becoming spotty, brown/black colour, there is only one thing you can do. BAKE THEM!
Can you see my banana’s in the background of the picture above? I think this is the LEAST ripe they should be if you want to cook your banana. Even more spotty or when the peel is pretty much black is when banana is the best to cook. They will have such a STRONG FLAVOUR it is amazing. So I actually like my banana even more ripe then this, especially if I am cooking banana bread.
Yes, these donuts are baked, saving loads of heavy calories compared to when you deep fry them. To be honest they taste like super fluffy rings of banana bread. I know, you know how much I love banana bread. So if you love banana bread like, then these are a MUST bake.
When it came to glazing these beautiful sweet donuts, I kept it simple with a cream cheese frosting and added a few sprinkles for fun. My afternoon snack was a vanilla protein shake topped with my donut. SO YUM.
