And, welcome to the week of doughnuts over here on The Corner Kitchen.  I usually don’t post two similar recipes in the same week, but I was so excited about these Banana Bread Doughnuts that I just couldn’t wait to share them with you!


Baked Banana Bread Doughnuts


Eating healthy is a huge priority to me, but as I’ve mentioned many, many times, I also have a huge sweet tooth that does not like to be ignored.  Cutting out sweets isn’t an option for me; it’s just not a choice I’m willing to make.  Instead, I believe in moderation, balance and smart choices.

So, my smart choice for the week….baked banana bread doughnuts!

I just haven’t been able to get enough of my doughnut pan lately, and when I spotted a pile of over-ripe bananas in the back of the fridge, I knew what had to happen.  Banana bread doughnuts!  But again, it’s all about balance, so I  cut out the processed sugar, white flour and significantly cut the fat, while keeping the great banana bread flavors we all know and love.  These soft, walnut-studded rings are made with whole wheat flour, naturally sweetened and baked to perfection.

Head over to Greatist to get my recipe for Baked Banana Bread Doughnuts!

Hi Kelli,

I need to use my Bundt pan. What’s the oven
time and temp for your baked banana bread

thanks and happy holiday!

The oven temp is 325. I know the recipe on Greatist mentions using a bundt as an alternative to a doughnut pan, however I have not personally used this method, so I can’t give you an exact cook time. If you’re using a large bundt pan I recommend baking for 30 minutes to start. Use a toothpick or skewer, and insert in the cake to check then doneness – when it’s cook through no crumbs will stick to the toothpick. If it’s not done, continue to cook and check on it every 5 minutes or so.

I hope that was helpful!
