Ingredients

Donuts:

  • 2 medium ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup brewed espresso
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Glaze:

  • 2 tablespoons brewed espresso
  • 2 tablespoons half-and-half cream
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease two 6-cup donut pans. Set aside.
  • Make the donuts: In a large bowl, whisk mashed banana, oil, sugar, yogurt, espresso, milk, egg, and vanilla extract until smooth. Gradually fold in flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt until batter is smooth.
  • Fill prepared donut pans 3/4 full of batter and smooth tops. Bake donuts at 350F 14-15 minutes or until donuts spring back when lightly touched. Cool donuts in pan 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
  • Make the glaze: In a small saucepan, bring espresso, cream, and agave to a low simmer. Place chocolate chips in a small bowl, then pour hot cream mixture over top. Gently whisk chocolate until melted and glaze is completely smooth. Whisk in vanilla extract.
  • Dip cooled donuts into glaze and place on wire cooling rack to set. Enjoy!
