Light and fluffy banana bread donuts studded with melting chocolate chips topped with a creamy dark chocolate ganache. These baked donuts are so easy to make, are moist and delicious plus they are naturally vegan and easily gluten-free.

I am a bit addicted to baking homemade donuts at the moment and am really enjoying experimenting with different flavours. From my summery Rhubarb and Lemon Donuts with Cream Cheese Frosting to my Vegan Oreo Donuts and a few recipes that I have up my sleeve, I love the cakey element to baked donuts rather than fried. These Double Chocolate Banana Bread Donuts truly are cakey – they are so light and fluffy! A fusion between banana bread and donuts, these chocolatey treats are the perfect balance and make a delicious and simple bake.

You only need a few basic ingredients and two bowls for this recipe. The wet ingredients involve plant-based milk and apple cider vinegar or lemon juice which curdles to help bind the mixture. Add some mashed banana for natural sweetness, some sunflower oil, coconut sugar and vanilla essence. In a second bowl, stir together the dry ingredients which are plain flour (GF blend if necessary), baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and that’s it! Stir it all together to form a lovely batter and fold through the chocolate chunks.

To make these Double Chocolate Banana Bread Donuts you will need a donut pan – I like my silicone mould one which makes it easier to pop them out when they are cooked. Just allow the donuts to cool fully before touching them as they can be quite delicate.

The second chocolate element of these Double Chocolate Banana Bread Donuts is the chocolate glaze and I was wowed by the shine! Stir together melted chocolate, coconut oil and maple syrup until shiny and sticky. Dip the cooled donuts into the glaze and sprinkle over some chopped nuts.
