Banana Doughnuts with Peanut Butter Frosting | Baked Version

Over-ripe bananas are meant to be used in baking for us. And mostly it ends up as a gorgeous loaf of banana bread for our breakfast. Even pappu who is a picky eater loves banana bread and eats his share happily. Every week our local grocery store sells over-ripe bananas for 99 cents. Its usually atleast 2 pounds by weight and its always the organic variety. It might be squished here and there but they are just perfect for smoothies and banana bread. I never fail to grab one whenever I find them on sale.

These donuts happened when I still had some bananas from the discount sale and when I wanted to make something not banana-bready. I dipped then in peanut butter frosting to jazz them up a bit because the kid goes bonkers for stuff like these.

~*What U Need*~
Prep time: 10 mins; Baking time: 12-15 mins; Yield: 6

Banana, mashed - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Egg - 1
Yogurt - 1/4 cup
Butter - 2 tbsp, melted
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Whole wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Salt - a pinch

For the frosting:
Peanut butter - 4 tbsp
Powdered sugar - 1/4 cup or more
Milk - as needed, to thin the frosting

How I Made it:
Preheat oven to 325ยบ. Lightly grease a 6 count donut pans with cooking spray. Combine bananas, sugar, yogurt, butter and egg in a large bowl. Mix till thoroughly combined. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix dry into wet mixture and fold gently. Divide into the donut pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely. Mix everything under the frosting list until desired consistency. Dip the donuts into the frosting and set aside till the frosting is set.

Serve with a glass of milk!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
