These chocolate-glazed banana bread donuts are the moistest, cakiest treats we’ve ever tried.

It all starts with a simple banana bread-esque batter, with mashed bananas, almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, and eggs to make it fluffy plus a few other quick ingredients.

These donuts are completely clean eating-friendly. They’re sweetened by the mashed, overripe bananas and just a little bit of maple syrup. Bananas also give the donuts their characteristic flavor, they’re an excellent source of potassium, fiber, and manganese, and they replenish electrolytes—making these the perfect post-gym treat.

Almond flour is gluten-free, high fiber and high protein, while coconut oil is heart-healthy thanks to its high natural saturated fat content. It’s also easily digested, not readily stored as fat and immediately energizing.

Next, we top our donuts with the easiest dark chocolate glaze ever. Simply melt together a bit of dark chocolate and coconut oil and you’ll have an endlessly smooth glaze to dip your donuts in. Eat them immediately post-dipping for melted dark chocolate goodness, or let them cool and enjoy a firmer, solidified chocolate coating.

These donuts take only 30 minutes to make (unless you count banana ripening time—sorry, we can’t help you there!). The only special equipment required is a standard donut pan and a plastic bag with the tip cut off. Note: We pipe the donuts into the pan since it’s the easiest way to uniformly fill a donut pan with minimal mess.

While they’re the perfect treats for any day of the week, these donuts are especially nice to share with your family on a weekend morning for a special breakfast. They’re best enjoyed the day they’re made, but can be stored in the fridge for up to three days.
