Maple Glazed Banana Donuts

Yesterday, GF Guy and I were invited over to a friends’ house to watch the Super Bowl.

I wanted to bring something homemade. When GF Guy told me donuts were our hosts FAVORITE thing, there was no question what I would be baking. Coincidentally, my donut pan is my favorite thing! I made my Chocolate Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze and a completely new recipe. Judging by the rate at which these disappeared off the plate, I would say they were a success!
Maple Glazed Banana Donuts
(Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)


  • 2 over-ripe Bananas, mashed
  • 1 large Egg, beaten
  • 3 Tbsp Unsweetened, Plain Almond Milk (4 Tbsp if at a high altitude)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (375 degrees for high altitude), and spray a donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the banana, egg, almond milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and oil.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until smooth.
  4. Scoop 2 heaping Tbsp of batter for each donut. Dampen your fingers to smooth donuts evenly in the pan.
  5. Bake 7-9 minutes, then cool 5 minutes in the pan before transferring to a cooling rack.
  6. Cool completely before dipping in glaze (recipe below)
