Vegan Banana Chocolate Donuts

Author - Alyssa Rimmer

These vegan banana chocolate donuts are made entirely in the blender for a super fluffy texture and easy cleanup! Also gluten-free and high in protein!

We're making donuts! In the blender. Without any junk. And they are so SO good!

I had a totally different post and video planned for today (one that was focused on spirulina), but the thought of eating a bunch of recipes with blue-green algae just wasn't sitting well. So we went in the complete opposite direction and made donuts instead!

Because #balance, right?

But these aren't your typical chocolate donut. Oh no, these are soft, fluffy, perfectly sweetened vegan banana chocolate donuts made with 100% pure and healthy ingredients!

The base is a blend of oats, almond flour and cacao powder, which, since it's blended up into a batter, becomes completely smooth and fluffy. I still haven't figured out what it is about oat flour that makes baked goods so amazing, but it's by far one of my favorites. I use it mostly in my quinoa muffin recipes (have you tried the Skinny Banana Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins yet?!), but now that I've seen it do its magic with donuts? You know I'm going to be testing all sorts of things for you!

For the wet ingredients, we're using almond milk, almond oil (because it has a very mellow flavor), banana and peanut butter. You honestly can never go wrong with the chocolate, banana and PB combo!

We're using the banana as our egg replacer, and unfortunately for those of you sensitive, I'm really not sure there's a replacement. I tested these with a flax egg and they just weren't as tasty. The banana not only helps make them moist and tender but it also gives a little extra sweetness and an underlying banana flavor.

If you must swap it out for allergy reasons, my suggestion would be another fruit puree like apple so you still get some sweet undertones!

If you've yet to hop on the donut train, OR you just haven't had a donut in ages because you didn't think it was possible to have a healthy donut, you're in luck. These little pillows of chocolate-y goodness will light up your dessert world and make all your vegan donut dreams come true.

Plus, how can we say no to a baked good that is made in a blender? Literally, we just throw it all in, put it in the pan, then sit back and wait for the timer to go off. Donuts-made-easy!

  1. I am a dessert lover. I will try making this banana chocolate doughnut, but people also crazy for waffles, so sharing the recipe Banana Chocolate Waffle with same ingredients banana and chocolate.

  2. I can’t find almond oil. What is a good substitute?
    I love your recipes. I have made a dozen or more in just the last 6 months.

  3. No way–donuts that are baked, high in protein, healthy, AND vegan?? Sign me up girl! I would totally love to have these for a nutritious breakfast. What an amazing video as well!!
