These Healthy Banana Doughnuts are so moist, flavorful, and yummy. Think chocolate banana bread, but in doughnut form! The perfect snack or breakfast. They also happen to be gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free!



For Doughnuts:

  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed (about ⅔ cups)
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil or grass-fed butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 11/4 cup (125 grams) almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons (14 grams) coconut flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

For Chocolate Glaze:

  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease a 6 hole doughnut pan.
  2. Whisk together mashed bananas, coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla in a large bowl. Add in the almond flour, coconut flour, salt and baking powder and mix together until fully combined.
  3. Place batter inside of a pastry bag, or a ziploc bag with small hole cut out of the corner of it, and pipe the batter about ¾ of the way up the doughnut pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the donuts from the pan and let them cool completely on a baking rack. 
  5. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together over a double boiler or using your preferred method.
  6. Carefully dip doughnuts into the melted chocolate, and set back on the cooling rack to set.
  7. Doughnuts will keep for 3 days, covered in the refrigerator or up to 1 day at room temperature, covered.


For fully dairy-free, make sure to use coconut oil and chocolate chips that do not contain any dairy (such as Enjoy Life)
