"Skinny" Baked Banana Protein Donuts

This has to be one of my favorite recipes thus far, even my hubby loved it and was asking for more!  I have definitely been on a doughnut kick lately, having recently made the Skinny Baked Chocolate Donuts but I have to admit this recipe one ups it.  These donuts are so moist and BEST fresh out of the oven.  I topped mine with Nutella and that hit the spot!  You won't believe these are "skinny" after the first bite. Let us all make this tomorrow, June 1st in honor of "National Doughnut Day"!

1 3/4 cup oats
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 scoop protein powder
2 bananas
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup agave sweetner
optional: nutella (to spread on top)
1.  Preheat oven at 375 degrees and spray doughnut pan with non stick spray.
2. Blend all ingredients well and fill pan with batter.
3. Bake  for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.  Stick with toothpick before removing from oven to ensure the donuts are cooked thoroughly.

Happy Guilt-free eating!!


  1. Mmmm! I've never made my own donuts but these sound like a great one to start with! The nutella on top sounds delicious but don't know if you can say it's healthy with nutella LOL.

    1. LOL! Oh yes, I don't want to get sued for that! Well in all fairness I DID put the nutella as "optional." :)

    1. I am sure they will! Even my hubby, who is anti anything on the healthy side, loved them!

  3. Can you post the size of the protein scoop and what kind and also the nutrients? Thank you

  4. It's not often that you see the phrases "donuts" and "healthy" used in the same sentence! Yum, I've gotta try this recipe! Thanks for sharing!
