I haven't tried these yet either. They seem like they would be nice to make and freeze some for later.
Baked Banana Doughnuts
From Favorite Brand Name's Light Cooking
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 egg whites
1 Tbsp vegetable oil (I'd use canola)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup whole wheat flour (I'd use another 3/4 cup of all-purpose)
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 Tbsp chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Spray sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Beat bananas, egg whites, oil and brown sugar in large bowl or food processor. Add flours, baking powder, baking soda and pumpkin pie spice. Mix until well blended. Let stand for five minutes for dough to rise.
Scoop out heaping tablespoonfuls of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Using thin rubber spatula or butter knife, round out doughnut hole in center of dough (if dough sticks to knife or spatula, spray with cooking spray). With spatula, smooth outside edges of dough into round doughnut shape. Repeat until all dough is used. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and walnuts, if desired.
Bake 6-10 minutes or until tops are golden.
Makes about 22 doughnuts.
Variation: Use 8 oz solid pack pumpkin instead of bananas to make pumpkin doughnuts.
