Banana Nut Bread Donuts with Crumb Topping

Since I HAD to use up these….

and since I REALLY wanted to make these Apple Cinnamon Baked Donuts

AND this Low-Fat Banana Nut Bread

AND was DROOLING over these Banana Crumb Muffins (thanks Leah!!)


I decided to compromise.

Baked Banana Nut Bread Donuts with Crumb Topping were born….and devoured.

Baked Banana Nut Bread Donuts with Crumb Topping

Makes 12 donuts.

1 1/4 c. All-Purpose Flour
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp canola oil
1 large egg, beaten
2 medium egg whites, beaten
4 medium overripe bananas
1 c. uncooked Old Fashioned Oats
1/3 c. chopped walnuts

Crumb Topping (Optional…but SO worth it!)

  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 T flour
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 T butter

Preheat the oven 350 degrees and spray 1 donut pan with cooking spray. Combine all dry ingredients including the oats and cinnamon. Mash bananas in a separate bowl, adding the oil and 1 whole egg. Mix thoroughly. Add the wet ingredients into the dry flour mixture. Mix well, forms a thick batter. With a hand mixer, beat the egg whites until medium stiff peaks form. Fold the whites into the batter in three separate additions. Fold in chopped walnuts last. Pour into prepared donut pan (~1/4 c. of batter). Now, make the topping. Combine the sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in cold butter until a crumbly consistency is formed. Sprinkle generously over the top of each donut. Bake 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes and then flip out onto a wire rack.
