New donut recipe

My little boy was so sad that the donuts we bought on Saturday are all gone. (I'm not sad!) So I came up with this new recipe to make him happy. It is made with 100% whole grain oat and wheat so it makes me happy too! I bet you'll like it. They are so easy! You can find this recipe included with all of my recipes on the "Recipes" tab above. Enjoy!

Whole grain donuts
I use a Baby Cakes donut maker for these. You can also use just about any favorite (healthy) muffin recipe you like. You may need to add extra liquid in your recipe. They cook faster and are less crumbly to eat than muffins. 

1 ripe banana, mashed
1/2 c buttermilk
2 T oil
1 egg
1 c oat flour (Most of you probably have wheat grinders. Run regular or quick oats through it for oat flour. Because it can get a lot puffier when you grind it, I measured this amount by weight. 95 grams)
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/4 c sugar
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon

Combine banana, buttermilk, egg, and oil until smooth. Add dry ingredients and stir. Spray donut maker with cooking spray. Spoon about 2 T batter into each donut shape. Bake about 4-5 minutes. Makes 15 donuts. 80 calories each. (2.8g fat, 12.1g carbohydrates, 2.3g protein)
