  • Donut Pan (if making donuts)
  • Muffin Pan (if making muffins)
  • Muffins Liners (or cooking spray)



  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Spray donut pan / muffin pan with cooking spray (or use muffin liners in muffin pan)
  • Make flax eggs by stirring 2 tbsp ground flax into 5 tbsp water. Let it sit for at least 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl beat the bananas, 1 tbsp vegetable oil, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and flax eggs.
  • In a separate medium bowl whisk together these dry ingredients: 1 & 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cups wheat flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, and 1 tsp cinnamon.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the large bowl, and stir with a wooden spoon until combined well. Try not to over-mix too much. The batter should be pretty thick.

Making donuts or muffins? or both?!

  • We made donuts first, and then with the remaining batter we made muffins. The batter was enough for us to make 6 donuts and 8 muffins.
  • If making donuts, then spoon the batter into the donut pan, about 2/3 full. Keep in mind the donuts will likely double in size.
    Cook the donuts for 9 minutes at 425 degrees. After they finish, let them cool in their donut pan for 5 minutes, then dump them into a cooling rack to cool more.
  • If making muffins spoon the batter into the muffin pan, about 2/3 of the way full. Top them with a few non-dairy chocolate chips if you like!
    Cook the muffins at 425 degrees for 11 minutes. Let them cool in their pan for a couple of minutes before taking them out to cool more on a cooling rack.
