Banana Donuts with Chocolate Glaze

Banana Donuts with Chocolate Glaze | Homan at Home

What do you do when there are overripe bananas in your kitchen? Make banana donuts of course! This is one of my son’s favorite things to make. He absolutely loves anything to do with bananas, he loves donuts, and he loves dipping things in chocolate. So pretty much, this is his dream recipe. 

And it’s a pretty dreamy recipe, even if you’re not 2 and banana-obsessed. The donut base is sweet and moist. It’s good enough to stand on its own without the glaze – when Alex isn’t looking I sometimes just eat them with a dusting of powdered sugar.

But the glaze really does take this to another level. It’s a semi-sweet taste, and the flavor compliments the sweet banana of the base perfectly. It tastes pretty good off of a spoon, too (not that I’ve been sitting around eating chocolate glaze by the spoonful. No siree!).
