Dinky Doughnuts



A lovely doughnut recipe that won’t destroy your diet. Hot and sizzling from the fryer and dusted with sugar or other delicious toppings, nothing beats a homemade doughnut.

Ours do have a little healthy twist however!

These are super simple to make too!

You will need a doughnut maker, or a deep pan for frying


  • 220g Banana (roughly 2 bananas)
  • 150g Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon (Optional) Lucuma powder (you can use coconut sugar or sweetener instead or leave out completely)
  • 25g Coconut Oil
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 200g Spelt Flour
  • 80g dark chocolate chips
  • 1teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda

Tip- want higher protein? Use 150g spelt flour and 50g protein powder (unflavoured)


  1. Mash the 2 bananas and add the Lucuma powder and coconut sugar to the mix.
  2. Use a hand blender to ensure the mix is fully combined.
  3. In another bowl crack 3 eggs, add the vanilla extract and melted coconut oil
  4. Add the egg mix to the bananas and mix
  5. In a separate bowl add the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  6. Fold in the flour mix to the wet mix. (Avoiding stirring too much)
  7. Fold in the dark chocolate chips
  8. Prepare your doughnut maker
  9. Using a teaspoon add the mix to your doughnut maker and allow to cook. Most doughnut machines have a set timer for about 3-4 mins

No doughnut maker? Heat 4-5cm/1½-2in of oil in a deep heavy-bottomed pan, or a deep-fat fryer, to 170C. Deep-fry the doughnuts, in small batches, for about 2/3 minutes or until golden-brown all over.

Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a tray lined with several layers of kitchen paper

Remove, cool and decorate with a variety of ingredients, we used melted dark chocolate and a variety of tasty toppings to finish, we tried raw cacao, coconut sugar, cacao nibs, crumbled goji berries, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and linseeds, coconut, ground almonds, just have fun experimenting!
