Yields about 1 dozen donuts


Banana cream pie donut holes

For the donut holes:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the filling:

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3-4 tablespoons sugar

For the coating:

  • About 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, milk, applesauce, egg, smashed banana and honey together. Fill the mini muffin tin about 2/3 the way full.
  3. Mix the graham cracker crumbs and cinnamon together. Bake for about 9 minutes or until golden brown. While donut holes are still warm, roll in the graham cracker crumbs until liberally coated.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the whipping cream and sugar together until stiff peaks form.
  5. Once donuts have cooled, cut out a small little hole in the bottom, keeping the cone of batter. Pipe whipped cream into the center and cover with the saved flute.
