  • 2 cups Gold Medal® white whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 2 cups mashed banana about 5 bananas
  • 2 tablespoons skim milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon coconut extract
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the banana, milk, and extracts to form a thick, smooth dough.
  • In a second bowl, combine the remaining sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom.
  • Pour about 1-1/2 inches of oil into the bottom of a large pot; heat to 360ºF. Working in batches so you don't overcrowd the pan, drop teaspoons full of dough into the hot oil; fry for 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oil and immediately drop into the spice mixture; toss to coat.
  • Repeat with remaining dough.


The nutritional data for these is an estimate. I measured my oil before and after drying the donuts and found that all but 1/4 cup remained, so that's the amount I used for the nutritional calculations. I had quite a bit of the sugar and spice mixture left over, but calculated the nutritional information using all of it.
