Banana Cinnamon & Sugar Doughnuts

Gluten-Free Egg-Free Banana Cinnamon Doughnuts
These cute little clouds are soft chewy banana cinnamon & sugar doughnuts. While my favorites are still the mini Boulder creams, these are Zoe’s favorite, so I thought I would share them too.

They’re made with coconut flour and no eggs or starch—something I thought couldn’t be done.

I used a combination of mashed bananas and psyllium husk powder. Psyllium husk powder comes from the fiber which covers the seed. I don’t know how to get this stretchy texture with eggs, but feel free to experiment yourself.

Banana Cinnamon & Sugar Doughnuts

grain-free, starch-free, egg-free


2 ripe mashed bananas (about 2/3 cup)
3/4 cup cashew milk (see my video)
2 tbsp honey
1/4 cup liquid Earth Balance Buttery Spread, soy-free (or oil of choice)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp vanilla stevia
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp psyllium husk powder Note: I like to add the psyllium husk powder last, just before blending
1/2 cup coconut flour


  1. Add all ingredients except for the coconut flour to a blender or food processor.
  2. Puree. Pour into mixing bowl.
  3. Add the coconut flour to the bowl (sifted to prevent clumps in the dough).
  4. Mix with electric mixer. Line a cookie sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
  5. Use a large ice cream scoop with a lever to get the dough. Pack it in and level it off. OR divide the dough into 8 balls if you don’t have a large ice cream scoop with a lever.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes. Cool for five minutes.
  7. Dip in melted Earth Balance Buttery Spread (or coconut oil) then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Cinnamon & Sugar topping

In Magic Bullet or coffee grinder puree 1 tbsp coconut sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon.

    I will be making those today! We don’t have to eat GF here, but we are sensitive to dairy and my son can’t have processed sugar. I love how your recipes never have processed sugar, as it’s the one ingredient we always NEED to avoid and your food always looks so good! Thanks for sharing :)

    any idea on how they’d come out without the psyllium?? im not sure if i have an allergy or not (i know i’m not good with seeds and can’t do flax or chia for that reason) thanks!

    Yummy! I made these this morning and used 3 Tablespoons ground chia seed and they turned out great! Not as pretty as the photo though cuz I didn’t have a scoop ; ) I made a glaze out of coconut oil and honey and used that on top with some sprinkles

    Hi Kelly – I’ve used many of your recipes with great success, but this is the first time I’ve commented. I made the doughnuts this morning, and unfortunately, they didn’t work for me. I’m sure it was something wrong on my end, and I want to try them again, so I’m hoping you can help me diagnose the problem. The only thing I did differently is sub coconut milk (full-fat, canned) for the cashew milk, since I’m allergic to cashews. Could this be the problem? They looked beautiful on the outside, just like your photo, but the insides never cooked through, even after 15 minutes of additional baking. I’m also wondering if my psyllium powder is the same as psyllium husk powder…I bought it at the co-op, and it was only labeled as ‘psyllium powder”. Regardless, I hovered around my cooled doughnuts and peeled off all the tops, dipping them into the glaze, and stuffing them into my mouth! Those little bites were delicious, and I can’t wait Try them again!!

    I made them today. They were good, but just tasted like banana bread in ball form. They tasted yummy enough, but I don’t think I would make them again. It’s a good alternative though, if you want banana bread but don’t have eggs.

    Great post! sounds very delicious. I love your recipe for this making yummy Banana Cinnamon & Sugar Doughnuts. All I can say AMAZING! Thanks for sharing this info!

    I love your recipes, but honey is too much sugar for me. The only sweeteners I can eat are stevia, and sweet fruit like bananas. Not even dates or figs or raisins, no agave…nothing like that. Would love to see more sugar free recipes

    I love your recipes, but this one didn’t work for us. The texture was a little too doughy and the y were a little bland for me. But I love your other doughnut recipes!!

    Hi kelly, so glad to discover your blog, I am an aussie with a 9yr old son who has ADHD. Thanks to an awesome naturopath we follow a wheat free casein free diet with fantastic success. I try to bake everything he eats to avoid processed foods & additives, your recipes are going to be my saviour as monotony has set in!!!

    THIS TEXTURE!!!! It’s incredible! The taste is okay, like a subtle banana bread, but the TEXTURE… it’s like real bread! With a bit of experimentation I think it could easily become a miracle gluten free sandwich bread! Thanks so much for the recipe!

    Do you have any idea of a replacement for the banana in this? Do you think applesauce would possibly work? I really want to make these for my son for Christmas but he can’t have banana because of the sugar. He has eczema reacting to candida growth.

    Any idea how this would be without the banana? Is there a replacement like applesauce?? My son can’t have banana (eczema/candida) but I’d love to make this for Christmas

    Hi! If I don’t have psyllium husks is there something I can use in it’s place, or could I omit it all together?

    Thank you for this recipe!! I am allergic to eggs and dairy, and they seem to be in so many things. I’m also allergic to almonds, so having cashews in this really made my day!!!

    Note: Make sure you measure your banana because if there is too much, they will NEVER cook.

    I left out the nutmeg on my second try because that was all I could taste the first time I made these and I thought they were a bit gross with nutmeg overpowering the taste of anything else. This time I added some dairy free chocolate chips…and they were so good!!!

    I can’t wait to try these!! I made the Boulder Cream Donuts this morning and they were SOOO good!!

    I made just a bit ago and I forgot to add the cashew milk- however my bananas were frozen. They turned out really good with the exception the insides were sort of jelly like- reminded me of eating a sort of candy! I used a mini muffin tin and they seemed to turn out fine as well. I’m going to made another batch tonight -the right way. Thanks for the recipe!
