Banana Donut-Muffins (vegan, gluten-free, no-sugar added, oil-free)

Banana.  I love it anyway I can get it.  Straight up banana, banana bread, banana non-dairy ice cream, banana sandwich (with a little peanut butter, of course), or these delicious super healthy donut-muffins I made the other day.  Shaped like a donut, with the dense texture of a muffin, these are little cuties really are tasty.  Thanks to Chef AJ for the original recipe and Healthy Girl’s Kitchen for tweaking them a bit and posting the recipe here:

The only change I made was I added 1/2 tsp nutmeg.  These healthy treats have zero added sugar – they are sweetened naturally by the bananas, apple sauce and apple juice.  They aren’t super sweet, which is partly why I like them.  While I still have a sweet tooth, thankfully it takes very little to satisfy it since I changed my evil eating ways.  It’s confirmation that I really was a sugaraholic before.

I used a combination of my one donut pan (makes 6), and 6 muffins. I cooked them for 22 minutes, but the muffins, which are a little taller than the donuts, could have used another minute or 2 in the oven.  The recipe doesnt specify banana size.  My bananas were ginormous so I only used 3.  So, I’m assuming using 4 average sized bananas would work perfectly.
