- Mix the flour, oat bran, sugar, baking soda, spices, and walnuts in a large bowl to incorporate the ingredients.
- Add the banana/milk mixture to the flour, stir to combine.
- Using a pastry brush, oil the inside of the donut baking pan.
- Fill the donut molds ¾ of the way full.
- Bake for 12 minutes.
- Allow the donuts to rest for 5 minutes before removing the donuts from the molds, place them on a cooling rack.
- The donuts must be cool before you glaze them with the chocolate ganache.
Glazing the donuts
- Dunking the donuts into the chocolate ganache is the best, it's fun and there is nothing better than a chocolate glazed donut. You can of course drizzle the glaze on top of the donut in any style that you like.
- It's best to store the donuts in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 7 days. You can also freeze the donuts.
