Plant-Based Recipe: Banana Donuts

By: iTi Innovation

Upgrade your breakfast line with a plant-based banana donut. Not only is this donut made with entirely plant-based ingredients, but it’s also delicious. iTi Tropical’s Innovation Team has used banana puree in place of eggs, coconut cream in place of milk products, and organic virgin coconut oil in place of butter to create a flavorful donut. The banana puree imparts a sweet, natural banana flavor while the coconut cream and oil impart a slightly more neutral flavor to balance out the banana for a well-rounded flavor. 

Check out the recipes below for the donut and coconut cream glaze!
