My kiddos love when I make donuts for breakfast! We don't have them very often, making them a real treat we do! I wanted to think outside of the box a bit for this particular recipe. Being inspired by the King of Rock n' Roll, these donuts are full of banana, peanut butter, chocolate and bacon!

Yield: (12-15 donuts)

    For the donuts:
    • 1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 tsp. baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 eggs, at room temperature
    • 4 medium bananas, mashed
    • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    For the chocolate glaze:
    • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
    • 4 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 3 tbsp. milk
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
    For the topping:
    • 1 cup peanut butter chips
    • 4-6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled


    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease 2 non-stick (6 count) donut pans and set aside.

    2. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and sugar) for the donuts. In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (eggs, bananas, vanilla and oil) for the donuts. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, just until moistened. Spoon the batter into the prepared pans. 

    3. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.

    4. Prepare the chocolate glaze by mixing all of the chocolate glaze ingredients in a small, short bowl. Melt the peanut butter chips in a microwave safe dish in 15 second increments, stirring between each session, until completely melted. Remove the donuts from the pan and dip one side into the glaze. Place on a wire rack, glaze side up. Drizzle with the melted peanut butter chips and top with bacon.

    P.S. If you don't have a donut pan - or if you just prefer muffins, you can still make these Elvis Donuts! :)
