Glazed Carmelized Banana Bread Donuts

 

 

After seeing these glazed carmelized banana bread donuts made on The Ultimate Recipe Showdown I decided that I wanted to give them a whirl. They were incredibly light and we loved the cinnamony deliciousness from the Hersheys Cinnamon Chips. Our little one insisted we dye the glaze purple. Banana bread is just one of those foods that always sounds so good and adding a little sprinkle of cinnamon chips and a drizzle of glaze takes them to a whole new level. Each bite is filled with a touch of sweet, a little hint of cinnamon and a nice little burst of banana. Leaving the bananas a little bit chunky is definitely a good idea, so yum! We will definitely make these again and you all should stop by Picky Palate and check them out for yourself!
