Chunky Monkey was my favorite Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor. I loved the creaminess of the banana ice cream and the surprise and bite of nuts and chocolate. Here's my version of that ice cream reinvented as a doughnut with mashed bananas, chocolate glaze, toasted walnuts, and shaved chocolate. Enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist
Chocolate Glaze:


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C); place rack in middle of oven. Lightly oil two doughnut pans.

  • Combine coconut milk and vinegar in bowl; set aside. (Mixture will appear clumpy like buttermilk.)

  • Stir together the bananas and vanilla in a separate bowl.

  • Sift together the white and wheat flours, baking soda, sea salt, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large bowl. Whisk dry ingredients again in the bowl.

  • Pour coconut milk mixture into banana mixture; combine thoroughly. Add coconut oil and mix again. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients. Mix just until combined; do not over mix.

  • Quickly portion batter into doughnut pans; try to keep the surface level.

  • Bake 26 minutes.

  • Let doughnuts cool in the pan for 5 minutes on a wire rack. Then carefully remove them by flipping them out of the pans onto the rack; cool completely before glazing.

  • For glaze, sift confectioners' sugar and cocoa into a small bowl. Stir in milk and vanilla for a thick but easy to drizzle consistency.

  • Hold doughnut over the glaze, and with a spoon drizzle glaze back and forth over the surface. Sprinkle with toppings after each doughnut is glazed so toppings will stick.

Cook's Notes:

Instead of chocolate sprinkles, I used organic fair trade 72% chocolate bar and shaved it with peeler directly on the donut.

To toast walnuts, spread chopped nuts onto an ungreased baking sheet and toast in 350 degree F oven for about 6 minutes.
