Baked banana chocolate chip donuts

Donuts are delicious but the calories can add up quickly. These baked banana donuts are sweet on flavor, and since they are baked, they have fewer calories than their fried cousins. We also added some sweet cinnamon and dark chocolate chunks to the donuts to create the perfect breakfast or dessert treat.
