How To Make The Perfect Donut Hole

The key to these donut holes is using a mini muffin tin and not scooping too much batter into the tin.

I recommend only adding 1 Tbsp of dough in each mini muffin tin portion. Otherwise, your donut holes will be less like donut holes and more like a large cinnamon sugar baseball…but a tasty one at that!

To make the perfect cinnamon sugar coating don’t skimp on the butter! Coating the melted butter in the baked donut holes is key to making the cinnamon sugar mixture stick.

Mixing The Cinnamon Sugar Coating

I recommend adding about 1-2 Tbsp of cinnamon to the 3/4 cup of sugar in a small bowl. For more of a sugary-flavor and less of a cinnamon flavor I would recommend only adding 1 tbsp of cinnamon.

  • 1 scoop collagen
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Cinnamon sugar coating

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 5 tbsp butter melted 
  • 2 TBSP cinnamon


  1. Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray and preheat the oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl combine the egg, melted butter, greek yogurt, mashed banana, collagen peptides, vanilla extract, brown sugar, and cane sugar. Get out as many lumps as you can. A few will be in there from the banana and that is A ok!
  3. Add the self-rising flour and baking soda in a separate medium-sized bowl and mix until combined. 
  4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until everything is combined.
  5. Using a tablespoon, spoon the batter into the mini muffin tin.

  8. Take out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  9. Role the donut hole in the butter using a fork to coat it. Be sure to tap out the extra butter by scooping the donut hole with a fork and letting the excess butter drip over the melted butter bowl.
  10. Then, coat the banana donut hole in the cinnamon sugar mixture and set aside.
  11. Repeat until all of the banana donut holes are coated and enjoy!
  12. Store these in a container for a max of 2 days! (if they last that long)
