Banana and spinach doughnuts (V)


Doughnut worry, we've got you covered for Halloween treats - but the question is, are these frightful or delightful?


  • 110g Co-op self raising flour
  • 50g Co-op British spinach
  • 1 Co-op Fairtrade banana, chopped
  • 50ml Co-op semi-skimmed milk
  • 50ml Co-op vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp Co-op clear honey
  • 1 large Co-op British free range egg
  • FOR THE ICING - Juice of ½ lemon - 2 tbsp Fairtrade icing sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/Gas 4
  2. Put the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre
  3. Whizz the spinach, banana, milk and vegetable oil together in a food processor
  4. Add the honey and egg, then blend briefly again
  5. Pour the mixture into the well in the flour, mix together, then spoon into a piping bag
  6. Pipe into a 6-hole doughnut tin
  7. Bake for 10-15 mins, until risen and cooked through
  8. Leave the doughnuts to cool in the tin for 5 mins, then turn out and leave to cool completely
  9. Once cool, make the icing by adding the lemon juice to the icing sugar, little by little, until you have a thick but pourable icing
  10. Drizzle over the doughnuts to serve
