Spicy Banana Donut Holes

Spicy Banana Donut Holes

I used to think that donut holes resulted from a donut missing its middle. In reality, it sort of is, as they usually make donut holes from the left over dough of donuts. This recipe has a kick to it, without being too overpowering.You can use regular milk instead of coconut milk, but I like the hint of coconut flavor, and I find it makes the donuts nice and moist.
