  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly mist a donut pan with non-stick spray.

  3. Place the banana, Greek yogurt, egg, and vanilla in a mini-chopper, food processor, or blender, and puree.
  4. Combine the whole wheat flour, cake flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  5. Add the brown butter and half the banana mixture, and stir on low speed for about a minute.

  6. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula, and add the remaining banana mixture. Stir for a minute more, or until the ingredients are well incorporated.

  7. Pipe or spoon the batter into the prepared pan, and bake for 15 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
  8. Cool completely, then spread about a tablespoon of Nutella® on each donut. Sprinkle with rainbow jimmies and serve.
