      In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, bananas, vanilla and oil. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined; fill each doughnut cup about three-quarters full. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely in the pans set on a wire rack.
