Baked Cinnamon Apple Donuts

Fall is almost here, and these “doughnuts” are perfect to get you into the spirit. They’re baked and loaded with fiber and minerals like manganese and iron.

Bonus: they take less than 30 minutes, start to finish.

Honey is the only sweetener in these bad boys, and a solid dose of ground flaxseed gives them a really nice texture (and healthy fats). Whole wheat flour bakes can get dry, but the applesauce keeps these guys nice and fluffy. (You were worried I was going to use that “m” word just now, weren’t you?! Don’t worry, I got you.)

Make them with the glaze or without – they’re delicious either way! Each doughnut is only 200 calories but packs a punch of healthy nutrition, like more than 5 grams of fiber per serving, and more than 10% of the average daily calcium and iron need.

The recipe makes 6 baked doughnuts. Because the glaze is yogurt-based, you do need to keep the finished product in the fridge. They’ll hold up for about 3-4 days in a tightly sealed container. 

Meal-prep them for breakfast, or sneak them in as a mid-afternoon snack with that second cup of coffee (tea? What’s your poison?). Post a pic of yours on Instagram after you make them and be sure to tag @runliftrd! I can’t wait to see your favorite way to eat them.
