Apple Cinnamon Oat Donuts

A few things that scream fall to me: apples, cinnamon, and donuts. The crisp air and leaves on the ground inspired me to make a HEALTHY apple cinnamon oat donut! How do you make a healthy donut you ask?? With THESE ingredients:


For the dough:

  • Kodiak Cakes Flapjack Mix, the Cinnamon Oat flavor

  • Apple sauce, unsweetened

  • Fresh grated apple chunks

For the powdered topping:

  • Coconut oil spray

  • Coconut sugar

  • Cinnamon

And you guys, this recipe is seriously easy as apple pie. This is all you gotta do:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prep a donut pan with cooking spray. Then, mix together the Kodiak Cakes mix and apple sauce like so:

It takes a bit of work to really mix it together. Like it'll be at this stage:

But don't give up on it! Keep workin it until it's more like this:

Then, take a fresh apple (I used Gala, but use your favorite type to bake with) and grate it up until you have your desired amount. I got about 1/3 cup's worth.

Then dump it in with your dough and mix it up.

Then pull out pieces of dough and squish them into your donut pan:

And bake for 10 minutes. While they're baking, mix together your coconut sugar and cinnamon.

Once the 10 minutes is up, make sure your donuts are done but putting a toothpick or fork in and making sure it comes out clean.

When they're all done, spray them with coconut oil spray, and dip them in your cinnamon sugar mixture. Cover them thoroughly, and sprinkle more on with a spoon just to make sure you've got the donut all covered.

Go ahead and break out the cider or hot cocoa and grab yourself a donut!!
