  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.

  2. Add all of the ingredients to your standing mixer.

  3. Mix on low until blended well.

  4. Spoon the batter into your silicone donut molds and spread until even (you want each donut mold to be about 3/4 full).

  5. Place in the oven and cook for ~20 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted inside comes out clean).

  6. Remove from the oven and let cool.

  7. Add the icing and then enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  1. This recipe yields 15 donuts.
  2. Nutritional values are estimates and do not include the icing. 
  3. You can use maple syrup instead of honey. 
  4. You can use any type of sweet red apple that you like. My favourites are Gala, Pink Lady or Honeycrisp.
