Oven Baked Apple Donuts

I found this recipe in a cookbook I have and “adjusted” it to our liking…making it a little bit more health (at least as healthy as donuts can be!).  My family absolutely LOVED these!  They were so easy to throw together too.  Enjoy!


3 cups flour (I use hard white wheat freshly ground)
1 cup sugar (organic or Sucanat if you have it)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ cup olive oil
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 cups cored and finely diced apples

½ cup butter, melted
1 ½ cups sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 12-cup muffin tins (I use silicone pans so I don’t have to grease them at all!)

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Set aside.

In a small bowl combine oil, eggs, milk, and apples. Add to flour mixture and mix just until everything is moistened and mixed up.

Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling about 3/4ths full.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

While muffins are baking, prepare topping. Melt butter. Then combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. When muffins are done baking, dip in melted butter, then in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on a serving tray to serve. Yummy!

Yield: 24 muffins

  1. Hi Sheri, I don't suppose you've tried adjusting them to be THM friendly, right? They sound wonderful, but can't have them as written. Thanks! Cheryl
  2. I can't wait to try these. They look really good. I like your new look. Your site has always been pretty easy for me to get around, but I look forward to exploring your new changes.
