Apple Cinnamon Glazed Donuts » Simple and Healthy Recipe! ✅

The crunchy cinnamon sugar on top makes them cook. Apple Cinnamon Glazed Donuts a sweet surprise for breakfast. Twice the goodness of apples keeps this apple donut recipe soft for days.

Now that it’s mid-September, I’m in full fall mode. The problem is that fall doesn’t hit Florida until at least November. So what’s a girl to do?

So far, I’ve pulled out all the fall decor, kept the air conditioner running at 72 degrees, and started baking with apples.

And as I write this, I have a pot of homemade apple butter bubbling on our stove and the kitchen smells absolutely amazing.

I bought another bag of apples the other day because I was craving a slice of this Caramelized Apple Donut Cake. Since there were still a few more apples left in the fridge, I was also about to make another batch of these apple pancake donuts.

But at the last second I changed my mind and made it easy baked apple donuts instead. These fall donuts feature lots of grated apples, apple cider, and Greek yogurt. This makes them totally healthy, right?

Okay, maybe I just like to pretend that adding fruit to things makes them a healthy breakfast. My husband rolls his eyes every time he suggests it.

Do you want more apple donuts? These Apple Praline Donuts and Caramel Apple Pie Donuts are just a few of our favorites.

How to make Apple Cinnamon Glazed Donuts:

Cream: Cream together the softened butter and sugar, then add the other wet ingredients.

Shake off: Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.

To add: Alternatively, add the apple cider and flour mixture to the butter ingredients.

Tear: Use a food processor to quickly chop the apples. Gently incorporate them into the dough.

Fill: Place donut dough in a large zip lock bag and cut off one corner. Half fill a greased donut pan and bake.

Nail polish: Dip tops of baked apple donuts in apple cider glaze and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and serve immediately.

Trade: Once the glaze has solidified, place the donuts in an airtight container. These donuts are truly the best the day they are made. The glaze will start to seep into the donuts the longer they sit in a covered container.

PROFESSIONAL TIP: If you are making these donuts ahead of time, add the glaze the day you serve them.
