Apple Donuts are a family favorite in our house — particularly for our nearly 4 year-old daughter.  With far fewer calories and fat than a traditional donut, Apple Donuts are packed full of fiber, protein and yes… a little chocolate sweetness as well.

INGREDIENTS:

  1. One apple (washed)
  2. Peanut butter (or nut butter of choice)
  3. Chocolate chips
  4. Oats
  5. Dried cranberries

DIRECTIONS:

Wash and dry the apple.  Cut the apple in 1/8-1/4 inch slices.  I then take a knife and carefully cut the seeds out of the center, which makes the apple start to really look like a donut.

Place a thin layer of peanut butter on top of each apple slice.

Carefully put your favorite toppings on.   Our favorites are chocolate chips, oats and dried cranberries.

Enjoy!
