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.


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


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.
