I found another use for apple cider syrup – Donuts. When these are baking in the oven the house smells like fall: apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, mmm. These donuts are loaded with apple flavor. There are grated apples, apple cider syrup and applesauce. Well, if you are going to have apple in a donut you might as well go for all the apple you can get.
- 5 large eggs
- 1/2 c almond milk
- 1/2 c apple, grated, fresh
- 1/2 c apple cider syrup
- 1/4 c melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 c almond flour
- 1/2 c coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 c unsweetened cinnamon applesauce
Apple Cider Syrup
- 2 c apple cider
In a medium saucepan boil apple cider on high heat. Stir occasionally. Reduce cider to 1/2 cup. Remove from heat and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease donut pan.
Place eggs, almond milk, apple cider syrup, melted butter and vanilla in food processor. Blend until well combined.
In a medium bowl sift together almond meal, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and sea salt. Add sifted ingredients to food processor and blend until well combined. Fold in grated apples
I found piping the donut batter into the donut pan works the best and is much faster than spooning the batter into the pan. You can use a piping bag or just a gallon size ziplock bag with a corner of the bag snipped to make a hole for piping. Pipe batter into donut pan.
For best results put donut pan (if using silicone) onto sheet pan. It makes it easier to place and remove from oven.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from donut pan. Brush donuts with applesauce. Share. Eat. Enjoy.
Note: You could add a little crunch by dipping the donuts into some crushed dehydrated apples.
