Doughnut Apples

Juicy apple slices with delicious sweet toppings just like doughnuts!


No these aren't the doughnuts you might have been thinking of, sorry to burst your bubble! But I came across the idea and thought I'd give it a go myself and I loved it. These little doughnut apples are a perfect snack, dessert or even great for a light breakfast. I think the best part about them is geting to add different toppings which keeps it interesting and still feels like you're having something sweet. Unless you actually want a doughnut for breakfast then be my guest but this recipe might confuse you! I've topped mine with a variety of spreads, some chopped fruit and healthier sprinkle suggestions like granola, seeds or cacao nibs which add a nice crunch. They are really easy to put together in no time at all, and are perfect for a lunch box addition :)

Recipe:

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: N/A
Serves: 10 apple slices

Ingredients

2 Pink lady apples
Small bowl of water
A little squeeze of lemon juice or ACV
Toppings
Peanut butter
Raspberry jam
Chocolate hazelnut spread - mine was homemade to make it vegan
Soya yoghurt
Fruit
Granola
Cacao nibs
Mixed seeds


Method

✿Core the apples and slice them from top to bottom into about 5 slices on each apple, then take out a little circle from the middle of each slice. 
✿Place the apple slices in the bowl of water to soak and squeeze in a little bit of lemon juice. Leave for about 5 minutes to stop them from browning throughout the day.
✿Remove a doughnut at a time from the water, pat dry and then add your toppings. I went for peanut butter and cacao nibs, chocolate hazelnut spread with raspberries, jam with fruit, yoghurt with granola, but you can mix and match which makes it fun, and there you have lovely little doughnut apples!
✿These are best eaten on the day or the next whilst still fresh. Keep the doughnut apples in airtight containers in the fridge until you eat them. Enjoy!
