Baked Apple Cider Donuts

Soft Baked Apple Cider Donuts made healthier with whole wheat flour, applesauce and Greek yogurt for the perfect fall treat that comes together in just 20 minutes!  Loaded with warm spices and coated with cinnamon and sugar!

Yield: 12 donuts 1x


For the cinnamon sugar coating:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt while in a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, apple cider, Greek yogurt, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined (you don’t want to over mix the batter).
  3. To make these donuts you’ll need two 6-count donut pans like these.  Spray them really good with nonstick spray so that your donuts will pop right out!  Then, using a pastry bag or ziplock bag, spoon the donut batter into the bag and snip off the corner.  Pipe the batter into each donut well until they are all filled (this recipe makes exactly 12 donuts).
  4. Bake the donuts in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean (mine came out perfect at 10 minutes).  Transfer the donuts to a wire cooling rack so they can cool.
  5. Once the donuts have cooled completely to room temperature, melt the coconut oil (or butter) and mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl.  Using a pastry brush, lightly coat each donut in coconut oil and toss in the cinnamon sugar mixture, making sure to coat both sides.  Serve and enjoy!
