Directions for Apple Donuts

Follow these directions step by step carefully!

Place apples (sliced horizontally into ¾” slices) on a cutting board, and use an apple corer or the back of a frosting tip to core the center of each apple slice.

In a mixer, add the chilled cream cheese, honey and cinnamon. Mix until ingredients are incorporated and mixture is creamy.

Optional: Divide the cream cheese mixture into small bowls and use a drop or two of food coloring to create different colored frosting options for the donuts.

Apple Donuts

Frost each apple “donut” slice with a layer of the cream cheese mixture. It can be difficult to spread the frosting on the apple slices if they’re too wet. To help with this, simply use a dry paper towel to pat the excess moisture from each slice before frosting.

Optional: Sprinkle on colored sprinkles to complete the snack and serve

This is a recipe I love to make with my kids! It’s super simple and super healthy! Don’t every underestimate using fruit when it comes to afternoon school snacks. This one is a such a delight and a big treat! The kids don’t even realize it’s a healthy snack option (the best!).
