OK, let’s get this out in the open. Do you call them doughnuts or donuts? Please excuse me as I waffle back and forth between the two terms. Whatever name you use for these breakfast treats, doughnuts/donuts are absolutely delicious, and I love that I can now make them at home.

Yesterday, I had the itch to bake..and to try something new. I had a few slightly bruised apples that no one wanted to eat, so I searched for an apple cinnamon donut recipe until I found one that looked just right.

Not only did these donuts fill my house with the most incredible smells, but they were absolutely incredible. They reminded me of a moist, baked version of apple fritters. Get your attention?

Baked Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12
  • 1 cup oat flour*
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped or shredded
  • Additional 2-3 Tbsp butter, melted
  • ½ cup sugar plus 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray the doughnut pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, and apple.
  4. Add the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  5. Spoon the batter into a ziploc bag, cutting a small hole in one corner (or use a pastry bag, if you have one!). Pipe the batter into the doughnut pan, filling each section just below the top.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until set.
  7. Cool on the stove top for 5 minutes, and then turn the pan over to release the doughnuts on a wire cooling rack.
  8. Brush the warm doughnuts with additional melted butter and toss in cinnamon sugar mixture.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy!
*You can find oat flour in most stores, but I like to make my own. I simply put uncooked old fashioned oats in my Ninja blender and blend until it becomes powdery. Easy peasy!

I have to mention…I had a little bit of the browned butter glaze left over from the spice doughnuts I made a week or so ago, and I spread a little on these apple donuts. Yes, on TOP of the cinnamon sugar. The glaze took the doughnuts to a whole new level. Oh my!
