Healthy Apple Cider Donuts with a Tahini Maple Glaze
What’s that? A HEALTHY donut!? You bet! These healthy apple cider donuts with a tahini maple glaze were a recipe that caught my eye while flipping through a magazine and then one I HAD to make after our family visit to the apple orchard.
Combine apple cider and apples in a saucepan over medium-high heat; cover and cook 10 minutes. Uncover and cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cool 10 minutes. Pour apple mixture into a blender; process until smooth.
Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl; stir with a whisk.
Combine apple mixture, sugar, yogurt, oil and egg white in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Add yogurt mixture to flour mixture and stir until combined
Coat a 6 cavity donut pan with cooking spray. Spoon batter evenly into 12 cavities. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes, or until donuts spring back when lightly pressed. Cool in pan for 2 minutes. Invert donuts onto wire rack. Cool completely
Combine tahini and maple syrup stirring with a whisk. Add water; whisk until smooth.
Spread glaze over tops of donuts. Let stand until glaze is set, then enjoy.
