Apple Cider Doughnuts

With the start of Fall upon us, we felt inspired by one of our favorite activities of the season, visiting the pumpkin patch. Sure picking out a pumpkin is fun, but the real delight is getting some apple cider doughnuts to take home. Since it's hard to resist eating a dozen of those doughnuts at a time we decided to re-create them using our protein pancake mix, so now you can enjoy this delicious treat without overindulging. Although they may not be fresh from the orchard, these apple cider doughnuts are just as tasty as the classic sugar-packed recipe everyone loves, but with much fewer calories and more protein to keep you satisfied longer.

Apple Cider Doughnuts

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray donut pan with nonstick spray, set aside.
  • Pour apple cider into a small saucepan and simmer on low-medium heat. Cook cider until reduced to about 1/2 of a cup - about 15-20 minutes. Allow reduced ½ cup to cool in the fridge as you prep the rest.
  • Combine the FlapJacked mix, baking powder, cinnamon, ground cloves, and salt in a large bowl.
  • In another (medium) bowl, whisk egg, add in buttermilk, applesauce, vanilla, and concentrated apple cider and mix well.
  • Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients, gently mixing until everything is just combined.
  • Use a spoon to dollop batter into a greased doughnut pan(s). Fill each doughnut about ¾ full.
  • Bake for 10-14 minutes, or until doughnuts are cooked through.
  • Allow doughnuts to cool for a couple of minutes, then pop them out and continue cooling.
  • Add the topping of your choice.

MAPLE DRIZZLE

  • Combine confectioners sugar, maple syrup, salt, and milk in a small bowl. Drizzle glaze over the doughnuts to your liking.

SUGAR COATING

  • Put melted butter in a small bowl. In another small bowl mix the cinnamon and sugar.
  • When the doughnuts are cool enough to touch, brush both sides of each doughnut with the melted butter, then dip in the cinnamon sugar till coated to your liking.
