Healthy glazed donut recipe!



  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2/3 cup Musselman’s Apple Butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Pinch of salt



  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a donut pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the egg, apple butter, applesauce, almond milk, melted butter, and vanilla until well-mixed. Set aside.
  3. In a second mixing bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg until well-mixed.
  4. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, and stir until just combined—do not overmix.
  5. Fill the prepared donut pan with the batter, making sure to leave the center hole uncovered, and only filling the spaces up about halfway.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the tops are just turning golden, and a toothpick inserted in the middle of the donut comes out clean.
  7. Remove from oven, and immediately remove the donuts to a wire cooling rack.
  8. To glaze: whisk together all glaze ingredients until very smooth. Once donuts have cooled completely, dip in the glaze, and let set up on a wire rack until solidified.
