• 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
• 1 cup powdered sugar
• 1/4 cup milk
• 1/2 cup finely chopped apple
• 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 cup brown sugar
• 3/4 cup gluten-free flour
• 2 drops of almond extract
• 3 tablespoons crushed pecans, (optional)
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 3/4 teaspoon apple pie spice, divided
• 1 egg, beaten
Directions: Makes 12 Donuts
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a donut pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice. Add the apples, milk, yogurt, egg and oil. Mix until a thick batter forms.
Using a small spoon carefully fill each donut shape 3/4 of the way full. Be careful not to overfill. Bake 10–12 minutes.
Carefully remove the donuts and let cool completely on a wire rack.
To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, milk, almond extract and 1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice. If your mixture is too thick, add additional milk one teaspoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency.
Drizzle the glaze onto the donuts and sprinkle crushed pecans on top, if using.
