Ingredients
For the Donuts
  • 1 C white whole wheat flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ C brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ C non-fat plain yogurt
  • 3 tbsp non-fat milk
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • ⅓ C caramel bits
  • ½ C shredded apple
For the Glaze
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ¼ C sugar
  • 2 tbsp apple cider
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ¼ C confectioner’s sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, salt, and brown sugar.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together egg, yogurt, milk, and butter. Add wet ingredient to dry ingredients and stir until well-combined. Stir in caramel bits and shredded apple until just combined.
  4. Pour batter into a pastry bag or a gallon-sized bag with the tip cut off. Pipe batter into donut cavities.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges just start to turn golden brown. Allow donuts to cool for 3 minutes in pan before removing to wire rack to finish cooling.
  6. While donuts are cooling, start to prepare the glaze. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and sugar together over medium heat. Bring to a boil and boil for two minutes, making sure to stir occasionally to avoid scorching.
  7. Stir in one tablespoon apple cider and bring back to a boil for another two minutes.
  8. Turn heat to low. Add in cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, confectioner’s sugar, and the second tablespoon of apple cider.
  9. Carefully dip the tops of the donuts into the glaze while the saucepan is still sitting over low heat. Removing the pan from the heat will cause the glaze to crystallize.
  10. Allow glaze to harden and serve.
  11. Store any leftovers in a loosely covered container.
