Quick Snack Recipe: Apple Cinnamon “Donuts”

By: Jen Hansard | last Updated: 7.2.2017 | COMMENTS: 5


There are times when I am feeling super hungry, and nothing else can quite hit the spot like a delicious and quick snack. You know what I’m talking about, right? When mid-afternoon hits, and you’re feeling a little sleepy… you just need something quick to keep those energy levels up and the “hangry” levels down.

If you resonate with any of that, then these Apple Cinnamon “Donuts” are just the thing for you!

A Quick Snack Recipe You Must Try

These donut-shaped apple slices are slathered in almond butter and cinnamon, and ready for you to place any other ingredient on top that would pair well: strawberries, bananas, shredded coconut, hemp hearts… you name it! One of the main reasons I love this simple recipe is because of how quick and easy it is to make, with almost no clean up.

    A word of advice…don’t get hung up on making the rings.
    I just used my normal apple corer slicer and then topped the slices with the almond butter and coconut flakes and it makes a great portable lunch snack!

      Hey Susan,

      That is great advice!!

      I am so happy you enjoyed this delicious healthy snack!

  2. Lyz Moses says:

    anything you would suggest to swap out the almond butter if someones allergic to almonds?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Lyz,

      Yes! Swap in another nut or seed butter your body is ok with. Personally, I’m obsessed with honey sunflower butter!

    So, with any detox, you do I work away from home and the smoothies for breakfast or lunch are not doable with me. I work anywhere from 8-10 hours a day and a hour drive, so I’m just wondering about the detox??
