Drizzled Apple “Donut” Snacks
This donut-shaped snack packs in both flavor and health value. This easy-to-make recipe takes under 15 minutes: simply slice the apples, core them, and then drizzle and add toppings. Warming the nut butters in the microwave helps make the spreads runny and perfect for drizzling. Substitute with sunflower seed butter or any seed or nut butter of your choice to make these food-allergy friendly. Three apples makes about 12 “donuts.”
