These Healthier Apple "Doughnuts" From TikTok Look So Good, I Could Eat a Dozen
Doughnuts are a beloved breakfast pastry. But lately, people have gone on TikTok to promote a doughnut-adjacent midday (or nighttime) snack as an alternative to the doughy, sugary treats. Enter apple "doughnuts," which are exactly what they sound like — snacks made from fresh apple rings. Of course, there's nothing wrong with eating an actual doughnut, but this apple variety is a great option if you're in search for something on the healthier side.

You top them with a spread; add chocolate chips, sprinkles, nuts, or other toppings of your choice; and put them in the fridge to harden and set. I made my first batch with peanut butter, granola, and cinnamon, and they were a nutty, crunchy, and sweet side dish during lunch.
They're easy to assemble, and you can choose your favourite kind of apple to act as a blank canvas for trying new flavour combinations. Plus, some people make them into more of a dessert by coating the slices with frosting or chocolate — yum! Take a look ahead for a few creation ideas.
