Recipe Directions

If you want, peel apples first, then…
Core the apples (or, if you’re like me and don’t own an apple corer, slice first and then remove cores from each slice using a knife).
Slice thick, horizontal slices (your goal is to have round slices of apple with holes in the middle where the core used to be).
Mix together ground flax and cinnamon. Press apple slices in flax/cinnamon mixture to coat each side. Voila!
Other variations:
Chocolate covered (or chocolate frosted) donuts: blend cacao powder, coconut, and agave (or sweetener of choice), then cover or frost donuts with the mixture.
Maple frosted donuts: Blend dates and liquid of your choice (coconut water, nut mylk, plain water, citrus juice, whatever you’ve got) and, if you use it, maple syrup. Spread on donuts.
Top any of these with chopped nuts! Or cacao nibs!
I bet you could even make a jelly-filled donut if you stacked a donut slice on top of a solid apple slice and filled the hole with blended berries. Who knows!
Have fun!

Suzyq's Thoughts

Simple, light, fruit-based donuts! Use little apples and make mini donuts or big apples for regular donuts. You can make infinite variations on this!

Yes Tiny1, no problem!
Here's the ingredients:
3 fuji apples, sliced
1 cup golden flax seeds, soaked
1 cup Thai young coconut meat, the thick kind from slightly older coconuts
2 tablespoons raw agave
few sprinkes of ground cinnamon
1/4 cup almond pulp (from making milk)
2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
First, put the soaked flax in a nut milk bag and strain out all the water you can. Put the flax seeds and the coconut in a vita-mix (a regular blender would probably work too) and blend until completely smooth. Add the apple slices, cinnamon, almond pulp, agave and coconut oil agave and finish off the blending till the apple is completely ground. It should be a dough, might also be a bit runny. Place the mixture on a teflex sheet, and shape into round, thick circles the size of burger buns. Dehydrate for 2-5 hours, depending on the strength of your dehydrator. Then, the circles should be firm enough to make holes in the holes. To do this, you can take a ball the size of a golf ball in make a hole in with the golf balls. Put one ball in for each donut, and keep them in the donuts. Dehydrate for another 5-7 hours, until the consistency of donuts. Take out the balls, and carefully remove the donuts from he teflex sheets. Dip in chocolate glaze, jelly, etc. Eat.
You could use another round object instead of balls, it just was what I had
I will post the recipe soetime with a picture and more specific details on the glaze etc.

These sound good! RawKidChef, I was wondering if you could tell me how you make your donuts that you dehydrate. Both sound great!

Amazing picture! I make something very similar, except I add young coconut meat. It is really a delicacy.
