These Apple Cider Donut Mini Muffins are amazingly close to apple cider donuts and a MUST try for this fall season!
I recently discovered that apple cider donuts are NOT sold everywhere in the United States. Now that is a BUMMER. I feel sorry for you. Apple cider donuts are one of the top things we look forward to in Michigan when fall rolls around. They are amazingly delicious and indulgent. Thank goodness we can’t get them year around. My waist line would not appreciate it. I’ve been seeing Rachel’s apple cider donut muffins from Baked by Rachel on Pinterest for several weeks now which lead me to make these muffins.
Now my husband may like apple cider donuts even more than I do, but I have to say that when he tasted these muffins he said they were an amazing alternative (and good REPLACEMENT) of actual cider mill donuts. Not that says a lot about the taste of these muffins and describes just how irresistible they are!
And my younger two kids had no problem helping me dip the muffins into the cinnamon/sugar mix!
I’m not going to say these are the perfect healthy snack because they are not. However, I do want to point out that when you’re making recipes that call for all purpose flour, try swapping out some of it with “white whole wheat flour.” White whole wheat flour is whole wheat its just made with a “white whole grain” and is lighter in texture than whole wheat flour. I typically do about a 50/50 (all purpose/white whole wheat) split when making baked goods. It’s an easy way to add some whole grains to your baked goods and even some fiber. Give it a try, you’ll likely not even notice the difference!
