⅛ tsp. allspice
½ tsp. salt (optional)
½ tbsp. ground flax seed

1 tsp. vanilla extract

For the Glaze

For the Topping

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a doughnut pan generously and set aside.

Make the Doughnuts:

In a large bowl, whisk together wet ingredients: maple syrup, apple cider, apple sauce, canola oil and vanilla extract. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until just combined. Spoon or pipe batter into the prepared doughnut pan, filling each mold about ¾ full. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until doughnuts spring back when gently pressed. Remove from oven and let the doughnuts cool in pan for a few minutes before transferring them onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

Once the doughnuts have cooled, dip the tops of each into the glaze. Sprinkle immediately with cinnamon sugar. Let them sit for a few minutes to let the glaze harden. The wait will be tough, but worth it!
