Apple ‘Doughnuts’

Not quite what we were expecting when you said ‘doughnuts mummy, but still yummy’  was the response I received when I served these up for a play date snack!

Why not give them a go, fun to make together as a family and you can vary the toppings and sprinkles to your taste.

A fun way to introduce new nuts, seeds or toppings into your diet.
