Thissss for December
Mini Apple Donuts
- 1/4 cup of lightly packed brown sugar (140)
- 1/4 cup of white sugar (194)
- 1 1/2 cups of finely diced apples, peeled and cored (86)
- 1 1/2 cups of plain flour (683)
- 1 3/4 tsp baking powder (8)
- 1/2 tsp salt (0)
- 1 tsp nutmeg (12)
- 1/3 cup of chilled unsweetened applesauce (35)
- 1 egg (63)
- 1/4 cup of milk (31)
Preheat your oven to 350F. Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugars, salt and and nutmeg in a bowl. Add the chilled applesauce. Mix the applesauce with the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg. Mix in the milk and fold in the chopped apples. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture. Stir using a spatula or spoon making sure not to overmix. Place a spoonful of batter into each mold of a buttered mini donut pan (Note: If you do not have one of these, mini muffin pans work fine, too!)
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the donuts are just golden. Remove from the oven, unmold and serve immediately.

16 HEALTHIEST FOODS EVER.
Look at that MUSCLE! Hot, hot, hot.
the most recent addition to my overflowing vegan cookbook arsenal is chloe’s kitchen (by food network’s cupcake wars champion chloe coscarelli), and i must have thumbed through it at least a dozen times before deciding what to make first. the book is rife with tantalizing recipes (creamy scalloped potatoes, LA chimichurri tacos, double double drive-thru burgers!), and after much deliberation i arrived at the vegetable-laden asian entree, chinese takeout chow mein.
bursting with flavor and simple to prepare, this dish was an instant hit at our house—in fact, we’ve already bought ingredients to make it again this week! it maintained the look and feel of old school chinese takeout, without the icky greasiness or animal bits. plus, this was a meal that tasted just as good left over…and it gave me an excuse (as if i need one!) to bust out the sriracha. a+!
i’ll report back as i try more recipes from chloe’s kitchen, but so far i’m off to a really good start. almost every recipe is accompanied by a giant, full color, mouthwatering photograph…so i’m having a hell of a time deciding what to make next.
you can find chloe’s kitchen on amazon, and probably at your local book store!
