Baked Apple Cinnamon Donut Holes

When fall hits, my baking juices start flowing. These adorable baked apple cinnamon donut holes are just the ticket to make your kitchen smell like heaven and get your taste buds singing. They are vegan, soft, fluffy, and quick to throw together.

I used half spelt flour and half all purpose flour in these baked apple cinnamon donut holes, but if you don’t have spelt flour on hand, no problem, just use all purpose flour. You will also need a mini muffin tin, which is how these little cuties are baked. Drop a comment if you try these and don’t forget to tag @thymeforhoney on IG!
