- 2 pc apple, cored and sliced like donuts
- 3-6 tbsp almond butter
- Dry ingredients
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1/8 cup dried cranberries / prunes (chopped), or trail mix
- Wet ingredients
- 2 pc banana
- 1/8 cup water
- 2 tbsp honey
- Optional ingredients
- Handful walnuts, chopped
- Handful 70% above dark chocolate, chopped
- Dash ground cloves
Prepare baking pan/sheet/tray and line it with baking paper. Set it aside. Preheat oven (w/o baking tray), about 375°F | 190°C for about 10-20mins.
On one large bowl, combine all dry ingredients [[and optional ingredients should you want them added — yes, you can add ’em all, but adjust wet ingredients with addition 1-2 tbsp water plus 1 tsp ground flaxseed]]. Set aside.
On a medium bowl, combine all wet ingredients, and coarsely mash the banana at the same time. [[If you add all optional ingredients add 1-2 tbsp water + 1 tsp ground flaxseed]].
Combine wet to dry ingredients. Whisk and mix well.
Spoon mixture unto baking tray with baking paper. Flatten /form a dollop into a medallion. One dollop makes one medallion, and sizes doesn’t have to be in uniform. Mixture can make about 8-12 medallions depending on preference. Ideally, sizes would depend on the sizes of the apple donuts. I am sure you can wing this! 😉 But it doesn’t have to be perfect to size. It will still taste amazing!!!
Bake the medallions for about 20-25 minutes over moderate heat of 375°F | 190°C.
While those goodies are baking, slice your apples horizontally, then de-core each slices to create somewhat like donuts. You can use a spoon, a knife, or whatev’ you got in the kitchen that will make this step easy for ya. Discard the core.
Spread almond butter on top of the apple donuts, then set aside if medallions aren’t done.
Soon as the oven “pinged!,” take the baking tray off the oven with proper tools. Put tray over the counter, then using a spatula, scoop out medallions to put them on top of your nut butter apple donuts. Yes! Ready to serve!
