I grew up around donuts. My grandparents owned a donut shop in Simi Valley, California called Foster’s Donuts.
I remember having birthday parties behind the counter and the smell of warm donuts, perhaps it wired me with a sweet tooth but the thought of giving up my round doughy little friends was torture. Something had to be done about it and these Healthy Apple Cinnamon Glazed Donuts were the delicious answer.
For the bigger donuts that don’t have a “hole” in them all the way through fill with your favorite jam and go to foodie heaven!
