I must confess that I am not a big fan of fried sweets. They taste often too much like oil for my taste. If like me, you’re craving healthier fried apple rings, here’s my recipe for Healthy Apple Rings.

It’s a healthy version because there’s no frying and even no butter in the dough! The result is impressive because the apple rings remain super soft once cooked.

How to make Healthy Apple Rings?

To make these Healthy Apple Rings, I first made a yogurt-based pancake batter. The pancake batter has the perfect consistency and adding yogurt to the batter brings lightness to it.

Then, to get a nice ring shape with the famous hole in the middle, I used an apple corer to form pretty apple circles. I used the apple corer with a plum wood handle from Triangle (see photo below). You will find all the kitchen utensils with nice wooden handles from the sense range of Triangle their online shop.

Then, once the apples peeled and emptied, I cut them into relatively large slices that I dipped in the pancake batter and then cook them in a pan. To finish, I rolled my apple rings in a cinnamon sugar. It’s really delicious!

Which apples to choose?

I recommend using apples that melt well when cooked, such as golden or boskoop apples. This way the pancake batter and the apples mix perfectly when baked and you feel like you are biting into a homogenous batter.

Are you missing an ingredient? Here are some tips on how to substitute certain ingredients.

Preparation

In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon. Then add the eggs and yogurt. Mix the mixture well with a whisk or a food processor to obtain a homogeneous paste. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, remove the cores from the apples with an apple corer and peel them. Cut them into fairly thick slices.

Heat a little butter or oil in a pan. Dip the apple slices in the batter and place them on the hot pan. Fry for about 2 minutes on each side over medium heat.

Let cool for 10 minutes on a plate. This way, the batter will gradually melt into the apple.

My tip: I then microwave the apple rings for 30 seconds before covering them with cinnamon sugar. The texture is then just perfect!

Finally, mix in the sugar and cinnamon reserved for decoration. Cover the doughnuts with the cinnamon sugar. Enjoy immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I substitute some of the ingredients ?

As with every blog post, here are some tips for substituting ingredients in this recipe:

  • Apples: You can replace apples with other fruits such as pear slices, but it is difficult to get the rings shape with other fruits though.
  • Flour: You can replace the flour or part of the flour with ground almonds or gluten-free flour.
  • Sugar: You can replace the sugar with a tablespoon of honey.
  • Cinnamon: You can remove the cinnamon or replace it with a little vanilla.

Can we make these Healthy Apple Rings in advance?

These apple rings are best eaten directly after making them, or even better after resting for 10 minutes. If you prepare them too early, they will end up being softer, sticky because of the sugar and less appetizing.

If you want to make this recipe ahead of time, prepare the dough up to 12 hours ahead of time and keep it in your fridge. Then cut the apples at the last moment and cook just before serving.

Can I freeze these Healthy Apple Rings?

Yes, you can freeze these apple rings. However, they will taste much better fresh!

How long do these apple rings keep?

These apple rings will keep for three days in the refrigerator. However, after 2-3 hours, their appearance becomes less appetizing, so I advise you to eat them on the same day.
