Apple beignets recipe

Apple Beignets are a healthy and yet delicious snack for Fall and Winter. They are apple slices in a pancake batter, fried and then turned in a sugar and cinnamon mixture. All the best tastes of the Fall!

Fresh apples are delicious but with cold weather, everyone is craving something warm rather than biting into a cold apple. So here is the perfect recipe for warm apples and all the good things we love, like pancakes and cinnamon.

Healthy Apple Beignets

This recipe is so simple and straight forward, there is not really a lot to say about. You can make the apple beignets with all-purpose flour or, as I did it in the video, add even more healthiness by using whole wheat flour. Some people don’t like whole wheat flour. It surely has a stronger taste and one has to get used to it. My recommendation is, to add 1/3 whole wheat flour to all recipes that usually require all-purpose flour. You will soon come to like the richer taste in your food and then slowly increase the amount of whole wheat flour. This works with children, too, especially if you use this tactic with cakes. Well, at least it worked for my kids.

I turn my apple beignets in a cinnamon-sugar mix before I serve them but you could as well pour some maple syrup on them or use anything you usually like on your pancakes. Get creative and maybe spread some peanut butter on them or some jam, Nutella (ok, we are definitely leaving “healthy” here!) or sever it with whipped cream, ice cream …

sharp knife


  • 3 apples, organic preferred
  • 140 g whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 100 ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pinch baking soda

  • Heat the oil in a pan.
  • Mix the 50g sugar with the cinnamon and put it into a deep dish.
  • Now, take one apple slice and put it into the batter so it is covered with it.
