Hey all! My brother and sister are huge fans of donut holes-the powdery ones that is. I, on the other hand, was never a big fan. They were too sweet, too powdery, too messy….Yuck!
I am so glad I did, Cindy! They are Fabulous!
Here is a picture of Cindy’s Beautiful donut holes:
Would you like to make these adorable gems? Follow her recipe below:
Cindy’s Old Fashioned Donut Holes (almost raw)
- 1/4 c raw pecans
- 1/4 c raw walnuts
- 1 tsp cinnamon (be generous)
- 3 dates
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp coconut flour
- 1 tbs coconut flakes
- 1 tsp orange zest
Blend in food processor (I actually used a magic bullet!) and blend till well chopped. Roll into balls and then roll in flaked coconut. Freeze. (Sorry, Cindy. They were too good, and I was in a hurry, so I just threw them in a baggie instead of freezing them)
This is what mine looked like:
Instead of going out and buying an orange, I simply picked a fresh tangelo from my tree (It is finally tangelo season-half tangerine, half orange in case you were wondering) I also didn’t have any pecans, so I used almonds and walnuts instead (I bet pecans would taste better, though!) And…I omitted the coconut flour (Sorry! I didn’t have any!)
Cindy! These were great! I brought them to my tennis practice, and ate a couple in between my tennis lesson and weight session. Perfect energy ball! They reminded me of spiced oranges…and this spread...
Stay tuned for a new recipe by a different friend tomorrow!
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
Do you guys like donuts? I remember taking a standardized test in third grade, and my teacher brought us Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for “brain power.” Ugh! They gave me a headache even back then-too sweet!
