Here’s a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth. These RAW VEGAN GLAZED DONUT HOLES are easy to make with a few, good-for-you ingredients.
I’ve been having a lot of sweet cravings lately. But, sometimes you want to get those cravings taken care of without going for sugary treats. Well, if you’re like me, then you’re in luck!
These donut holes are refined sugar free and made using rolled oats, cashews and dates. They turn out incredibly moist.
I also added some cacao powder to half of the dough so I would end up with half of the batch with a chocolate-y flavor.
These are a great little snack to have around. They are, in essence, a bit of an energy bar disguised as donut holes... so good!
I’m drooling already. Let’s get to it!
RAW VEGAN GLAZED DONUT HOLES
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
For the donut holes:
2/3 Cup cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours
2/3 Cup rolled oats
2/3 Cup pitted dates
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cacao powder (optional)
For the glaze:
3 Tbsp coconut oil
3 Tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Start by processing all the dough ingredients in a food processor until you end up with a thick, moist dough. If the mixtures doesn’t stick together, add some more dates.
Roll the dough into balls and place in the freezer to harden, about 20 minutes.
Make the glaze by whisking all ingredients in a small bowl until you get a thin caramel consistency.
Dip the donut holes in the glaze and coat each one completely. Place them back in the freezer for the glaze to harden.
Repeat this process until you use up all the glaze. Whisk the glaze mixture before coating the donut holes each time. Yo may end up coating and freezing up to 3 times.
Store the glazed donut holes in your refrigerator.
