Raw Vegan Donut Holes
Donuts are an American favorite, but unfortunately they are loaded with sugar and fat. An evil combination when it comes to your health. These delicious donut holes are raw, vegan and delicious. Made with cashews and walnuts as a base, they are great for your brain, as well as providing sustained energy. I sometimes use different combinations of nuts, for different flavor, so get creative!
- 1-1/2 cups cashews
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 5 dates, pitted
- 1/4 c. grade B maple syrup or brown rice syrup
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a food processor cup fitted with the s-blade, grind the cashews, walnuts, coconut and sea salt to a crumbly consistency but leaving some chunks of nuts.
Add in remaining ingredients and process until the mixture forms into a sticky dough. Remove lid and scrape out into a bowl. Roll into small truffle size balls and roll in cinnamon or shredded coconut. Store in refrigerator.
