Yield: 1 dozen donut holes
I had experimented with a recipe previously, but I wasn’t happy enough with it to post it. This time I am!
These are delicious, but bear in mind that they are far more calories than a fried vegan donut hole. Loaded with nutritious ingredients like walnuts, dates, unsweetened coconut, Chia and flax seeds, and for the chocolate ones, cocoa powder, they pack a punch of 150 calories each, almost as much as a regular whole vegan donut.
Yes, they are power-packed, but the scale doesn’t know that, so enjoy in moderation.
