I love a donut hole. Like, a legit donut hole. Ever since I was younger, there were one of my favorite treats. When I started consuming a dairy-free, gluten-free, lower sugar diet, it was almost impossible to find something that was just as good as the real deal (i’m still working on a baked donut hole, just wait!).

However, energy bites and bliss balls were some of my favorite treats to make and during one of my moments of “Let’s throw some stuff in a blender and see what happens”, these were born. After I coated them in a monk fruit powdered sugar glaze, I knew I had to call these no-bake donut bliss balls!

Whether you want a yummy snack to pair with your afternoon tea or coffee or the perfect grab-and-go snack, these donut holes will have you satisfied!

ingredients to make healthy donut holes

Equipment

  • Food processor
  • Mixing bowl
  • Fork, for dipping
  • Baking sheet with parchment paper

Ingredients

  • Raw cashews
  • Oats: I like to use old-fashioned oats.
  • Dates: Medjool dates work best!
  • Protein powder: I like to add vanilla protein powder to mine for a high protein snack! This is totally optional. If you do add protein, make sure it’s a brand you love the flavor of! i use Macro Mike – you can use my code “amb-dani” for a discount. Their flavors taste like dessert!
  • Maple syrup: You can also use honey, however I love the maple flavor this gives.
  • Baking essentials: Vanilla extract, sea salt
  • Powdered monk fruit sweetener: Regular powdered sugar can also be used. If you don’t want to do a powdered sugar glaze, you can also dip them in white chocolate!
  • Milk: You can use whatever milk you have on hand. I use cashew milk.

How to make healthy donut holes

Full measurements and instructions are in recipe card below.

Make the dough

If your dates are a little firm, soak them in a bowl of hot water for 20 minutes. This is important to ensure they blend well. In a food processor, combine all of the dry ingredients. Process 30 seconds or so until the nuts and oats are broken down. Then add in the dates. Process another minute or so until the dough comes together, but careful not to over-process. Taste and adjust as needed.

Roll into donut holes

I like to use a cookie scoop to scoop uniform scoops of dough onto a lined baking sheet. Then I roll the holes into perfect balls.

Dip the donut holes in glaze

Mix together the glaze ingredients. Dip each donut hole and return to the baking sheet. Place in the fridge until they are firm to touch before moving to an air-tight container.
