Alright so these are nothing like real donut holes, but I pretend they are. Actually they are a lot more like granola bars, but without the granola. These hard to define raw vegan desserts are the perfect snack for after a work out or with your morning coffee. They're easy to make and you can play with the ingredients without messing them up. I used this recipe (Raw Pecan "Chocolate Chip" Cookie) but changed a few things based on what we had in the house.

1 cup raw almond butter
20 pitted medjool dates, pitted
3/4 cup shredded, dried coconut flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup pecans, chopped

1. Place dates into a food processor and mix until smooth
2. Add almond butter, pecans, coconut, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla and blend together
3. Using your hands or a spoon form mix into small round orbs
4. Refrigerate before eating. Makes approx 15-20 donut holes.

I just came across this recipe and I am eager to try it next time.



These look so good, despite the fact that I am really full =) x

That sounds fantastic, and I bet wrapping them up like a cupcake makes you feel like you're indulging more than you are. Clever little mindgame!
