Rawmazing Doughnut Holes
I remember when I first started experimenting with raw food recipes, I came across a raw food recipe for “doughnut holes”. That was a few years ago. Today, I decided to revisit the concept and wanting something that really reminded me of a cinnamon doughnut hole, threw together this quick version. Made with Brazil nuts for a base, some oat flour, flaked oats and coconut oil, a quick roll in cinnamon and sucanant gives a great tasting treat.
Brazil nuts are nutrient dense. They are full of protein, copper, niacin, magnesium, fiber, vitamin E and selenium. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant that works to neutralize dangerous free radicals. Sucanant is a unrefined sugar cane juice. It is made by heating, so not considered raw, but like maple syrup, is not processed.
Fine chop Brazil nuts in the food processor. Combine with oats and oat flour.
Mix together wet ingredients, stir into dry.
Mix together Sucanant and Cinnamon
Roll into balls and then roll in sucanant cinnamon mixture, refrigerate.
- 2 cups Brazil Nuts
- 1/2 cup Oat Flour (made from raw oats)
- 1 cup Flaked Oats (raw)
- 1/3 cup Coconut Oil
- 1/3 cup Maple Syrup (not raw but used in raw food recipes)
- Chop Brazil nuts in food processor until fine.
- Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Combine wet ingredients, mix together and then add to the dry ingredients. Stir.
- Squeeze into balls.
- Roll in sucanant cinnamon mixture and refrigerate.
- 1/3 cup Sucanat (not raw but not processed, used in raw recipes)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon
- Combine and put through blender. I use a coffee grinder for this to break up the grainy sucanant. You can skip this step and just combine the ingredients.
