Raw Vegan Donut Holes

These raw vegan donut holes taste so much like the real doughy thing that Kenny jokingly asked me if they came from Dunkin or Krispy Kreme. They are very delicious and are perfect snacks for kids of any age, including 57! Raw vegan donut holes are a great, on-the-go snack for a busy schedule. They are quick and easy to make and even quicker to eat! Keep them in the freezer for an even better experience, plus they’ll last longer … unless the “kids” find them.

Tips to Lower Cost

Some ingredients in this donut hole recipe may be a bit expensive, so to lower the cost, simply get the best that you can afford. For instance, organic Medjool dates are the best, but buy regular Deglet Noor dates if that is all your budget allows. Also, organic, extra-virgin, cold-pressed, unrefined coconut oil is by far the best, but simply get a cold-pressed coconut oil if need be. Eventually, you may want to allow more in your food budget for healthier choices. In the meantime, just do what you can with what you have now.

Tips for Preparing Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so to use it as a liquid, you will need to gently heat this at a temperature no more than 118°F. To do this, simply turn your stove eye on, let it get hot, then turn it off. Then, set your coconut oil onto the warm eye in a metal pot or container and watch it melt.

Use it soon before it turns solid again. Do not let it boil, since we want the oil to retain its healthy enzymes to aid in digestion. Heating above 118°F will kill those precious enzymes.

Finally, if there is any left over, you can pour it back into your coconut oil container. No worries; it will turn solid again when it cools off, thus eliminating waste.
