I’m back today with a recipe for one of my favorite things EVER—doughnut holes! I can’t get enough of a good doughnut, and I wanted to find a fall-inspired recipe that was grain-free and good for you. These little guys were the final product!
Many of you are by this point well-acquainted with my love of coconut flour. Well…these were no exception. This coconut flour batter got an extra punch of apple-filled goodness with the addition of warm apple cider to the batter.
After the batter was made, I heated up some oil in a pan and started to fry! The consistency of these is a little more tender than flour, so it was kind of tricky getting them in, hence, their “interesting” shape…but hey, fried goodness is fried goodness!
After the doughnuts were fried, I made the cinnamon sugar topping. But as luck would have it…I ALSO have coconut sugar. Really, really delicious and an amazing sweetener!
A quick toss in the cinnamon sugar mixture and straight into my mouth.
So, how did these doughnut holes stack up?
Healthy: While I can’t lie that fried foods are **probably** not the healthiest thing for you, sticking to grain and dairy free versions cut out some of the guilt, right?
Good: Fried food is good. Enough said. The hint of apples in there makes this the perfect fall treat!
Do-able: If you have a doughnut maker or even doughnut baking tins, you might get these to come out a little prettier than mine were. Other than that, this recipe is totally do-able!
Enjoy and HAPPY FALL Y’ALL!
