Healthy Cinnamon Roll Donut Holes

guilt-free healthy cinnamon rolls
I LOVE cinnamon rolls.
The perfectly soft and gooey cinnamon
filling and the creamy sauce dripping off the sides…
But, traditional cinnamon rolls are loaded with ingredients
that don’t promote glowing skin and rocking bodies: white flour,
milk, butter, eggs and brown sugar.
Not to mention, if you want to make them yourself, they take SO much time
to make because you have to wait for the yeast to rise.
So, finally, I’ve made a quick, tasty and healthified version:
Healthy Cinnamon Roll Donut Holes —
deliciously gooey and dripping with sweetness.

Easy, Guilt-Free Cinnamon Rolls Donut Holes
What You Need:
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
½ cup coconut palm sugar
⅓ cup coconut oil
1 tsp sea salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups coconut flour + 1 1/2 cups almond flour
Donut Hole Pan
1/2 cup packed coconut palm sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
2½ tablespoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons almond flour
⅓ cup coconut oil, softened
1/4 cup pecans, crushed

1. Pre-heat oven to 375 F

2. Dissolve the baking powder and almond milk in a large bowl.

3. Add coconut palm sugar, coconut oil, sea salt, eggs, and flours and mix well. (Tip: cold eggs will make the coconut oil solidify/harden, so leave out the egg for a few minutes before whisking it and whisk fast)

4. Grease the donut hole pans with a little coconut oil and using an ice-cream scooper, a spoon or your hands, spoon out about 2 Tbsp per donut hole and place it in the pan.

5. Bake at 375 F for approx 20-25 minutes or until just golden.

6. Meanwhile, to make the cinnamon topping, combine the coconut palm sugar, cinnamon, almond flour and pecans in a small saucepan and heat.

7. Once the donut holes are ready and cooled, using your fingers or a fork,  dip the donut holes in the topping, or generously drizzle approx 1/2 tsp onto each donut hole.

Feel free to add a drizzle of cashew cream icing on top too.

Serve and enjoy!

be sweet. be delicious. be kind.
