SECRETLY HEALTHY Donut Holes (Again!)

I’m here to give you what you want.

The people have spoken (in my Instagram survey).

And demanded MORE donut holes 😀

Because of the the overwhelming response to my Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes  (possibly my  most highly rated recipe EVER) I created a NEW donut hole flavor for all my fellow donut lovers.

Now it’s time for BLUEBERRY. Oh em gee you guys! I love this flavor too.

These are JUST as easy to make as the cinnamon ones, and dang, the TASTE is just as unbelievable.

DAIRY-FREE/ KETO/ PALEO/ VEGAN DESSERT SHOP??

My husband wants me to open a donut hole shop because of how freaking delicious my donut holes are and the crazy response they’ve gotten.

Who knows, I might just do it! 😉 

Healthy (sugar-free, whole-food, unrefined) dessert shops are practically NON-EXISTENT.

If I wanted to go out for a treat made with healthy ingredients, I’d be left empty-handed.

What do YOU think- Is there a market for a Healthy Dessert Shop? Would you be a customer?

A couple of weeks ago, I actually had my very first Pretty Pies Pop-Up Shop just north of Dallas! I sold a variety of cheesecakes, pies, and my cinnamon donut holes. And I was shocked that I sold out SO FAST. (My first customer wanted to buy ALL the donut holes I made! =O)

The pop-up-shop was a dream come true. I have always wanted to sell my desserts. Although it was a great experience, it was a LOT more work than I expected. (Major props to all the restaurants and small businesses out there! It’s not easy!)

Will there be future pop-ups, a cafe/bakery/shop someday? MAYBE… we shall see what’s in store. I’d love to hear your feedback on if YOU would come to a pop-up event. 🙂Blueberry Donut Holes (Keto, Paleo, Vegan) PrettyPies.com

A “HOLE” LOT OF DELICIOUS

Get ready for melt in your mouth goodness, friends!!

  • Light and pillowy,
  • Perfectly sweet,
  • Speckled with blueberry bits, and
  • “Sugar” coated for amazing texture

DONUT HOLES!

No frying, no sugar, no flour, no butter, no eggs, no yeast, nothing complicated and nothing unhealthy.

They almost remind me of beignets. Especially when they’re RIGHT out of the oven, warm and SOFT. Mmmmm.Blueberry Donut Holes (Keto, Paleo, Vegan) PrettyPies.com

5-SECONDS to make?!

Yeah, you read that right. Just throw ALL the ingredients in a food processor and blend for about FIVE SECONDS to make the dough.

It doesn’t get much easier than that, lol.

Super simple. Super quick.

I use this classic Cuisinart food processor (which has held up to years and YEARS of heavy use)

No food processor? Blending your blueberries using a small blender should work. Then just mix together the berries and other ingredients by hand in a mixing bowl.Blueberry Donut Holes (Keto, Paleo, Vegan) PrettyPies.com

Simple, Healthy Ingredients

  1. Almond Flour
  2. Coconut Flour
  3. Blueberries
  4. Coconut Oil
  5. Monkfruit

And I pretty much *always* add a splash of Mexican vanilla and a dash of pink salt to evvverything. It just enhances the flavor so much. Blueberry Donut Holes (Keto, Paleo, Vegan) PrettyPies.com

FRESH vs FROZEN Berries

No fresh berries? No problem. You can thaw frozen blueberries to use in this recipe.

However, I would drain the excess liquid before adding them, since frozen berries tend to have a higher water content.

If you have WILD blueberries, those would give the BEST classic blueberry flavor. Yum!

I used fresh organic blueberries from Aldi, and they were deliciously SWEET. (And also happened to be enormous, haha!)

TIP: use blueberries that are SWEET and not too tart for best results. But you can always sweeten your dough to taste ;)Blueberry Donut Holes (Keto, Paleo, Vegan) PrettyPies.com

HEALTHY TASTES SO DANG GOOD

I think you’re gonna love these donut holes! What’s not to love?? Sinfully good taste, without all the SUGAR and carbs. 90 calories and under 2 net carbs a pop! Woohoo!

Enjoy them fresh from the oven when they’re warm and pillowy, or straight from the fridge! Either way, one bite makes me go OMG.

      A good sub for nut flours is seed flour, such as pumpkin seed flour or sunflower seed flour.

      If you have a good food processor or high speed blender, it’s easy to grind seeds into flour yourself.

      Grain based flours will not yield the same consistently due to the higher starch and lower fat ratios.

      If you try a sub, please let me know how it goes

    • Emily says:

      Hmm, I don’t think it would have the same texture since cassava is much starchier than almond and much less absorbent than coconut flour.

      But if you did want to try it, you would likely need extra flour. Maybe 2 cups. (Add enough so that it’s not sticky.)

      Let me know how it goes if you try them

    I just made these and they were above all my expectations!!!!!! I used frozen blueberries and minced them and it worked great! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with the world! Can’t wait to try the cinnamon ones!!!!!!! Woohoo goldmine right here.

    • Emily says:

      If you bake the cinnamon ones, they turn into cookies 🙂 But definitely taste them raw! I know it seems weird, but the texture is amazing! Not wet or doughy.
      The blueberry donuts are best baked (but you can totally eat the dough too )

  2. Blanca Sanchez says:

    These sound amazing! I was wondering if I could you erithitol or swerve instead of monkfruit…if so how much?

    • Emily says:

      Thanks! Yes, you can 🙂 The monkfruit I used is actually an erythritol blend. But if you don’t have it, swerve should work too.

      I would start with 2 1/2 Tbs and taste the dough. You can always add more.

      Let me know how they turn out if you make them 🙂

    I live in Southern Oklahoma, and I would absolutely, 100% come to your pop up shop! Holy cow! I totally agree, it’s impossible to find a healthy treat out there! My husband and I used to go get an ice cream cone or something sweet as a treat/something to do in the evenings. Now, we are eating good and exercising. It has been life changing, of course. We love to walk from our house to downtown. There are lots of little cafe’s and ice cream shops etc. It sure would be nice to be able to pop in one and get a keto ice cream or dessert! Oh well, a girl can dream!

    • Emily says:

      Posssibly, but you would only need 1/4 to 1/3 the amount. (be careful though because coconut flour is extremely drying). I would probably add a little extra oil.
      Good luck! Let me know how it goes!
