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. 🙂
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
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.
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.
Simple, Healthy Ingredients
FRESH vs FROZEN Berries
No fresh berries? No problem. You can thaw frozen blueberries to use in this recipe.
Jus 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! (AND it makes these a really pretty shade of purple!!)
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 😉
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.
