This recipe is from my wife Angel, who loves to make food, home and body care recipes that support people’s journey to optimal health.
Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes Ingredients
3 heaping tbsp vanilla protein powder
8 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp vanilla
Pinch of pink salt
4-5 tbsp filtered water
2 squirts cinnamon flavored liquid stevia
2 squirts vanilla cream flavored liquid stevia
1 tbsp pumpkin spice mix
1 tbsp chopped pecans
3 tbsp sprouted pumpkin seeds
3 tbsp shredded coconut flakes
Servings: Makes about 12-15 balls
Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes Instructions:
1. Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl (you may need to put the coconut butter in convention oven for 5 mins on low heat to melt it a bit)
2. Mix all ingredients (easiest if you use your hands)
3. Get about a tbsp amount and pat into a ball
4. Place onto a glass container or plate
5. When all the balls are rolled, but the container in the refrigerator for about 30 mins
(Once they are ready, you may want to keep this in a closed container to prevent the dough from becoming dry.)
Dr Jockers Comments:
This is one of our favorite family snacks. It is loaded with clean protein, good fats, anti-oxidants and fiber for a perfect snack or meal replacement. The ingredients in here will help you reduce inflammation, balance your hormones, burn fat and build lean body tissue.
Coconut fats are rich in medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that help to form ketones. We use stevia as our sweetener, which is 100 times stronger than sugar and has no effect on your blood sugar. I enjoy using our Gut Healing Protein with this as it is full of powerful anti-inflammatory compounds and is a hypoallergenic pea protein base.
Once you are finished making this, you want to put it in the refrigerator and the coconut butter hardens, forming a sort of donut glaze that tastes so good!
