Raw Vegan Lucuma-Kissed Donut Holes

 

This recipe is full of super foods- almonds, dates, pineapple, sea salt, lucuma, and coconut... And,  it's amazing how their flavors and textures come together to create a healthier version of a favorite food- donut holes!  Bon Appetit! 

Inspired from a recipe in Ani's Raw Food Kitchen by Ani Phyo. 

Ingredients: 
1 and 3/4 c. raw almonds
1/2 tsp. sea or himalayan salt
1 vanilla bean, scraped or 1 tsp. extract
2 c. dried, unsulphured pineapple
2 c. pitted dates
3-4 T. lucuma powder
1 heaping scoop Sun Warrior Brown brand Sprouted Rice Vanilla protein powder
1 heaping T. coconut oil
2 T. Really Raw brand agave nectar
1/4 c. shredded coconut

Instructions:  In a food processor, place almonds, salt, and vanilla.  Process into a fine powder.  Slowly add chopped pineapple and dates, mixing well.  Add the protein powder, coconut oil, agave and agave nectar, continuing to mix until well incorporated.  Place the "dough" in a large bowl. 

To serve, use an ice cream scooper or spoon to form donut holes.  Roll holes into a small bowl of 1/4 c. shredded coconut. 

Enjoy!

Serving idea:  Have these with Gynostemma tea instead of traditional coffee- or even Teecino for a more reminiscent flavor!
