Chocolate Donut Holes with Coconut Flour

Rolled donut holes


These simple bite size little chocolate donut holes are a healthy treat and a cinch to make.
You won't need any special equipment and can be enjoying one in no time. 

Who doesn't love a chocolate donut hole?
These are especially good because they are grain free, healthy and quite tasty.
They are made of coconut flour ( buy in the health store or online) and very quick and easy.

If you do not want to use coconut flour, any kind of gluten free flour or regular flour will work.
However, if you decide not to use the coconut flour, reduce the almond milk to 1 Tablespoon instead of 3 Tablespoons. However, there are health benefits to baking with coconut flour.

I like baking with coconut flour for many reasons.
  • Coconut flour is packed with fiber and therefore more filling and satisfying( The fiber also helps better elimination) 
  • Coconut flour is tasty- has a unique appealing taste
  • Coconut flour requires a lot more liquid in the recipe which makes for a moist, silky product. 
  • Coconut flour is rich in nutrients 
  • Coconut flour is grain and gluten free
  • Coconut flour is lower in carbs which doesn't raise insulin levels as high as reg flour
In addition, coconut flour is very easy to use to bake cookies, cake, and these donut holes.

I like baking with coconut sugar because: 
  • It is lower in carbohydrates than brown sugar or regular sugar
  • It creates less of an insulin spike
  • It contains nutrients
