awesome recipe! definitely perfect for my afternoon treat when my sugar cravings hit.. love how guilt free the recipe is.. means i can have more than one at a time!
Sweet! I am so glad you enjoyed them!!
Thanks so much for the feedback!
With the coconut – are you processing until it’s coconut ‘butter’ consistency? If yes, what would be the equivalent amount of coconut butter to sub? These look great! Thanks.
Good question, but no, not processing it into a coconut butter, just processing the dried coconut flakes for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to turn them into a finer crumble. I really think the donuts remain more cake-like using this lightly processed coconut as compared to using a dense coconut butter. But I am sure you can play around it with, and it will likely taste delicious how ever you choose to prepare them!!
What a tasty and satisfying dessert! It’s great for my husband’s sweet tooth but I love it just as much because of all of the healthy ingredients! Thank you so much for sharing this healthy and delicious
