Gluten-Free Cocoa Almond Donut Holes

These donut holes have been a work in progress all week.  I love how they look just like the ones you can purchase at the store but these are actually low carb, gluten-free and chocolate.  It's like a dream come true! 

I actually had the day off from school today so I decided to give the donut holes another try.  I usually bake during nap time now since my toddler has a sudden interest in stirring so things can get crazy in the kitchen pretty quickly.  I think letting him "help out" with the pancake mix in the weekends started it.  It's cute, but, like I said, it can get crazy pretty quickly.  Here is the recipe I used for these donut holes:

3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 scoop Naturade pea protein powder
1.5 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 tbsp hemp seeds
2 tbsp almond butter
4 oz unsweetened applesauce
1 egg
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder

These donut holes are low in carbs and have no added sugar.  They are naturally sweetened with the applesauce.  They are loaded with protein and also contain hemp seeds which are rich in healthy fats, minerals and protein.  The mix is enough for 12 donut holes.  Mix the dry and wet ingredients separately and then combine together.  I used 1.5 tbsp of mix per donut hole. 

The donut holes are moist and flavorful and will not crumble in your hand.  They are also actually healthy for you! You can store them in the fridge for a few days.

Hope you enjoyed this post.  Thank you for reading!
