Protein packed, gluten-free, vegan donut holes! Never mind the health benefits of turmeric. Never mind that they are gluten-free and vegan. These babies are delicious!
I always try to make things that will help convert my daughter to veganism. I will get her almost there and then she will succumb to her addiction to mac and cheese. I really shouldn’t even label these little donut holes vegan. They are delicious cake donuts. We almost killed the entire batch while binge watching Season One of Game of Thrones. (Wait. No judgement. That too is an addiction.)
I used my Bella Cake Pop and Donut Hole Maker. Yeah, another unnecessary kitchen appliance, but I do love it. I got it a few years ago on Black Friday, so it was practically free. You know, so cheap I had to buy it. It’s so easy to use and I can pretend what I’m making is healthy because it’s baked. (And have you ever tried making cake pops the other way, crumbling cake and rolling it with frosting into little balls? I did. Once.)
If you’re not lucky enough to have your own Cake Pop and Donut Hole Maker, you could fry these or bake them. I haven’t tried it, but I know they would come out great!
The batter is really thick, more of a dough. I scooped them out with a spoon and rolled them into balls before dropping into the donut hole maker. We kept eating them, piping hot, before the glaze. So good!
This recipe will make about 2 dozen donut holes. It says 4 servings. It could be 2, it just depends on how hungry or guilty you are feeling.
