Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes - No bake! (Paleo, Gluten Free & Vegan)
Two words: Pumpkin Donuts. What more do you need? And they are ‘no bake’, too. Perfect for those still hot summer days, and also when you really want the Fall flavors. And — it’s September, so technically it means that it’s the beginning of all things pumpkin (where people won’t super judge you). I think we could say these are "donuts with benefits"...
If you love pumpkin things, then you will surely love this recipe. I’m excited about Fall flavors, scents, recipes and, well, these donut holes.
Organic India has some new products on the market, and I’m excited about their Psyllium Pre & Probiotic Fiber Cinnamon Spice. Dietary fiber is great for digestive health, and it can also help lower cholesterol, too. Pre and probiotics nourish and support your gut. The Ayurvedic Herbs: Triphala, Amla, Bibhitaki and Haritaki can help with digestion and nutrient assimilation — so this is basically a bag filled with superhero ingredients. Add a spoonful to your smoothies, baked goods, baked breads or even hot cereal. Check out their products HERE and use code KRYSTEN at checkout!
Check out this recipe video I made! It's so easy to make these no bake donut holes!
You can sweeten these no bake donut holes as much or as little as you like. There’s a little natural sweetness in the cashew butter, roasted coconut butter and pumpkin but do whatever is best for your tastebuds. Keep in mind that you can use whatever sweetener you’d like. If you prefer a no calorie, low carb option then try monk fruit or stevia. If you prefer something else, try coconut sugar or maple sugar.
If you don’t have roasted coconut butter, use regular coconut butter, making sure it’s room temperature and runny.
You can swap cashew butter for almond or sunflower seed butter.
You can swap coconut flour for almond flour but increase the amount to about 1/2 a cup. Start with 1/4 cup and go from there before you add in the rest.
If you can’t find Organic India Psyllium Pre & Probiotic Fiber Cinnamon Spice, use flax seed meal with a pinch of cinnamon in place. It won’t have the amazing benefits that Organic India’s Psyllium Pre & Probiotic Fiber has. I have been trying the product the last few weeks, and I really like it.
