Cinnamon & Coconut Sugar Toppings
Or would you prefer Chocolate Doughnuts?
Doughnut Holes are quick and easy to prepare. Prepare the batter, roll them in a cinnamon and coconut sugar mixture, bake! Follow the detailed recipe below! When choosing to make the chocolate topped doughnut hole, you will want to bake the doughnut holes plain and top with melted chocolate chips.
Space about a inch apart on unbleached parchment paper. They will rise slightly. If you desire the true round shape of a doughnut hole, I would recommend using room temperature butter. As soon as the butter begins to melt, it will soften the batter.

Grain Free Doughnut Holes
- 1/2 c. organic butter
- 1/4 c. coconut sugar
- 1/4 c. Xyli brand xylitol (corn-free) or coconut sugar
- 3/4 c. arrowroot flour
- 1/3 c. coconut flour Nutiva brand
- 1 large egg, organic
- 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
- 1 T. ground cinnamon, organic set aside
- 1 T. coconut sugar set aside
- 1/4-1/2 c. Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate chips set aside
Preheat oven to 350°. In a small sauce pan, partially melt your butter. (If possible, room temperature soft butter is ideal.) Place butter in a mixing bowl. Add coconut sugar and xyli. Using a hand mixer, beat until creamy.
Add the vanilla extract, sea salt and egg. Beat until mixed together.
Add coconut flour and arrowroot flour. Beat until mixture is smooth. Set aside for 1-2 minutes. This allows for the batter to firm up.
Line a large baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
In a small bowl, add the 1 T. of cinnamon and 1 T. of coconut sugar. Stir. Make 12 tablespoon size "doughnut holes" and roll them in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place them on the parchment paper.
Make 12 tablespoon size doughnut holes and leave them plain. Place them on the parchment paper. NOTE: If your batter is slightly sticky, you may dip your fingers in tapioca flour to keep the holes from sticking to your hands.
Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes. The bottoms of the doughnut holes will appear slightly brown. Be careful not to over bake, as this will dry out the holes.
Cool on a wire rack. Once the 12 plain ones are cool, begin to melt Enjoy Life chocolate chips in a small sauce pan on low heat. Stir the chocolate chips until they are melted. Using a butter knife or frosting knife apply the chocolate to the plain doughnut holes. Let them cool on a wire rack.
Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days in the pantry. Up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
