Baked doughnut-like holes

Last week it was a very busy week for us… I didn’t have much time and simultaneously, I had  bunch of ideas! Like these nights,that you don’t think anything else,while you are ready to sleep,but what to cook for the next day..

We were planning Anna’s first birthday and a lot of beautiful ideas came to our minds! Colorful cake and balloons,games for the kids… Talking about birthdays,yesterday,we attend to a friend’s  baby boy’s first birthday and it was great! The party took place at the park,a lot of music,great food (Gluten Free!!) and kids were playing!

So, the last week I wanted to make doughnut holes. I wanted to make an easy recipe,though without dozens of ingredients that sound more like scientific terms…! Like it or not,that’s what I have to eat…These “scientific terms”.. But I’m OK with that! The recipe that I found is easy,and the doughnuts look like coconut doughnuts- cake. That’s why I wrote it as doughnut-like holes!

We’ll need:

  • 1/4 sugar
  • 1/4 coconut oil,or regular butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. GF vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • powdered sugar and cocoa powder to roll the doughnuts

Method:

Preheat the oven at 350 F.

In a medium bowl,cream  together,the first 4 ingredients in an electric hand mixer. Add egg and almond milk and mix thoroughly for about 2-3 minutes,in a medium speed.

Sift in coconut flour and stir to combine. Let dough sit for a minute and shape it into 10-12 1-inch balls.

Place evenly on baking dish and bake for 13 minutes. Let cool and roll them into the powdered sugar and the cocoa powder.

*I put a small piece of pear in each ball.

**Put them in the fridge for 1 hour and then eat them. There are so moist and delicious!
