This is one of our favorite recipes! I can quickly throw these together for the boys to snack on in the afternoon or as dessert after dinner.
1 ¾ raw almonds
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 vanilla bean, scraped or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup dried pineapple, chopped (it's ok to skip this step if you don't have dried pineapple)
1 cup Medjool dates (or any other dates available)
1/3 cup plus ¼ shredded coconut
In food processor, place almonds, salt, and vanilla. Process into a fine powder. Slowly add chopped pineapple and dates mixing well. Place in a large bowl. Mix in 1/3 cup shredded coconut.
To serve, use your hands or an ice cream scooper to form donut holes. Roll holes in ¼ cup shredded coconut.
Recipe adapted from Ani Phyo's book, Ani's Raw Food Kitchen
Ani Phyo uses 2 cups of pineapple and dates but 1 cup of each is plenty in my experience.
Watch me make the donuts with Simon in this video....
