Sweet Debbie's Organic Treats
Makes about 20 donut holes

There is a misconception out there that the coconut is a tree nut because it ends with the letters “n-u-t” and grows on a “t-r-e-e.” But I assure you the coconut is a drupe, which means it’s a fibrous, one-seeded piece of fruit. So next time someone mistakenly declares that coconuts are tree nuts, you should ask them if donuts are “n-u-t-s,” as well.

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan with parchment paper.

  • Step 2

    Whisk together the two flours, shredded coconut, baking powder, guar gum and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle.

  • Step 3

    Microwave the coconut nectar and coconut oil in a 2-cup measuring cup for 20 seconds. Add the coconut milk, vanilla and stevia and stir to combine. Pour into the flour mixture and stir until the liquid is absorbed.

  • Step 4

    Take about ½ tablespoon of the dough and shape it into a ball. Place the ball on the prepared pan. Repeat until you have used up all the dough.

  • Step 5

    Pour the shredded coconut into a small bowl and the coconut milk into a cup. Dip the dough balls, one by one, in the coconut milk, roll them around in the shredded coconut and place them about 2 inches apart on the prepared pan.

  • Step 6

    Bake the donut holes for 12 to 13 minutes, or until they bounce back slightly to the touch. Rotate the pan from front to back after about 9 minutes of baking.

  • Step 7

    Transfer the pan from the oven to a wire rack and let sit for 10 minutes before removing the donut holes to cool completely.

    Keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or wrap individually and freeze for up to 3 months.
