Two Raw Donut Recipes: Raw Chocolate Donut Bits and Raw Mango Sunflower Energy Balls

Who ever said donuts had to be fried and filled with sugar to be tasty never tried these. Raw donut recipes are all the rage, filled with nutritious, health promoting ingredients. I dare you to just eat one.

Even indulging on one coffee donut can produce unwanted weight gain and a general feeling of sluggishness. Raw donuts will actually give you energy rather than take it away. Once more raw foods aficionados say they are usually first attracted to this type of donut because the recipes do not contain wheat, refined sugar, eggs or dairy products, which eliminates the need to work around several food sensitivities.

Raw Chocolate Donut Bits

1/2 cup organic almonds
1/2 cup pecans
1/4 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
1/4 cup raw shelled hemp seeds
1/4 cup cocoa powder
4 soft pitted dates
1 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla
dash of sea salt

In a food processor, combine almonds, pecans, coconut and hemp seeds. Process until a fairly fine flour is formed. Add cocoa, dates, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and sea salt. Process again, to form a loose dough. Shape the dough into mini donut rounds. Let the donuts sit on a cooling rack for 2 hours to firm up the outside (inside will remain soft). Refrigerate leftovers.

Raw Mango Sunflower Energy Balls

1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
2/3 cup dates
2/3 cup dried mango
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch salt

Place everything into a food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together in a cohesive and slightly-sticky ball. Roll into balls and store in the freezer. (Or optionally roll in shredded coconut and then store in the freezer.
