Blueberries and cream donut holes

 These are wonderfully creamy donut-y dough balls.  These donut hole dough balls are good!  I could have called them vegan dough balls, but donut holes sound so much more yummy!  And yet, these little balls could not be healthier.  With the proper choice of ingredients, they can have lots of fiber and protein and no grains whatsoever.  How's that for a healthy donut?

They're also super easy to make - you don't even need to bake or fry them!

To make these donut holes, you will need:
  • Coconut butter
  • Unflavored soy protein powder
  • Blueberry jam (I used sugar free Smuckers, for a fiber boost you could use Polaner); you'll want approximately equal quantities of the first three ingredients
  • Vanilla extract (optional)
  1. Microwave a few spoonfulls of coconut butter until melted.
  2. Add some soy protein powder to the liquid coconut butter and stir until absorbed.
  3. Stir in blueberry jam.  You should have a thick dough now.  If necessary, adjust quantities of soy protein powder and blueberry jam to get everything to the desired consistency.
  4. Roll dough into balls.
  5. Enjoy!
Note: these donut holes will harden if left in the fridge and will not taste like soft n' creamy donuts anymore.  You could make them into high protein vegan shortbread cookies if you plan to eat them later!
