Here's a recipe for raw food apple cider donut holes that are delicious, nutritious, and easy to make. These raw food apple cider donut holes are a guilt-free and nutritious alternative to traditional fried donuts.

For the Donut Holes:

  • 1 cup raw almonds

  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted

  • 1/2 cup dried apples

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1-2 tablespoons apple cider (add more as needed for consistency)

For the Coating:

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Start by soaking the dried apples in warm water for about 15-20 minutes to soften them. Drain and pat them dry.

  2. Blend the Donut Holes Mixture: In a food processor, combine the raw almonds, soaked dried apples, pitted dates, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. Blend until the mixture forms a sticky dough-like consistency. If the mixture seems too dry, add apple cider, one tablespoon at a time, until you achieve the desired consistency.

  3. Shape the Donut Holes: Scoop out small portions of the dough and roll them into bite-sized balls to create your donut holes. Place them on a plate or tray lined with parchment paper.

  4. Prepare the Coating: In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut flour, coconut sugar, and ground cinnamon to create the coating.

  5. Coat the Donut Holes: Roll each donut hole in the coating mixture until they are evenly coated. You can gently press the coating onto the surface to make it stick better.

  6. Chill and Serve: Place the coated donut holes in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to firm up. This helps them hold their shape and enhances their flavor. After chilling, your raw apple cider donut holes are ready to enjoy!. Alternatively, you could dehydrate these to get a nice crust.

  7. Optional: Caramel Drizzle For an extra touch of sweetness, you can make a simple raw caramel drizzle by blending soaked dates with a little water until smooth. Drizzle it over the donut holes before serving.

  8. Serve: Arrange your apple cider donut holes on a plate or platter and serve them as a delightful and healthy treat.
