You don’t need a fancy cake pop mold to make these, just a mini muffin tin! Grain free, refined sugar free, paleo cinnamon sugar pumpkin donut holes! Light and soft when you bite into them. A healthy and easy to make crowd pleaser!
You guys, you guys!!! It’s fall!! And I am beeeyond stoked. Never did I think those words would come out of my mouth. I dreamed of an endless summer this year. But my trip to that beautiful island in the pacific did me good and prepped me for re-entry… Prepped me in that I got to surf and swim and hang with my pal long enough that I was ready to get back to work, haha. It was so timely, much needed, and a blessing to take a vacation after a grueling year!
So, with that being said, hiiiiii!!!!!! You guys, seriously, I missed all of you! There was a gap for a sec, not chatting online with you beautiful people and sharing recipes.
As some of you know, I took almost a month off of work this September to reset and vacation. Now that I am back, I’m currently very content in my little slice of PNW beauty, with the autumn colors busting forth and so freakin’ many pumpkin spices filling the air! So many red maple leaves on my bike rides, sooo many pumpkin desserts (waaaay too many you don’t even know 🙂 ). And as I switch gears and plunge head deep into sweater weather and rain boot season, these dope boots are next on my list.
But, you’re here for donut holes, I know. Me too. 🙂
These perfect little bite size pockets of pumpkin spice goodness have all the holiday feels written all over them. They are the perfect party pleaser. I brought a bowl of these donut holes to my friends house for all my (non-paleo eater) friends and they were devoured! So, I think I can say it’s safe to serve these to any type of house guest 😉
A few housekeeping notes on these donut holes:
You DON’T NEED a cake pop mold or donut hole maker- you can use a mini muffin pan like this one! Whoo hoo! Problem solved. But if you do want to make them into perfect round beauties, this is one similar to the mold I use. It comes in two pieces, is super easy to use and fill (and clean!!!), and they come out super easy!
Also, these store great in the freezer! I have also had them around on the counter for about five days, but then I popped them in the freezer. I don’t know how much longer after five days they would last…
One last thing. For paleoers, just roll these babies in coconut sugar. But if you aren’t paleo and want that gorgeous “crystally” aesthetic on then outside, go way out and use regular sugar.
