Donut Holes



To make the donut holes:

  • Preheat your cake pop maker or oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium sauce pan, heat the chocolate chips and coconut milk over low heat just until melted, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Place the eggs in a mixing bowl and whisk on high until they are light and foamy.
  • Fold in the melted chocolate mixture.
  • Add the almond flour, cinnamon, baking powder, vanilla, and salt and mix well
  • Spoon the batter into the cavities of the cake pop maker or donut hole pan, filling to just above the rim.
  • Bake in the cake pop maker or preheated oven for 5 minutes before flipping and cooking for 2 more minutes.
  • Place the cooked donut holes on a plate and place in the freezer for 45 minutes.

To glaze:

  • Combine the coconut oil and honey in a small saucepan and heat over low heat, stirring constantly, just until melted.
  • Whisk in the vanilla extract, coconut milk, and cocoa powder if using.
  • Pour the glaze into a glass 1 cup measure and dunk each donut hole, placing back on the plate to set.
  • Dunk a second time if desired for a thicker coating of glaze.
  • If you'd like coconut covered donut holes, sprinkle them with toasted shredded coconut while the glaze is still wet.


  • This recipe makes a thick batter that is then baked in either a cake pop maker or a donut hole pan. If you don't have/don't want to buy either of those you can just use a mini cupcake pan. Your donut holes won't be round, but they'll be just as tasty!
  • You can add cocoa powder to the glaze to make a chocolate glaze or sprinkle the still-wet glazed donut holes with toasted shredded coconut if desired.
