Healthy Chocolate Donut Holes

I have been craving chocolate lately.  I don’t normally deprive myself from what I am craving. Since  cleaning up my diet and tuning into my body, cravings have become an indicator that I am lacking something in my diet.  I try to figure out what it is I’m lacking, then eat the healthiest nutrient dense version of what it is, to satisfy my need.  However, I am doing a 28 Day Cleanse, so this is ALL mental

I decided to whipped up a cleanse friendly treat.  BUT there was a bit of a casualty…. my beloved Vitamix, Zippy (yes I named my Vitamix) crashed!!  We’ve shared 6 long years together.  I am truly crushed! She seems only to have enough oomph to mix up liquids.  I have used Zippy every day for the past 6 years, unless I was traveling and sometimes  she even traveled with me.  

I was able to complete my mission, however the batter wasn’t as smooth as I like it to be, but it tasted just as good!!! These Donut Holes go really well with a Bullet Proof Chaga Tea!  

There’s a link below to print of a PDF of the recipe.  

Ingredients: 

Directions: 

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine dates, black beans, chocolate protein powder, pumpkin seed butter, sea salt, and cacao powder in the bowl of your food processor. Process until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  3. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, then roll in unsweetened coconut flakes and place on the covered baking sheet.
  4. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to set. Enjoy! 3 balls equal one serving.

Chocolaty Blessing to you all!
