Cinnamon Donut Balls

A warm cinnamon donut reminds me of my childhood trips to the shopping centre when we were allowed to have a chocolate milkshake which always came with free donuts, those were the days! These cinnamon donut balls are a healthy protein ball designed to give you all the nostalgia of a warm cinnamon donut without the gluten and refined sugar.

Why eat Gluten free?

Eating gluten free is really a personal preference however I’m sure you have noticed that almost all of my recipes are gluten free. I personally do not think the way that modern meat is created and processed is healthy, but like I said, that is a personal decision. What I do know is that when I consume gluten/wheat. I often feel tired and sluggish approximately two to three days later.

While I’m not super strict on this when I am eating out, at home we don’t really have any gluten in the house, which means all of the recipes you see here are likely gluten free.

Healthy vegan snack balls

No baking required for this recipe making it totally kid friendly. So if you want to get those kiddos involved in the kitchen this is the perfect recipe to do so. It is also a good recipe for anyone who is short on time and needing some healthy snacks that store well and fit into your handbag/snack box for the office.

Cinnamon donut balls are vegan friendly, refined sugar free and the absolute perfect match for your mid morning coffee or your child’s 10,000th snack request.

A quick snack is a good snack

Did I mention these take only ten minutes to make? What are you waiting for, jump in the kitchen and get mixing!

Do you like Raw/No Bake Recipes?

If raw, no bake recipes are your thing, check out my raw brownies or cashew fudge recipe. Both recipes are tried and tested by many to be a proven crowd favourite. I find raw/no bake recipes particularly helpful on very hot summer days when I do not feel like turning the oven on.

Ingredients Required

Apple Sauce – If you are Australian based, SPC do a four pack of little tubs sold in Woolworths and Coles. I like this brand because it does not have any additional sweeteners, just apples.

Almond Butter – found in the jam/spreads isle of most supermarkets. My friends husband made this recipe once and spent a long time in the milk/butter section of the supermarket searching for almond butter LOL. Always look for 100% almond butter.

Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder – Happy Way or Macro Mike Almond Protein are usually my pick for vegan vanilla protein powders.

Cinnamon – I mean, this is obviously necessary for the flavour!

Stevia – granulated stevia or monk fruit is the perfect sugar replacement for this recipe to give that delicious cinnamon ‘sugar’ coating.

How to make Cinnamon Donut Balls

  • Combine apple sauce and almond butter until smooth.
  • Add coconut flour, stevia, cinnamon and protein powder. Mix well to combine.
  • Divide and roll the mixture into 6-8 balls.
  • Combine remaining stevia with ground cinnamon to create a cinnamon ‘sugar’ coating.
  • Roll each ball in the coating and serve.
  • Store in the fridge for up to one week.
