Devilishly Raw Donut Holes
Recipe by: Lisa Paris of RawBeets.com
Yields about 20 little devils, depending on size.
1 pound Medjool dates, pitted
2 ¼ cups dried or shredded coconut
Pit the dates and reserve a ¼ cup of the coconut in a small bowl (this will be used for rolling later).
Combine pitted dates, the rest of the coconut (2 cups), and a couple dashes sea salt in a food processor, fitted with the “s” blade. Pulse for 30 seconds to a minute or until a dough like consistency has formed.
Roll the dough into one-inch balls, coating them in the reserved coconut.
That’s all there is to it! Note: These little guys keep best when refrigerated.
