Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! Well, my sister has officially arrived in MA, so that means I will be spending my weekend with her!

I love gingerbread and I love donut holes, so I decided to combine the two and Ta-Da! An amazingly delicious donut recipe! They are perfect with your morning tea or coffee! I hope you enjoy them!

Oh my goodness……..I didn’t even know that donut holes could taste THIS good!!! Plus they are healthy! These turned out exactly like a regular donut hole in texture! I was blown away at how good they turned out! I had a few myself and then brought the rest to work….where they didn’t last longer than a few minutes. Coffee and donuts on a Monday? PERFECT! 😉

    I am looking at the recipe and see 3 tablespoons of stevia? Is that right? I haven't used that much stevia -overall - in two years, let alone in one recipe. Maybe you mean swerve? Erythritol? Truvia? Thanks

        Hi Sarah - thanks so much for responding, but, I'm still confused and didn't really ask the question right. I haven't used the stevia from trader joe's, but, can only assume it measures like typical stevia. unless, trader joe's is a blend of stevia and something else? so, if there are 16 tablespoons of sugar in 1 cup of sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of stevia = 1 tablespoon of sugar? 3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon. then 3 tablespoons of stevia would equal how much sugar??? I can't quite figure how many cups of any other sweetener would equal 3 tablespoons of stevia. Would I measure 12 tablespoons of alternative sweetener or more? Stevia just doesn't measure equal with the other sweetener options out there. Aggggh.....HELP! Sorry to be so helpless in this conversion.....

    I got so excited when I saw this recipe this morning! I have never heard of a donut hole pan. I'm going to have to check out Homegoods. If not, I'll try my mini muffin pan. Thanks for the recipe! You are a baking genius ;)

    Made them this morning - and am thankful you showed grams for measurements! Otherwise, I'm sure I would have had way too much coconut flour in these. I couldn't get any sugar to stick to them after baking. not sure why. also, they felt moist, but, were very dry tasting, which seemed weird, but, this IS coconut flour. So, knowing that it can take a couple days to get dense and moist, I'm letting them sit in a baggie in the fridge for a couple days to try them again. The ginger should taste great with my bulletproof coffee!

  • These look so cute and delicious!! Love the idea of a donut hole pan I've not heard of them before.

  • I really need to experiment with coconut flour :)

  • Do you think it's possible to make these without a doughnut pan? I was thinking of making these this weekend and either using a regular baking sheet or rolling them in balls and putting them in a muffin tin.
