Raw Cinnamon Doughnut Holes

I grew up on Entenmanns Donut Holes Pop’ems. I even Googled them for inspiration when creating this recipe, salivating at the images on my screen until I scrolled down to the list of ingredients: sugar, wheat flour, palm oil, soybean oil, corn starch, corn syrup solids and all sorts of unpronounceable additives. My stomach began churning at the thought of all those gut-growing, health-destroying and immune system repressing ingredients.

So, I set myself a goal: create scrumptious, cinnamon doughnut holes which are so ridiculously good you’ll never want to reach for those unhealthy bad boys again. Dare I say it, I think I did it. Voila. Presenting my better than that Entenmanns crap, raw cinnamon doughnut holes to make your heart happy — and your health even more so.
