No Bake Blueberry Muffin Donut Holes

This recipe for No Bake Blueberry Muffin Donut Holes turns your favorite energy ball into a healthy donut hole with a coconut maple glaze. Vegan, gluten-free and absolutely delicious. 

Woah! I’m not sure how it happened, but it’s already the end of September and I noticed yesterday that Target has Christmas lights for sale in their seasonal section… what the heck?!? If that’s not a sign summer is over, I don’t know what is.

I’m still getting over the fact that blueberry season has come and gone this year. Luckily we can still enjoy the flavors of blueberries using dried berries, which are readily available year-round. Hello blueberry muffin larabar balls! Those babies are so good and these little blueberry muffin donut holes are a take on that recipe. Just made a bit more doughy with the addition of rolled oats and covered in a coconut maple glaze that make them donut hole-ish.

Of course, they don’t taste 100% like a donut hole because well, they’re not made of fried dough, but I’m still calling them donut holes because they look just like a Dunkin’ Donuts munchkin to me.

I personally loved them as an afternoon snack while sipping on a cold-brew iced coffee.

Remember my post about cutting back on coffee? I lasted about 3 weeks and now I back on the coffee train. It’s so hard because I love coffee, but I did another cortisol test (a more detailed 24-hour test) a couple weeks ago so if my levels are high I’ll probably try to cut back again. Fingers crossed my levels are normal and I don’t have to worry about it.

Back to these donut holes, I have a feeling that you’re going to love them. They’re super easy to whip up and the coconut maple glaze makes them more of a treat than your standard energy bite. In the next few weeks I’m thinking I’ll make a fall version using my apple pie larabar balls or pumpkin pie larabar balls, but for now I’ll be munching on these little blueberry holes with my cold brew. Come join me!

Description

Turn your favorite blueberry muffin energy ball into a healthy donut hole with a coconut maple glaze.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates (about 12)
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 3/4 cup dried blueberries
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • pinch of sea salt

Coconut Maple Glaze

  • 3 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Add dates, cashews, blueberries, oats, vanilla, lemon juice and sea salt into your food processor (affiliate link) and pulse until a dough forms. You may need to stop the machine and scrape the sides once or twice, but this should take about 5 minutes.
  2. Scoop dough from food processor (affiliate link) and roll into small balls using your hands. Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
  3. In a shallow bowl, mix melted coconut oil with maple syrup.
  4. Roll each ball into the coconut oil and maple mixture and place back in the freezer to harden. Continue to coat the donut holes and re-freeze until each donut hole has a gooey coconut maple glaze! We did three rounds of coating and freezing. Store donut holes in your refrigerator.

  1. How long did you put them back in the freezer for between each coating? Mine don’t seem to be getting that white glaz-y look. I’m sure they will taste good either way but would love to know what I’m doing wrong. Thanks!

  2. Didnt have dried blueberries on hand so made them with apricots instead. Delicious! Thanks for a great recipe!

  3. I quit coffee about 3 months ago. I now get my caffeine from black English breakfast tea. I prefer Tetley because I got used to it while deployed with many Brits in Iraq and Afghanistan. It gives you the caffeine you need plus is higher in antioxidants than coffee. If you need a little boost during the day, try a mug of green tea.

    I intend to try your recipe after my next grocery run. Thanks!!

  4. Made these last night! What kind of food processor do you recommend for making these? I only have an itty bitty food processor that couldn’t hold all the ingredients at once, so I gave it a try in our Vitamix.. I finally found something that the Vitamix can’t handle! ha! I ended up doing small batches in my food processor, but I wasn’t able to get the consistency I was looking for.

    The taste of these babies are phenomenal!

  5. These looks so great! I’m missing blueberry season, too, but I saw some good ones at the store recently! Can’t imagine giving up coffee! I’m trying to cut back on sugar and that’s hard! I’m pinning this now 🙂

  6. I made these, and they turned out great! I coated mine twice, and the “glaze” really was somewhat reminiscent of what you would expect from a fried donut hole. I definitely recommend these!

  7. Hi Brittany,
    Can you please clarify what you meant by three rounds of coating and freezing. Did you coat each blueberry bite 3 times or did you do three batches?

  8. I just found your blog and I love it! I definitely want to try these and the blueberry muffin larabar balls. Now if I could just get my husband to eat healthier foods it would be much easier.

  9. These are so pretty and LOOK yummy! I must try=) fingers cross for good test results and YAY for coffee drinkers like me;) I love your posts, Brit!

  10. Wishing you all the luck on a great test result! I would have the worst time trying to quit coffee! I generally only drink it at breakfast, unless Matt and I are feeling wild on a Friday or Saturday night. 😉 I also will splurge on the occasional local coffee shop cappuccino/latte/coffee. So all this to say you will be a-ok and will continue to be able to enjoy it, especially with this delicious recipe! Can’t wait to try them.
