raw doughnut holes recipe

this morning i saw a picture of some fresh donuts, & started craving a warm doughnut! the kind we used to get, once in a while, in brooklyn & had with a cup of strong black coffee.
since i don't know of anything even close to that in fresno, i started looking up recipes for donuts, thinking i'd just make some.
then i realized i didn't have any flour (or any other ingredient for real donuts, ha).
so then i looked at numerous raw doughnut hole recipes, &, well, ended up creating my own!
they turned out great!

i wouldn't call them "doughnuts" tho, maybe more like... soft nutty circular sweet thingies

(raw) soft nutty circular sweet thingies

1 c mixed nuts (hazel, cashew, almond)
handful of flax seeds
(roughly) 1 cup pitted dates
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp coconut oil 
pinch of sea salt

put the nuts in a food processor, pulverize, add the dates.
 after it's all mixed well together add the coconut butter & oil. combine.
make little donut-hole looking shapes. roll them around in the coconut sugar & cinnamon. 

enjoy with a hot, black cup of joe!
 ps. i made this little bowl! very proud. 

 ok. bye.
