Ingredients & Directions

Recipe Ingredients


Yield: 6 Powdered Donuts (6 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: Blender, mixing bowl, baking tray, parchment paper, oven
Date Paste
  • 20-25 dates, pitted
  • water
  • 2 cups oat flour
  • ~1 cup water
  • (optional) 2 tbsp vanilla bean powder
  • (optional) dash of sea salt
Powdered Coating
  • 1 tbsp tapioca starch or coconut shreds, blended
Recipe Directions


  • Preheat oven to 350°F or 180°C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Create the date paste by putting the pitted dates into a high speed blender with about ¼ cup water. Blend with water until a paste is created, adding a little water at a time to help it blend into the paste. The paste is ready when it's smooth, with no chunks of date left.
  • Combine in a mixing bowl the date paste, oat flour, vanilla bean (if using), salt (if using), and as much water as needed to create a dough like consistency. You might use about 1 cup of water or it might be less, to start off with less and add more if needed.
  • Form the dough into mini donut shapes with your hands and place on the baking sheet. You should get 4-6 donuts.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes until the texture looks cake-like.
  • Let these cool for 15 minutes after removing from the oven. Then coat each with your choice of tapioca starch or blended coconut shreds for a powdered sugar-like texture.

For a traditional coating, you could of course use powdered sugar.
