This one is not so much a new recipe either--but it is a new adaptation of an old recipe. Since I have received several snotty comments lately about not posting every recipe, I will include this variation along with the original. I want to take a minute to thank those of you who sent notes of support to me. I do get hurt when readers get all bent out of shape about my promotion of my cookbooks. Afterall, I do say that this blog is a companion to my Diner e-book. It is a companion to our Low Carbing Among Friends series as well. I certainly don't promote my blog as a free recipe page, although there are hundreds of free recipes. Go figure. I suppose turning on my computer after a tough day, it is even harder to see those comments. Thankfully I have my faithful followers. Your nice comments keep me going.
These were tasty. Like my original recipe, these are made with coconut flour. They make the texture really similar to those packaged Gems. I made doughnut holes this time, but if you want to turn on the oven, the doughnut pan would work too. I used my little cakeball machine this morning. Quicker and less heat. Over hundred again here. I hate summer heat.
The secret ingredient today was the addition of Cinnamon Danish Swirl flavoring drops by Capella. This is one of my favorite flavors. I add it to my coffee sometimes too. Especially if I have a second cup. You can omit this, and add any flavoring you like. This is a very versatile recipe.
Cinnamon Danish Doughnut Holes
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking soda
2 packets sugar substitute
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 tbsp any favor Da Vinci® Sugar Free syrup (30 mL)
1/4 cup coconut oil warmed (60 mL)
25 drops Capella Cinnamon Danish Swirl Flavoring
2 tbsp powdered sweetener
1 tsp water
5 drops Capella Cinnamon Danish Swirl Flavoring
Preheat cakeball maker. Spray with cooking spray or coat with melted coconut oil.
In a small bowl, combine the coconut flour, salt, sweetener, baking soda and cinnamon. Stir the eggs, syrup and coconut oil into the dry ingredients. Mix until combined.If your eggs are cold, place the mixture into the microwave oven for 20 seconds to remelt the coconut oil and thin the batter.
Spoon half the batter into the cakeball maker. Close the lid and bake for 5 - 7 minutes.
Make the glaze by combining the powdered sweetener, water and flavoring drops. Dip the holes into the glaze, then sprinkle with additional cinnamon.
John really appreciated these this morning, even though I did serve them with a side of pre-cooked sausage. Again. I thought I should share a bit of my newest project with you. Here at the end of the post, so that if you don't give a hoot, you can just move on. This is the project I was working on at the school yesterday. It is for our literature room and library. The mural is flanked by couches so the teens can sit and read or hold book discussions. It reads, "Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none." Seemed fitting for today. Thanks, Shakespeare.
