Gingerbread Donut Holes

What is it about gingerbread that’s just so darn comforting? – Especially during the holiday season.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a gingerbread fan all year long. So, during the holidays I jump on the opportunity to make all things gingerbread!

Gingerbread Donut Holes

Enter, these Gingerbread Donut Holes. Inspired by the powdered sugar donuts we all enjoy as kids (I know you know which ones I’m talking about), this recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, and made with Vanilla Digestive Support Protein from Nuzest.

(Ya’ll, if you haven’t tried Nuzest yet WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?! I seriously use them for everything, and because I love them so much they let me give you a code (thekellykathleen) to help save you money. No pressure to use it if you don’t want, but the more saving the better in my opinion!)

This recipe is great, because you don’t even have to turn the oven on! Just combine your ingredients, roll the dough into individual donut holes, and bake them for 6ish minutes. Then, toss them in the sugary coating, and enjoy!

I love to serve them in the morning with my coffee. If I’m lucky I can get a few indulgent bites in before the kids are up.

Dying to tell everyone you made this recipe and loved it?? Don’t forget to share a picture and tag @thekellykathleen so that I can profess my love to you and re-share it for all to see!

    Can these be oven baked? If so, what temperature?

      They surely can! I would try 350 degrees and play around with the timing a bit 🙂
