For the donuts

  • 1 medium carrot
  • raw pumpkin
  • ½ cup of oats, soaked overnight
  • 7 dates, seedless, soaked 
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey

For the topping:

  • 1 small carrot
  • ¼ cup of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of raw honey
  • a silicone mold for donuts


Peel the carrots and pumpkin. Grate them on the finer side of the cheese grater. Then place them in a large bowl with the oatmeal, seedless dates, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, and raw honey. Knead until you get a compact dough that comes easily off your hands. Fill the cavities of the donut mold with the dough and compact it. Put the molds in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Using the spiralizer, make some thin ribbons with carrots to decorate the donuts. Mix coconut oil with raw honey. Serve the donuts decorated with coconut oil and carrot bits.
