These donuts can be enjoyed right away or you can pop them into the dehydrator for 4-6 hours to give them a firmer exterior and to enhance the flavors by letting the warm air permeate the donuts, thus melding the ingredients together.
The cranberries add a wonderful sweet, chewiness to the donut, and the pumpkin spice skids in under the radar offering up a warming flavor note. But the one ingredient that really makes my taste buds fall over and swoon are the raw coconut crystals. They are the twin sister to brown sugar, but this sister is the healthy one!
Raw coconut crystals are made from… coconut sap. This sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35), diabetic-friendly, is an abundant source of minerals, 17 amino acids, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH.
Coconut crystals are made from 100% pure coconut tree sap that is grown without chemicals, pesticides, or herbicides. They are gluten-free, unbleached, unrefined, GMO-Free and vegan. Oh, and lets not forget this natural sap, is a raw, enzymatically alive product. It is low temperature vacuum evaporated only to remove excess moisture and allow for crystallization. By contrast, most brown sugar is boiled at temperatures up to 221 degrees F.
So as you can see, there are many great benefits to using raw coconut crystals… taste wise and health wise. If you haven’t tried it yet, I encourage you to do so.
