Delicious Air Fried Vegan Donut Balls

These air fried, vegan donuts are bite-sized balls of yum.  Using coconut sugar and with less fat than traditional donuts, these cinnamon flavoured snacks are an irresistible sweet treat. This recipe also uses aquafaba, the liquid from a can of cooked chickpeas, which acts as a great binding agent instead of egg or egg whites making this recipe perfect for vegans.

Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, they’re super simple to make.  Just make up the dough, roll it into balls, coat them in cinnamon and sugar, and air fry to perfection.  Done!

The Healthy Mummy’s new air fryer recipe range, as part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, has loads more of healthy air fried recipes that the whole family will love.
