Baked Jelly-Filled Donut Holes

Servings: 12 donut holes
Prep Time: 45 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
These 4-ingredient Jelly-Filled Donut Holes will give you life!  They're baked, not fried, and totally guilt-free.  They taste as unhealthy and rich and decadent as regular donuts, you'd never guess that they're low sugar, low fat, and vegan.  You're gonna love 'em!



  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (alternatively, you can use a mini muffin pan).
  • Open the tube of crescent rolls and place the dough in between 2 silicone baking mats.  Roll the dough out until ¼" thick.
  • Use a 3” circle cookie cutter to punch out circles in the dough (I got 9 circles, and then rerolled the remaining dough to get a total of 12 circles).
  • Form the dough into balls as if you were filling them with something (like stuffed crescent roll balls).  Pinch the edges of the dough together and give it a small twist to make sure the ball is sealed.  Flip over and the surface of the ball should be round and smooth.
  • Place the balls on the cookie sheet or in the mini muffin pan seam-side down.  Bake on the prepared cookie sheet for ~13 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.  Let cool completely.
  • Prepare a piping bag with small round tip.  Use a thick round skewer (or sturdy straw or other round object) to pierce a hole in the side of the crescent ball.  Don't pierce through the other end of the ball, just stop when you feel a bulge on the other side.
  • Fill the piping bag with the strawberry spread and fill the crescent balls with the jam.
  • Lightly brush the melted coconut oil over a donut holes, then toss in the powdered erythritol.  Repeat with the rest of the crescent balls.  Serve and enjoy!
