There are no shortage of gourmet doughnut bakeries and food trucks these days. But what sets Holey Grail Donuts apart is their work with Hawaii’s staple crop – taro. Beyond the nutrient packed purple root, Holey Grail taps into a number of antioxidant-rich superfoods common to menus on Oahu, including acai, cacao, chia, coffee, kale, and others that you more typically find at your local smoothie stand. But their leveraging of nutritious and sustainably sourced ingredients is no gimmick as they pull it off without sacrificing taste. In fact, their doughnuts are as delectable as they are distinctive.
