For the donuts, blend or food process the almonds, pecans, coconut shreds, sprouted buckwheat, salt, and raw carob or cacao powder until finely ground.
Add in dates and pulse until dough forms.
Remove from blender and shape into donuts or roll in your palms to make donut holes.
Set aside to dry out or dehydrate at less than 117 degrees F for an hour or so to firm up the exterior of your donuts.
For the glaze, mix together the almond butter, raw carob or cacao powder, and date soaking water to form a smooth paste.
