Ingredients for No-Bake Birthday Cake Protein Balls

  • 1 stick butter, softened (Grass-fed butter is best!)
  • 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil, softened
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened almond butter
  • 2 cups almond flour (unblanched)  You could also use cashew butter or even peanut butter, but it will change the flavor slightly.
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder (I prefer Orgain)
  • 1 tsp Stevia (I prefer Sweet Leaf)
  • 2 tbsp of rainbow sprinkles, plus more for rolling (I like Watkins natural sprinkles)
  • dash of Himalayan pink salt (or sea salt)
  • Optional: 1 tsp of raw honey for extra sweetness

Directions for Birthday Cake Protein Bites

  1. Combine ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  2. Mix well until the ingredients form a creamy consistency. If they are too sticky to roll you can add more almond flour.
  3. Using your hands, roll the mixture into small, bite-sized balls. If desired, roll the balls in additional sprinkles for that extra festive touch.
  4. For best results, place the balls on a flat plate or cookie sheet and refrigerate for about an hour. This helps them firm up and prevents them from sticking together.
  5. Once the balls are firm, transfer them to an airtight container. Store them in the refrigerator for up to a week.

It really is that easy-peasy!  And to be honest, I don’t pull out my recipe card on this one.  I just toss every thing into the bowl and keep adding until I get the right consistency.  They turn out a little different every time, but as long as you’ve got that cake batter flavor and colorful sprinkles, you’d have a hard time going wrong!

I think these make a perfect snack for my growing kiddos. I love that they contain simple ingredients, healthy fats, and pack in so much protein.  And they even keep my boys full for a long time!

You can get creative and add in vanilla chips, flaxseed meal, collagen powder, or switch out your favorite protein powders.  This little snack is a tasty treat that your whole family will love!
