The Best Cake Batter Flavor Protein

The secret to this delicious recipe is using a great, sugar-free, gluten-free protein powder. I’ve tried so many different types of protein powder over my 5+ years of strength training/macros and here are my 2 favorites:

Clean Simple Eats – Cake batter protein

Iheart Macros- Cake batter protein (sells out quickly!)

Both of these protein powders are sweetened with stevia and monk fruit. They are not chalky at all and make a super delicious creamy shake.

The reason I use these protein powders is that they are specially formulated to be easier to digest than other protein powders on the market. I am very gluten-sensitive and have digestion problems with all other powders (even vegan) so these protein powders have been a game changer for me!

Note: You don’t HAVE to use cake batter protein to make this recipe. Any vanilla protein powder, or birthday cake flavor protein will work just fine!

ingredients for protein bites

Ingredients for Funfetti Protein Bites:

  • Cake batter, birthday cake or vanilla protein powder. Make sure your protein powder is gluten-free and sugar-free if you are tracking macros! If you are dairy-free use a plant-based protein powders
  • Almond flour or coconut flour. I personally like almond flour because it helps everything stick together better. Coconut flour is very dry and you’ll have to add extra liquid to get the right consistency.
  • Almond butter, creamy cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, or natural peanut butter. Really whichever is your favorite! I use Cashew butter OR vanilla almond RX butter)
  • Rainbow sprinkles or another kind of fun sprinkles (Your kids will think this is the coolest!) If you are keeping this sugar-free/organic you can purchase natural sprinkles.
  • Vanilla extract.
  • Maple syrup. Use your favorite all-natural pure maple syrup.
  • Quick Oats. I always use quick oats because they mix so much easier and are easier to digest.
  • Optional: White chocolate chips. I love adding a few chocolate chips. It doesn’t change the macros much and really adds a burst of sweetness that truly reminds me of funfetti cake! Just remember this adds sugar to the energy bites.

How to Make Funfetti Protein Balls

First, get all your ingredients together! Grab your measuring cups, spoons and a large bowl. You can mix this up in a food processor if you want a really smooth texture, but I usually just use my hands!

Second, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

If the dough is too thick/dry, add water or little splashes of almond milk until the dough forms a stickier consistency. You don’t want it to be runny but you want to be able to roll it into balls without crumbling.

With a tablespoonform balls from the birthday cake dough. I roll it between my palms until it is perfectly round.

tip- I like to roll the balls in additional rainbow sprinkles before freezing for a crunchy, colorful outer topping!

Place your delicious cake batter protein balls on a baking sheet and Freeze or refrigerate. After the birthday cake protein bites have firmed up, place in an airtight container until you are ready to eat! Enjoy!
