Cake Batter Protein Balls

Cake Batter Protein Balls Recipe

January 21, 2022

Made with protein powder, these Cake Batter Protein Balls are a treat any time of day! Each ball has more than 8 grams of protein!

Protein powder has come a long way in the past decade. I remember trying protein powder in the late ’90s and you really had to choke it down. Now, not only is it delicious, but there are some brands that might as well be dessert!

I’ve made cake batter chaffles, these protein balls, and soon to publish cake batter protein pudding.

For these cake batter protein balls, I used vanilla protein powder. I also used almond butter. The almond butter has a taste that goes so well with cake batter flavoring. At least, I think it’s better than peanut butter.

I used oats, in order to keep them gluten-free and give them the structure to turn them into balls. I also used a touch of almond milk to make the dough.
