No bake, high protein energy bites that taste like cake batter.  Great for a quick treat or energizing Paleo snack.




Coating (optional)


  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine protein powder, baking soda, salt, melted coconut butter, honey and vanilla.  Mix well.
  2. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time until mixture can be rolled into balls*
  3. Mix in sprinkles.
  4. Roll dough into balls, about 1 tablespoon in size.
  5. Place balls in freezer for at least 1 hour to set**
  6. In a small saucepan, melt coconut butter over low heat.  Once fully melted, remove from heat and mix in powdered monk fruit.
  7. Dip the balls into the melted cacao butter and place on a sheet of parchment paper to set.  Optional: top with additional sprinkles.
  8. Store in fridge or freezer.


*Use more or less water as needed.  Mixing dough with hands works best.

**Freezing the balls makes it easier to dip them in cacao butter.
