protein cookie dough cake balls

These high protein cookie dough cake balls are sooo good and so easy to make! They make a delicious and nutritious snack and are high protein, gluten- free, and vegan. They’re packed with protein from the almond flour and protein powder, and the almond butter adds healthy fats.  They’re an easy snack to keep in the fridge and grab on the go, especially when you’re craving something sweet!

Feel free to customize the recipe by adding your favorite mix-ins or using a milk chocolate drizzle instead of white chocolate, add sprinkles on top, or anything else your heart desires!

– 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup (or any other liquid sweetener)

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour and protein powder. Stir until well combined.
