Protein Cake Bites by TJWELLNESS

Protein Cake Bites – NO BAKE

These Protein Cake Bites are almost too good to be true! They are gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, paleo and vegan!
They are super delicious, even the kids love them, and they have a good portion of protein, good fats and very satisfying.

To keep the recipe dairy-free, paleo and vegan, – make sure to use coconut oil and substitute peanut butter with almond butter.

Ingredients

Base:

5 dl Almond flour
1.25 dl Peanut butter
1/4 tsp Salt
1.25 dl protein powder or flax meal
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1.25 dl Coconut oil or butter
2 tsp Vanilla extract

Topping:

1 dl coconut oil
1Tbsp cocoa powder (sugar free)
1tsp vanilla extract

Base:
Add all the ingredients to a food-processor. Process until well combined to form a thick, yet crunchy paste. You might have to add a few tablespoons of water, so it won’t be too dry.
Press the mixture into an 16×16 cm square pan, you can be flexible though, bigger pan gives thinner cakebites, smaller gives thicker ;).
Place in refrigerator to chill, while making the topping.

Topping:
Whisk together all the ingredients, it should have a consistency like a paste, so you might have to refrigerate for a few minutes.

Spread topping on the base.

Tip: Sprinkle with a bit of salt (in my opinion this makes the topping so much more delicious).

Refrigerate until its all set, then cut into squares.

 

Enjoy!
