  • 1 cup cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 3 tbsp sprinkles (plus more for rolling)
  • Pinch of sea salt


  • Add the cashew butter, vanilla, almond extract, and maple syrup to a bowl. Mix well. 
  • Add all remaining ingredients except the sprinkles and combine until a dough forms. Don't be afraid to use your hands!
  • Gently fold in the sprinkles with a wooden spoon. 
  • Take about a 1 1/2 half inch scoop of the dough and roll into balls. 
  • Roll the dough in additional sprinkles if desired. 
  • Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. 


The almond extract is a key ingredient in giving these energy balls a cake batter flavor, I don't recommend subbing it with anything else. 
These energy balls will last in the fridge for about 2 weeks or in the freezer for several months. 
You can use any protein powder for this recipe. I highly recommend a vanilla protein for best flavor.
