Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 0 mins
Total: 5 mins


  • 1 cup cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • cup vanilla protein powder
  • cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract optional, but adds a cakey flavor
  • 3 tablespoons sprinkles plus more for rolling
  • Pinch of 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. I like to use a rubber spatula for easiest mixing.
  • Fold in the sprinkles.
  • Scoop the dough and roll into roughly 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls. About 1 tbsp of dough.
  • 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. 
You can use any protein powder for this recipe. I highly recommend a vanilla protein for best flavor.
