Classic celebration cake with a side of protein?! Say no more. These No-Bake Celebration Bites taste JUST like a classic vanilla birthday cake that you know and love, but have an ample amount of protein to keep you full and satisfied. Plus, they are also gluten-free, grain-free, and raw, and vegan-optional, so they are truly the perfect treat for anyone!
Let’s be honest: there are few things in life that are more delicious than a traditional birthday celebration cake. I’m talking a yellow sponge cake, with buttercream frosting and all of those delicious rainbow sprinkles. Sometimes, a craving for birthday cake strikes, but with the time and effort it takes to make a birthday cake, it feels a little ridiculous just to make one for no reason. Like always, I knew there had to be a better way… and in that search for a better way, my No-Bake Celebration Cake Bites were born.
These rich, creamy protein-packed bites are perfect for satisfying your cake cravings. The bites themselves have that perfect birthday cake-like flavor, and with the coating of rainbow sprinkles, they have that nostalgic taste that you know and love.
Plus, as I mentioned earlier, these bites are loaded with protein, but there’s a catch: you won’t find any protein powder in this recipe. Instead, these bites get their protein from collagen peptides, which are flavorless, texture-less, and are packed with healthy protein. If you wanted to make this recipe vegan or vegetarian-friendly, you could use a vegan protein powder in its place. However, I strongly recommend the collagen peptides, because they have the most neutral flavor. It’s why I use them in my Life Changing Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies – you would never guess that these chewy, chocolate chip cookies were packed with protein!
And if you’re looking for more ways to get some extra protein in, then my Lemon-Blueberry Protein Breakfast Bites are the perfect recipe for you. I love to prepare a batch of them, alongside these No Bake Celebration Bites, at the start of every week, so that I always have a protein-packed snack on-hand!
To make my No-Bake Celebration Cake Bites, it’s as simple as adding all of your ingredients to a food processor, and processing them until they form a smooth dough. Then, simply scoop the dough out, roll into 12-15 bite-sized balls, and freeze them for approximately 30 minutes, or until they’re solid. It’s truly so easy!
And while you’re waiting for your “bites” to solidify, why not get a head start on dinner? My Simple Lemon Garlic Pasta is the perfect 30 minute, quick-and-easy dinner recipe that comes together in practically no time!
