These Vegan Cashew Butter Cake Bites Are Protein-Packed

I once saw a meme that said we should hide nuclear codes in the body of recipes posts because no one actually reads them. So maybe I should expose my deepest darkest secrets in here and treat this like therapy if no one’s going to read this?! Probably a bad idea. But if you’re reading this, hi! I’m Claire and I’m happy you’re here with me on this little corner of the internet.

I’ve been in the process of starting up my health coaching business, running my blog, etc. But it’s proving to be a bit of a slower process than I thought, so I think getting another job may be in order. HMU if you want to hire me, lol! What’s been going on in your lives? I love to hear from you!

Anyway, despite the stress of life, these cake batter energy balls are a sure fire way to get me in a good mood. They come together in *literally* five minutes, and perfect for both kids and adults.

Why are energy balls good for you? I know the whole cake batter part of this recipe might not make it seem like these are all that nutritious, but I promise they are! Energy balls of all kinds are often made with simple ingredients like oats, nuts, dates, etc. Energy balls are often rich in plant-based protein and fiber — plus, they often have lots of healthy fats to keep you full for longer. They’re the perfect healthy, on-the-go snack! Can’t argue with that.


Need more simple plant-based recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth? You only need five ingredients to make these vegan caramel chocolates. Like my cake batter bites, they’re secretly packed with better-for-you ingredients, like cacao butter and lucuma powder — a superfood rich in vitamin B3, iron, zinc, calcium, and magnesium.

There’s also this four-ingredient dairy-free chocolate sauce perfect for drizzling over ice cream, brownies, pies, eating by the spoonful… Anything your heart desires, really. It’s made with hazelnut butter, gooey Medjool dates, raw cacao powder, and again, lucuma powder.
