Birthday Cake Bites

This recipe is a real winner, because the kids went wild for it, and never suspected just how healthy these little treats are! They gobbled them down for breakfast or a quick snack and the whole batch disappeared in days. Just make sure you use a good quality protein powder that you enjoy the flavour of, because that makes a big difference to your final product. If you use a very sweet protein powder you may require less stevia, or other sweetener. These are allergy-friendly too, because they are gluten-free, soy, and nut-free.

  • Cake Bites
