These birthday cake energy bites are a delicious grab-n-go breakfast or snack! Packed with fiber, healthy fats, and whole-grains, and filled with rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips for a little fun twist.
I share a lot of baked goods on my blog, and most people think I snack on cookies and muffins all day long. I know, I know, the dream life.
Reality is that I end up freezing a lot of the baked treats to enjoy as a dessert, or share them with friends and family. Personally, I like to snack on things that will actually keep me full and satisfied, while also enjoying cookies from time to time.
Energy bites tend to hold me over between meals, and have so many different variations to them. I love stocking my fridge and freezer with some form of energy bite. They’e an easy snack to have on hand, and so simple to make!
These bites are packed with whole grains, and truly have that vanilla cookie flavor from the oats and cashews. I love working with cashew butter when I want a subtle tasting nut butter that’s slightly sweet.
They’re lightly sweetened from dates and pure maple syrup, and filled with healthy fats to help keep you full.
What you’ll need to make Birthday Cake Energy Bites
ROLLED OATS: oats are a rich source of fiber, protein and iron. They’re loaded with important vitamins and minerals, like phosphorous, magnesium, zinc and folate
RAW CASHEWS: the subtle, creamy taste of raw cashews really helps give these energy bites that cookie flavor. They’re also a good source of omega-3 fats, protein, and vitamin E
CASHEW BUTTER– I highly suggest sticking to cashew butter for this recipe, but if you need a substitute, almond butter would be a good option!
MEDJOOL DATES– these sweet, caramel like dates are a great source of potassium, fiber, and calcium
PURE MAPLE SYRUP
RAINBOW SPRINKLES– I usually grab what’s available at the store, or order mine from amazon
WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS– I love the Trader Joe’s white chocolate, but if you need a dairy-free version you can find some on amazon
Everything gets processed in a blender or food processor, and then rolled into balls. I love them straight out of the fridge to keep them slightly soft, but they can be frozen and stored for up to 3 months!
PRO TIP: wet your hands before rolling the bites. The batter may be sticky, but wet hands help ease the process!
