    Ever since I found the cake batter extract at Walmart the other day (Amazon link here) I’ve been obsessed with finding new ways to use it. I’ve made cake batter chaffles, these protein balls, and soon to publish cake batter protein pudding.

    For these cake batter protein balls, I used vanilla protein powder. I’ve been using the 130 calorie vanilla Optimum Nutrition from Costco.

    I also used almond butter. The almond butter has a taste that goes so well with cake batter flavoring. At least, I think it’s better than peanut butter.

    I used oats, in order to keep them gluten free and give them the structure to turn them into balls.

    I also used a touch of almond milk to make the dough.

    Once the dough is mixed, form them into balls. You can also form them into bars if you prefer.

    After all the ball dough is mixed up and formed, each protein ball was

    • 101 calories
    • 8.5 grams of protein
    • 6.3 grams carbs
    • and 5.4 grams fat.

    And yes- I ATE ALL 4 OF THEM!

    Protein powder has come a long way in the past decade. I remember trying protein powder in the late 90’s and you really had to choke it down. Now, not only is it delicious, but there are some brands that might as well be dessert!! I love the Optimum Nutrition Vanilla, and the Combat Protein Cookies and Cream. I also REALLY love Uniconutrition, but I haven’t been able to justify the cost. I bought a sampler pack and was hooked on the taste. But the containers are just outrageous and I don’t need protein enough to go bankrupt! LOL
