Protein Cake Pops

Protein Cake Pops

Cake pops- delicious and fun little 2-3 bite treats.  They can also be considered a sugar ball with a stick. haha.  I was inspired to make these protein cake pops after attending an event and having a traditional cake pop.  A friend said “If you can make a protein cake pop that would be amazing!”..well….challenge accepted! 🙂  The base for the cake portion is using the batter from the “Chocolate Protein Cake Doughnuts”  on my website.  Make these for your next gathering or for a fun treat that you don’t have to feel bad about!  Only 5g of carbs and 1g of sugar per pop and has healthy good for you fats from the coconut oil!

  1. Hi Emily- I’ve made these a few times and they are a big hit in my house… Have you ever tried a strawberry version? I’ve got a lot of the strawberry milkshake flavor id like to try this with.
