These Paleo Vegan Birthday Cake Bites are easy to make and so delicious. No-bake, ready in minutes and gluten free, dairy free and naturally sweetened.
These little no-bake balls have the best texture! It’s like biting into a ball of cookie dough and they taste just like birthday cake. They are soft, sweet, and such a good treat.
Just a handful of ingredients are needed and these are mixed together by hand which is quick and easy.
Cashew Butter- Georgia Grinders in my favorite. Cashew butter gives these richness without the nut butter being too overpowering. You can sub another nut butter, but the flavor will be different. My favorite cashew butter is Georgia Grinders and you can use code Jessica20 for a 20% off on their site.
Maple Syrup– this sweetener is mild and gives just the right sweetness. Honey may work, but is stronger in flavor (and they wouldn’t be vegan anymore).
Almond Extract- these may seem like a weird ingredient, but it really gives it that cake batter taste. Use 1/2-1 teaspoon depending on your taste preference.
Almond and Coconut Flour- these 2 grain free flours give the best texture, like cookie dough.
Natural Sprinkles– try to find sprinkles that are naturally colored and don’t contain soy. I used Color Kitchen sprinkles and they do have cornstarch in them which means they aren’t strict paleo, but they were the best I could find.
I love using dates for little bites like these, but I know some people don’t like dates or can’t tolerate them. These are sweetened with maple syrup and are held together with that and the cashew butter. And because they are date free it means they are just mixed up in a bowl, not a food processor.
I know you will love these paleo vegan birthday cake bites because they are easy to make and so tasty. A nice little sweet treat. Here are some more bite recipes to try:
