Units Scale


  1. Mix the almond flour, protein powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the cashew butter, honey, vanilla extract and almond extract together.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients and mix together until combined. Add 1-2 tsp of almond milk as needed to help the dough bind together. (It helps to mix at first with a spoon, and then use your hands to mix the dough.) 
  4. Add the sprinkles and mix together with your hands to incorporate. 
  5. Roll into balls, about 1 tbsp of dough per ball. 
  6. Place in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour. 
  7. Store in the fridge. 


* there are many different brands of protein powder, some of which taste better than others. I recommend using unflavored plant-based protein powder, or vanilla plant-based protein powder.
