These delicious Birthday Cake Energy Balls are the perfect goodie to make for a quick and easy snack or treat. Throw all the ingredients in a food processor, roll into balls, and devour! It really is that easy.


  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews 
  • 1 cup rolled oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla 
  • 2 tbsp milk (I used oat milk)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Sprinkles – optional


  1. In a food processor combine the oats and cashews and blend until the mixture no longer has chunks.
  2. Add in the maple syrup, protein powder, vanilla, milk, and salt and blend until a smooth dough forms.
  3. Roll dough in balls (then roll in sprinkles – optional). Store in fridge or freezer.


  1. You can use any protein powder that you like, I used this brand (one of my favorites!)
  2. Turn these into cookie dough balls by switching out the sprinkles for chocolate chips. Once you’ve blended the dough, pulse in chocolate chips to taste.
