Cake batter, sprinkles and sweet vanilla frosting—three ingredients of one of our favorite guilty pleasures: Birthday cake. Unfortunately, this sugar-laden dessert is often accompanied by an overabundance of calories. But we’ve got great news—there’s a healthier alternative that packs in the protein, sweetness AND sprinkles.
Made from nutritious ingredients like oats, Vanilla FreshStart Shake™, sunflower seed butter and almond milk, these Birthday Cake Protein Bombs are a must-try for a sweet snack that will leave you feeling satisfied. Packing in more than eight grams of protein, these Protein Bombs are the sweet treat you never knew you needed. Complete with vanilla extract and rainbow sprinkles, these bite-sized balls of protein bliss deliver all the decadence of a piece of delectable vanilla cake… without any of the guilt!
Using a food processor or blender, process oats until they formed a flour-like mixture. Add in the FreshStart Shake, sunflower seed butter, vanilla extract and almond milk.

Once you remove the mixture from the freezer, roll it into “Protein Bombs” and grab two to enjoy!
