Dark Chocolate Chip Protein Cake Bites


Because sometimes, transporting an entire cake is a pain in the ass. These are my solution. Cake bites! Ever had them?? If you have not, you sure are missing out. Luckily, I have provided a healthy version of the scrumptious cake bites, easily one of my favorite desserts! I was super excited as I was making these and hoping they would turn out delicious. And that they did. Enjoy!

Ingredients

Cake Bites
2 Tbsp. baking stevia or xylitol
½ tsp. baking powder
3 Tbsp. plain greek yogurt
1 large egg
¼ cup cooked sweet potato

Topping
¼ cup melted chocolate chips, optional

Method

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add greek yogurt, coconut oil, sweet potato, & egg to a blender or food processor. Blend until mixture is smooth. Add the remainder of the cake bite ingredients to a mixing bowl and pour in the wet mixture. Mix together until well combined.

2. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.  Make 18 even balls from the mixed cake batter and place them on the baking pan. Bake in the oven for 13-16 minutes. Let cool slightly then top each cake bite with melted chocolate topping if desired.

*Note : I used a mini ice cream scooper to make the cake balls to ensure they were all the same size.

Makes 18 servings
1 serving is 1 cake bite without the topping

Nicolette’s Notes
* You may substitute greek yogurt with low fat sour cream.
* You may substitute coconut flour with oat flour or whole wheat flour.
