Coconut Cream Chocolate Chip Protein Cake Bites

Light and fluffy coconut cream chocolate chip cake bites! You won't believe that each one only has 56 calories per cake bite. A little side note - - coconut flour is a bit tricky to bake with because it absorbs so much moisture from the batter. If you don't have coconut flour and you decide to use a flour substitute, make sure to add a bit more of the substitute than the amount of coconut flour the recipe calls for. Enjoy!


2/3 cup oat flour (or whole wheat flour)
¼ cup coconut sugar (or sweetener of choice)
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 egg whites
½ cup sugar free chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a sheet pan with foil coated with nonstick spray.

2. Whisk together coconut milk and egg whites in a mixing bowl.

3. To the bowl, add the remainder of ingredients, except chocolate chips, and stir until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips.  

4. Using a very small ice cream scooper, drop cookie dough balls onto the sheet pan. Repeat until 26 cake bites are made.

5. Bake in the oven for 8-12 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Nicolette’s Tips
* Adjust the sweetener of choice to reach desired sweetness. I tend to enjoy my treats on the less sweet side so feel free to add more as needed.
* If you do not have coconut flour, add an additional 1/3 cup oat flour as a substitute for ¼ cup coconut flour. Adjust the macronutrients as necessary.


  1. Have you tried using almond flour or something else as a substitute for the oat flour? I have no oat (or whole wheat!) flour or oats and would love to make these (:
