    Hi, thank you first receipe. Yes i made this exactly as per receipe, there yummy. Only thing is mine were seeping, must br sprinkles, i have them in fridge. There still edible and yummy. 🙂

  2. Alexis says

    I am so thankful I found this recipe for protein balls without having to use Almond or Cashew butter. I do not like the flavor of either of those and feel that both would alter the flavor of Birthday Cake. Excited to try this!!

    This was excellent! I only used 2 scoops protein since my scoops were large, and 5 Tbsp of water. I also used casein protein, not whey, and I sprinkled coconut flakes and almond shavings on top and then popped held of it it in the microwave for 30 seconds . It came out so light, fluffy, sweet and delicious! It didn’t hold its shape exactly like cake would, it crumbled up, but the flavor was incredible and just like the real thing.

    This has worked amazingly a few times now – I can’t ever get the sprinkles to stick – but other than that i pop the balls into the fridge when I’ve made them and the consistency is perfect! They are a hit!

    Dough was way too sticky to form into any sort of ball! Batter tasted delicious, but i’m sad they never formed into anything more than mush. Even followed the comment about placing it into the fridge, but did not work out

    • Rena says

      Hi Victoria. Could be the scoop of protein you used was smaller. If the dough was a bit mushy just add either more coconut flour or more protein to get it to the right consistency.

    Nothing about this recipe worked. I tried multiple things and it still came out awful. So sad because it was very excited about this and also wasted a ton of expensive protein.

  7. Sara says

    Hi there!
    What kind of low calorie sweetener did you use…liquid, powdered, or granual?
    Super excited to try this recipe!
    Thank you,

    Ok what did I do wrong, they were not dough like at all, super gooey, I couldn’t roll into balls and they didn’t harden up at all. Should I have added more coconut flour??

    • Rena says

      Hi Lindsey. That’s odd. I will retest this recipe to make sure. But adding either more coconut flour, almond flour or protein would have prevented that.

      • Christy says

        I had the same problem but it was because I had to heat my coconut oil to liquify it. Once I mixed everything together, I put it in the fridge for about 10 minutes and it firmed up into a proper texture to roll into balls.

    What is the actual volume or weight measurement of the scoop of protein you used? My dough originally came out a little watery and I had to add pinches of more protein and flour until I got a more solid consistency.

    As I was searching Pinterest for a birthday day cake shake recipes I saw this yummy looking recipe. I included it in my new round-up post with protein shake recipes because they look so good.
