High Protein Sugar Cookie Bites

These High Protein Sugar Cookie Bites are made with 7 plant-based ingredients and are high in protein for a sweet treat you can feel good about eating this holiday season. Prep a batch ahead of time to leave out for Santa, serve at holiday parties, and more! 

Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 bites


  • 1/2 cup cashew butter
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 (25g) serving vanilla pea protein I used Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 -1 tbsp plant-based milk
  • White chocolate to cover
  • Sprinkles optional but highly recommended


  1. In a medium, stir together the first four ingredients together until combined.
  2. Add in 1/2 - 1 tbsp of milk if needed to combine further.
  3. Roll the dough into 6-8 balls and place them in the fridge to firm up a bit - at least 15 minutes.
  4. In the last few minutes of chilling, melt your white chocolate (at least 1/4 cup, 1/2 will make it easier but you won’t use it all!) in a small microwave safe bowl.
  5. Once the chocolate is melted, use whatever utensil (your hands included!) to roll the bites in chocolate before placing them on a piece of parchment paper to set. Make sure to top the white chocolate with sprinkles before it sets if you choose to use them!
