Pretty and perfect Strawberry Protein Balls with the crunch of a cashew inside! Strawberry protein bites are healthy, low carb, low fat, gluten free and have no sugar added!

I’d been holding off on making a high protein strawberry bliss ball recipe for months, and now that I finally got my hands on some freeze-dried strawberries, I had to!

The combination of the cashew and strawberries in the energy bites really is quite addictive.

No issues here though since these are low sugar, low carb and low fat strawberry snack balls!

Ingredients for Cashew Strawberry Protein Balls

These healthy cashew strawberry protein balls are made with simple ingredients like oat flour, protein powder and coconut flour, and are great for a healthy snack. Here’s all that goes in:

  • Vanilla Protein Powder for a high protein snack, and also replace the sweetener.
  • I used whey+caesin Vanilla protein powder here from HTLT Supps.
  • Another option would be Quest.
  • Unflavored Protein Powder to replace some of the flour (and carbs) in the recipe for a slightly lower carb high protein recipe. I recommend the Multi-purpose mix protein powder from Quest Nutrition.
  • Oat Flour (you can make your own with rolled oats in a high speed blender)
  • Coconut Flour
  • Freeze Dried Strawberries
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Some Cashew Butter: I recommend American Dream Nut Butter Strawberry Frosted Donut Cashew Butter that’s higher in protein and lower in fat than normal ones!
  • ADNB also has a lot of other cashew butter flavors that would go perfect here. Code HAYLSKITCHEN gets you a discount here!

For the cashew filling and strawberry coating:

  • Cashew Seeds
  • More Freeze Dried Strawberries
