A “birthday cake” that only takes 15 minutes to make and doesn’t require any actual baking? Yes, please.

These Birthday Cake Energy Balls made with Vanilla Shakeology are incredibly easy to “bake” — all you have to do is place seven ingredients into a food processor, blend them together, and you’re basically done.

There’s no oven time required, so if you’re one of those raw cookie dough eaters (or just looking for a gluten-free snack), then this is definitely the dessert for you.

(Psst — the sprinkles are just for decoration.)

Vanilla Shakeology Recipes

These little nuggets of deliciousness are loaded with healthy vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and super yummy.

A quick rundown on their nutritional benefits: A single serving (½ cup, cooked) of rolled oats (not quick-cooking oats) contains 8 percent of your daily recommendation for fiber and 6 percent for iron.

Medjool dates are a rich source of key vitamins and minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and vitamin B6.

Almonds and almond butter are good sources of vitamin E, which can help fight and prevent cell damage with its antioxidant properties. A quarter cup of these powerful little nuts has more than seven grams of protein, which will keep you feeling full — and full of energy.

A banana adds natural sweetness and even more potassium, which your body needs to help it perform essential functions. Finish it all off with a splash of pure vanilla extract and Vanilla Shakeology.

These Birthday Cake Energy Balls are the perfect pick-me-up for that afternoon slump or when you’re feeling a little peckish. Make a big batch and you’ve got a healthy snack stash to take on the road or to the gym.
