One-Bowl Vanilla Cake Batter Bites (Naturally-Sweetened)

Print Recipe
Irresistibly fun and totally delicious, One-Bowl Vanilla Cake Batter Bites are a naturally-sweetened, gluten-free, dairy-free treat to celebrate every day.
Servings 20 cookie dough bites


  • cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup natural unsweetened cashew butter at room temperature*
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups oat flour**
  • 2 tablespoons dye-free sprinkles***


  • In a large bowl, stir together the coconut oil, cashew butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  • Add the salt and oat flour, stirring again until well combined. Refrigerate for 10 minutes, or until the dough is firm enough to roll.
  • Using a cookie scoop or teaspoon, scoop 2 teaspoons of the mixture into your hands and roll gently into a ball. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Roll each ball in sprinkles, then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Store, tightly covered in the fridge for up to one week.


*If you can’t find or don’t want to use cashew butter, peanut butter or almond butter will work. The bites won’t quite have the same “cake batter” flavor, but they will still be very tasty. Use unsweetened sunflower seed butter for a nut-free option.
**Make your own oat flour for this recipe by placing 2 cups whole oats in a blender and blending until a coarse flour forms. Alternatively, you can buy pre-made oat flour at well-stocked grocery stores and online (either regular or gluten-free). Be sure to buy gluten-free oats if you want to keep recipe gluten-free.
***Look for dye-free sprinkles at your natural food stores or online.
