5-ingredient Healthy Cake Batter Blondies made with all gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free ingredients.
Do you believe me when I tell you that these are the easiest cake batter blondies ever?
Ya, I would be questioning that statement too, but I promise these are so good. When I took my first bite, I almost thought they were fake. Like it was too good to be true or something.
A dessert that tastes like cake batter but is low in sugar, grain-free, dairy-free and only made with 5 ingredients? What gives?
Believe the hype friends because these blondies are absolutely insane and delicious and everything you wanted and more.
Did I mention these taste like healthy sugar cookies too?
Yup. It is true. Sugar cookie meets funfetti cake meets cake batter all wrapped up in one. And the ingredients are on point. A few of the key ingredients found in this recipe: cashew butter, maple syrup, almond flour and eggs. You will also see that I snuck in some Vital Proteins Vanilla Collagen Creamer for an extra protein boost. Plus it adds some health benefits to cake batter (these just keep getting better). I chat more on collagen here but I love using it in these too!
If you’re feeling fancy, definitely toss in some sprinkles to make things fun. Or you can even add some chocolate chips or whatever you are craving.
I hope you guys love these as much as I do. Cannot wait to hear what you think!

*Cashew butter works best in this recipe as it is a subtle nut butter. Tahini would also work but I do think cashew tastes best!

Thank you Vital Proteins for partnering with me for this post!
These are absolutely amazing!!!! I only had almond butter so I did sub that in, but it worked well! The almond extract makes these such a delicious flavor of almond and I really felt they were so smooth and decadent!!! I love these and they were so easy! And really fills my vanilla cake batter cravings! Thank you!
Do we need to include the vital proteins?
you can omit!
What can I sub for collagen creamer? 🙂
you can omit 🙂
10/10! used honey in place of maple syrup and home made blanched almond butter in place of cashew. So good!

Can coconut flour be substituted for the almond flour?
anytime i tested a sub it is listed 🙂 but this blog post about coconut flour would be helpful reference oo.
I am shocked that this combination of ingredients came out tasting just like yellow cake! Mine came out looking more poofy & cakey than yours but the texture is perfectly doughy inside. Brilliant recipe!
Hey Rachel, if we don’t have that exact creamer, how many grams is 2 scoops of the vital proteins creamer? Thanks!
These are absolutely amazing! I am obsessed
YAAYYY thank you!!!
Can you use vanilla extract instead of almond?
yes but the flavor isn’t the same..almond extract adds that funeftti/cake type flavor but vanilla would be yummy too.
I have made this recipe at least 5 times, never fails to amaze me, is so simple, and is soooooo delicious. I undercook this intentionally so it stays nice and soft. Sprinkles are a must!
thank you thank you!!
