These raw chocolate brownie healthy cake pops are cake pops with a difference. They're made from all natural ingredients with no added refined sugar.
These cake pops are super simple to make.
Think energy balls or raw brownies but in cake pop format.
To make them all you need to do is add the ingredients to a food processor and blend together.
You can either leave them as they are, coat them in melted chocolate or dip them in sprinkles or desiccated coconut to make them look beautiful.
Healthy cake pops are perfect for parties
These healthy cake pops are perfect for children's birthday parties as they look so exciting that kids will find it hard to resist them.
Despite this they're free from refined sugar (obviously not including the sprinkles or chocolate if you choose to use those).
You don't even need to make them into cake pops if you don't want to - they still look, and taste, lovely when served as energy balls.
Why not make decorating the cake pops a party activity?
You could even get the children to decorate their own cake pop. Try out some different toppings first.
I found that hundreds and thousands stuck to the cake pop the best.
These cake pops are vegan.
However, if you want to add chocolate or sprinkles to them be sure to check the ingredients first.
If you're looking for a healthier topping try these healthier coconut sprinkles by Eats Amazing.
