EASY RAW GLUTEN FREE VEGAN CAKE POPS

You may have seen on my Instagram that we recently celebrated our daughters fourth birthday! She loves cake pops, so I wanted to create some that were a little more health conscious, while also leaving out the foods that we have issues with in our house (gluten, dairy, eggs).

while I think these are a healthier option compared to a traditional cake pop, and they are free from refined sugars, they do have maple syrup and dates. But they are a better choice than other recipes and certainly better than store bought!

I think you guys are going to really like this recipe. when I posted a photo of them on stories, you wouldn’t believe how many replies I got asking for the recipe!

They are:

easy to make

only 8 simple ingredients

made with REAL foods

refined sugar free

sweet and satisfying

soft and chewy

and absolutely a hit at parties!

I hope you love these. Remember to use #naturallychelsrecipe on Instagram so I can see your creations!
