What you need to make edible healthy cake batter dip:
I get all of my pantry staples from Thrive Market: they’re 25-50% off retail price and they’re delivered straight to my door. I seriously can’t imagine anything better, especially for this busy mama! Here’s what I used to make this edible healthy cake batter dip:
- Almond flour
- Tapioca starch
- Pure maple syrup
- Healthier rainbow sprinkles
- Ghee or coconut oil (or butter!)
- Add almond milk if you prefer a thinner consistency like true cake batter. If you add quite a lot, you might want to increase the maple syrup to bring the sweetness back up.
- If you have a nut allergy, you can try using 1/2 cup coconut flour and 1 total cup tapioca starch in the recipe.
- Eat this edible healthy cake batter with a spoon or serve with fruit, like thinly sliced apples, if you’re paleo or grain-free. Try pretzel chips or sticks or graham crackers if you’re not!
- Make sure you stock up on healthier sprinkles for this birthday cake batter. I love these from Thrive Market.
- If you’re strictly paleo, try making your own rainbow sprinkles with this recipe.
- Let the entire edible healthy birthday cake batter sit for a few minutes for serving. The tapioca starch keeps the batter super smooth but will taste a bit pasty until it sits for just a couple minutes!
- Make sure you use coconut oil if you’re vegan and ghee or coconut oil if you’re paleo. You can use butter, too, and grass-fed butter can be awesome on a paleo diet! But definitely don’t use ghee or butter if you’re vegan.
