Allergy friendly protein bites

These bite-sized protein bites are nut free, vegan, gluten free and FODMAP friendly. Perfect for snacking, breakfast toppings and kids' lunchboxes. They're super easy, healthy and delicious!


  • 120g Seed butter (I used pumpkin seed butter, but Tahini also works)
  • 80g Maple Syrup
  • 50g Brown rice protein (you can find it at Source Bulk Foods)
  • 20g Cacao powder
  • 30g Seed mix (I used this one from Source Bulk Foods)
  • 20g Mini Choc Chips (these ones from Sweet William are great)
  • 10g Coconut oil
  • 10g Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp of gluten free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthan gum


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius, place baking paper on a baking tray
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, then smoosh the mixture together using your hands (I'm sure there's a more technical term than "smoosh" but you get the gist). Feel free to add extra ingredients, but the mixture needs to bind. 
  3. Roll the dough into small balls and spread evenly on the baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes, let cool and they're ready to munch!

This makes about 16 small balls. I often double the recipe to make a giant batch.
