Cake pops are trendy these days, and for good reason. Who doesn’t love a ball of cake on a stick, dipped in chocolate or frosting and decorated? Absolutely no one, that’s who. So check out these paleo cake pop recipes with grain-free, refined-sugar-free ingredient lists and fabulous flavors.
1. Birthday Cake Pops
These delicious little cake pops are actually no-bake, but you wouldn’t guess it from the fudgy cake texture and yummy flavor created by almond flour, salt, ghee, coconut milk, honey, and vanilla. Dip them in a simple coconut butter icing that can be colored with natural food colorings or beet juice.
2. Paleo Pumpkin Cake Pops
These simple cake pops are made with crumbled-and-rolled paleo pumpkin bread and dipped in melted chocolate. The best part of this recipe is that you can double the bread recipe and end up with both cake pops and a loaf of pumpkin bread at the end!
3. Nut Butter Frosted Paleo Brownie Pops
The only thing better than cake pops is brownie pops, am I right? This recipe makes everything easy with plenty of options for substitutions to work with different diets. The nut butter or seed butter frosting keeps things simple and healthy with lots of protein.
4. No Bake Rum Ball Cake Pops
I don’t think I even need to explain much about this recipe, because the title speaks for itself. The ingredients list features all-stars such as walnuts, pecans, cashews, medjool dates, rum, vanilla extract, chocolate, and Himalayan salt. And you don’t need to bake them!
5. White Chocolate Strawberry Velvet Cake Pops
I’m in love with this flavor combination, and with the homemade white chocolate to go with it. Freeze-dried strawberries pump up the strawberry flavor, and the luscious white chocolate it so silky. Make it fully paleo with powdered coconut sugar. The color will be darker, but the flavor just as good.
6. Coconut Cake Pops
Coconut makes a fabulous cake flavor, and this recipe triples it with coconut flour, coconut sugar, and coconut extract. Of course, we have to cover them in a delicious chocolate ganache. Using a cake pop maker makes this recipe easy so you aren’t rolling crumbly balls of fall-apart cake.
7. No Bake Red Velvet Cake
Yes, red velvet cake! But completely free of Red Dye #40 because yo, we’re healthy here, folks. This recipe is made with beets, coconut flour, almond flour, Medjool dates, shredded coconuts, full fat coconut milk, vanilla extract, and chocolate chips for melting.
8. Chocolate and Vanilla Cake Pops
You can make these buddies in both flavors and enjoy them within a few minutes, no baking required. This is an especially simple cake pop recipe, using just coconut oil, maple syrup, unsweetened cocoa powder, almond flour, vanilla, and a dash of sea salt.
9. Cocoa-Nut Cake Pops
Made with coconut flour and coconut sugar and sweetened with honey and vanilla, these perfect cake pops are covered in a luscious, silky cashew butter cream “cheese” frosting sweetened with maple syrup and made spunky with the addition of lemon juice and apple cider vinegar.
10. Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Cake Pops
Peppermint and mocha flavors are perfect together, especially in the cooler months when those flavors smack of holiday cheer. For these cake balls, you’ll need coconut and arrowroot flours, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, coconut sugar, strong coffee, and more.
11. Paleo Chocolate Cake Pops
Chocolate is a flavor everyone is sure to agree on, and a little optional coffee powder brings out all the chocolaty goodness. Almond butter makes them rich and fudgy, and a little grated carrots is a secret healthy ingredient the kids won’t even notice. These are actually healthy!
12. Pumpkin-Spiced Mini Donuts and Cake Pops
Before you hit the wintertime flavors, try this perfect-for-autumn pumpkin spice recipe for mini donuts and cake pops (depending on the type of appliance you have). The ingredients are simple with pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, maple sugar, almond flour, and coconut oil.
13. Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Pops
This unique cake pop flavor is sweet and lemony with poppy seeds and a thick coconut butter glaze. Raw honey is the perfect sweetener to balance the lemon flavor, and coconut milk makes them rich and tasty. These would be perfect for a spring picnic!
14. Valentine’s Day Paleo Cake Pops
Made with cutout shapes of baked cake instead of rolled into balls, these delicious little cake pops have a light vanilla flavor and they’re sweetened with raw honey for a delightful treat. They’re ideal for a romantic gift, so decorate them with strawberries and chocolate fudge icing!
15. Marzipan Cake Pops
Marzipan is a sweet, chewy almond-flavored candy that, in this recipe, you can turn into cake pops! This paleo marzipan is made with almond flour, maple syrup, vanilla extract, tapioca flour, and colorful spices like ground turmeric and cinnamon powder for dusting the finished pops.
16. Healthy 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake Pops
Cake pop recipes, even some of those that I’ve already shared here, can be a little complicated. After all, paleo baking can require a lot of ingredients. Not these! These are the simplest cake balls you’ve ever made, with coconut flour, pumpkin puree, and coconut palm sugar.
