How to Make Birthday Cake Bars

First, ideally the night before, soak the cashews in water. 

In a medium bowl, mix together almond butter, Bone Broth Protein Vanilla, vanilla, sea salt, maple syrup, almond flour, oats and 1 tablespoon sprinkles. Stir until fully combined. 

Next, line a 8x8 baking dish with parchment and press the dough evenly into the bottom of the dish. Place in the fridge and allow to set for at least 1 hour. 

If you’re making the cashew cream cheese, prepare it while the bars are refrigerating. Drain the cashews and place them in a high speed blender. Add in coconut yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla and sea salt. Blend until smooth.

Take the bars out of the refrigerator and top with cashew cream cheese. You can use a spatula or the back of a spoon to smooth out the frosting. Top with sprinkles and freeze for at least 30 minutes. 

Bars will last up to one week and need to be stored in the refrigerator.
