How to Make No-Bake Healthy Gender Reveal Cake Pops

These gluten-free gender reveal cake pops are super easy to whip together too! If you’ve been around the Secretly Healthy Home Kitchen a while, you know I’m a BIG fan of no-bake desserts. My most favorite being my Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars (also vegan and gluten-free). 

I actually announced how we were having a baby girl for our second child through Instagram when I made these cake pops! You can check out that post here! Simply whisk all the dry ingredients together, then add in the wet ingredients. Stir it all together and roll them into balls. Melt your chocolate and add in your spirulina powder and beetroot powder to make the white chocolate colored! Or you can leave the chocolate white and decorate with sprinkles. Totally up to you. Dip each cake pop stick in the melted chocolate and place it in the center of the cake pops. Then, dunk and decorate those healthy cake pops!

No Bake Cake Pops Without Cream Cheese

There are many things to love about these no-bake gluten-free cake pops. One of them is that they are also vegan because we don’t use any cream cheese or frosting to make them! The thing that holds these cake pops together is a flax egg and some maple syrup. I love using flax eggs to hold my healthy dessert recipes together without adding a ton of oil. I do this same trick in my Vegan Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches recipe and No-Bake Chocolate Almond Butter Bars too!

Are Starbucks Cake Pops Vegan?

According to what I found via the internet, Starbucks cake pops, or any of their treats, are not vegan. This source actually explains how they aren’t even vegetarian either! Woah. Well, no need to fear my vegan friends, this no-bake gluten-free cake pop recipe is 100% vegan! They are dairy-free and egg-free! Doesn’t get much better than that.

Don’t Have Sticks? Make Gender Reveal Cake Balls!

I know you might be hesitant to make these cake pops because you might not have cake pop sticks laying around your kitchen. You can actually get them off amazon really cheap! That’s where I got my cake pop sticks. But, if you want these cake pops NOW and don’t have sticks, just forego the sticks and make them vegan cake balls! Same taste, just lower to the counter 😉

I cannot wait for you to give these No-Bake Healthy Gender Reveal Cake Pops a try! Please snap a picture and share it with me! Seeing your kitchen creations makes my day and encourages me to keep creating new recipes for you!

Healthy Gender Reveal Cake Pops (No Artificial Color!)

Healthy gender reveal cake pops

These healthy gender reveal cake pops are delicious and colored with all-natural ingredients! No artificial food coloring necessary. They’re healthy, made with all wholesome ingredients, but you would never know. Secretly healthy at its finest. No baking needed either!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

For The Cake Pops

  • ½ Cup Oat Flour (I make my own in 3 steps)
  • ½ Cup Blanched Almond Flour lightly packed
  • ¼ Cup + ½ Tbs Tapioca Flour
  • ¼ - 1 tsp Beet Root Powder (for girl) or ¼ - 1 tsp Blue Spirulina Powder (for boy)
  • 1 Flax Egg (1 Tbs ground flax + 2 Tbs water. Let thicken for 5 min)
  • ½ tsp Almond Extract
  • 1½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Tbs Pure Maple Syrup (or honey) (may add a little more to taste)

Chocolate Coating

  • 5½ oz Vanilla Almond Bark (try to find one without artificial flavors) (or non-dairy white melting chocolate)
  • Optional: ½ - 1 tsp Beet Root Powder and ½ - 1 tsp Blue Spirulina Powder (this is if you want to have the white chocolate be pink and blue on the outside too. Or you can leave the outside of the cake pops white)
  • Naturally Colored Sprinkles (my favorite brand!) Or pink and blue sprinkles of choice

Instructions

1. Line a cookie sheet or large plate with parchment paper and set it aside. In a medium bowl, add the oat flour, tapioca flour, almond flour, and beetroot powder (for girl) OR blue spirulina powder (for boy) (you may want to shift in the beetroot powder). Mix together until combined and all lumps are gone. Start with the least amount of beetroot/spirulina powder.

2. To the dry ingredients, add the flax egg, almond extract, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. Mix until a dough forms. Add more beetroot/spirulina powder if necessary and continue to add and mix until your batter looks like the right pink or blue color you are looking for.

3. Take about 1-2 Tbs of dough, roll it between palms, and place on parchment-lined tray. Repeat until all dough is gone (should make about 9-10 cake balls).

4. Melt the almond bark (or white melting chocolate) using a double boiler or microwave. If microwaving, melt in 20-second intervals, stirring in between each interval until melted. Optional: If you want your cake pops to be pink and blue on the outside, pour half the melted chocolate in another small bowl. Add the beetroot powder to one melted chocolate and the spirulina to the other until you get the desired pink and blue colors for each.

5. Cover the tip of each cake pop stick with melted chocolate and place it in the cake pops. This will act as glue to help the sticks stay in place. Allow to dry (2-3 minutes). 

6. Using a spoon, cover the cake pops with melted chocolate and smooth out. Be sure to wipe off extra chocolate, you don’t want too much otherwise it will drip and be too heavy. Make sure the gender reveal color on the inside is well hidden with chocolate.

7. Top with sprinkles or topping of choice and allow chocolate to set for at least 5 minutes before enjoying!


Notes

  1. Once you’ve placed the cake pop sticks, don’t move them too much otherwise they will fall out because the hole will get loose. 
  2. Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to a week, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freeze for 3 months! Set on counter the thaw.
