Lotus Biscoff cookies are one of my childhood favorites—the crispy caramel texture with the deep flavor of spices makes me think of Christmas, hot coffee and oddly enough, plane rides! Recently a friend shared a slice of Biscoff cheesecake she made from scratch and EUPHORIA! I even had withdrawal symptoms after eating this cheesecake!
The caramelized biscuit base with the creamy cheesecake filling and the hint of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, clove, and nutmeg was more than perfect. Soon I wanted to make my own version of Biscoff cheesecake.
So here it is a recipe for my healthy, no-bake, 5-ingredient Biscoff protein balls. Like my other protein ball recipe, these energy bites are creamy, nut-free, and indulgent while still low in calories and high in protein and happiness. They might even become one of your favorite desserts!

- Cream Cheese - I’ve tried using both dairy and vegan cream cheese made from almond milk, and both turn out delicious.
- Protein Powder - You can use any protein powder for this. I used a vanilla plant-based protein powder.
- Coconut Flour - you can use any brand of coconut flour for this recipe.
- Biscoff cookies - delicious cookies that sing with flavors of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, clove, and nutmeg
- Almond Milk - or just water
For the Deco
- White chocolate chips - you can use any white chocolate chips (or chopped white chocolate), but to make these low-carb, use a lower sugar, stevia sweetened brand instead. For a dairy-free, vegan alternative, try this brand.
How to Make
Lotus Biscoff Protein Balls
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl
Roll the batter into tablespoon sized balls, refrigerate for 15 minutes to set. Note: I find that it's best to use my hands to mix the dough because it takes some kneading and pressing to get the dough to come together.
Coat with melted white chocolate, sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Enjoy!
Recipe Variations and Optional Add Ins:
- If you don't have biscoff cookies on hand you can use other crispy cookies of choice! Try oreos or chocolate chip cookies!
- Feel free to experiment with natural flavoring / extracts. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract (I didn't feel like it was essential so I left it out in this recipe), or other flavorings or extracts, such as lemon extract or raspberry extract
How to Make this Healthier
- Make this even healthier by adding a handful of nuts, seeds and old-fashioned oats to add texture and nutrition. Even better, add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, hemp seeds, or chia seeds.
How to Store
- Store these protein balls covered in the fridge for up to 3-5 days.
- Coconut flour and protein powders are all very different depending on brands, so if you find that the dough is too soft, add more coconut flour; if the dough is too thick, add a teaspoon or more of water, honey or liquid sweetener of choice.
