Easy Cake Pops Recipe

For these cake pops, I’ve omitted the jam or frosting in the filling that’s typically found in other cake pop recipes. Since I use healthy almond flour in this recipe, the cake is moist enough to hold the cake pop filling together without any jam or frosting to bind it.

  1. Any recommendations on how to ship these or do you have other recipes that would be better suited for a trip via USPS?

    Thanks for you help :)

    • Hi Sinan,

      These cake pops ship really well during cold weather.

      When I pack them up, I put them in little lollipop bags, tie off with a bow, then package into a box with a lot of parchment paper to cushion.

      My chocolate chip cookies also ship pretty well :-)


  2. Your enthusiasm for these is definitely convincing me to try they out. The look awesome!

    Lately my favorite treat are mint cocoa chocolate chip cookies, but who knows…these cake pops could take over :)

  3. Love it! The molds are the best and so happy you have created more gluten free recipes. You make my life so much easier. Thank you for all your hard work, sweat equity, and full belly. Prefer dark chocolate over white so I’ll choose the dark route. Yippee!

  4. OMG, I just finished blogging about my first attempt at Gluten Free Birthday Cake Pops, thanks to you and Bakerella, and am now completely in love with these little things. But they’re dangerous – you can’t just eat one! Thank you for opening up my world to cake pops!!!

  5. I want to thank you for combining my two favorite food sites. Really honestly truly “Thank you.”

    I love Bakerella, but really only use that for food porn – or things to bring to parties.

    But now…the options have opened…

    Thank you thank you!
