  1. Place oats, almond butter, honey, protein powder and shredded coconut in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Getting the mixture to combine takes a little arm muscle and it may seem too thick at first, but it will come together as you keep mixing. I used my hands to knead the dough near the end and that seems to help.
  3. Once combined, use a small cookie scoop to scoop and form the dough into balls.
  4. Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.

  1. I found that I already have steel cut oats in my cabinets, which I would love to use because I fear otherwise I won’t. Do you know if the measurements might be the same? I will cook first and then follow the recipe the same way.

    • Ohh I haven’t tried these with steel cut oats, so I’m not exactly sure on the measurements. I would just go off the measurements I listed and see if you need more / less. Let me know how they turn out for you!!

  2. Hi! I think I did something wrong because these came out way drier than what I buy in the store and what your picture shows. Any ideas? They basically crumble.

    • Oh no!! So sorry to hear these protein balls didn’t turn out for you. Did you change anything about the recipe? It could have been the protein powder or almond butter you used. Was the almond butter chunky or runny? Next time, you can always add a little applesauce or milk if the batter seems too dry. 🙂
