Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 24 balls


  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup natural almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 scoops, 64 grams chocolate protein powder
  • 1-2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut


  • Place oats, almond butter, honey, protein powder and shredded coconut in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  • 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.
  • Once combined, use a small cookie scoop to scoop and form the dough into balls.
  • Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.

      This was so easy to make. I only made 1 modification and used maple syrup instead of honey and they are delicious!! My new go to snack, especially when craving as something sweet or chocolate.

      Almond Joys are my favorite candy! I was so excited to try these so that I can enjoy guilt free snacking. They are so good! I added 2 tbsp of water and they came out perfectly! Thank you for this recipe.

      I also subbed unsweetened cocoa powder like an earlier commenter and loved the chocolatey taste. Added a couple tablespoons of water and that got it totally workable to roll into balls. I’m a nursing, working mom so having fast one handed snacks that are easy to meal prep are a life saver!

      These were delicious! I used cocoa powder in place of protein powder and they turned out pretty well! A little crumbly but still delicious.

        I’m glad these turned out with the cocoa powder instead of the protein powder, Kaitlin. Next time, you can always add a splash of water or milk if the dough seems too dry.
