Does anyone not like the combination of peanut butter and chocolate? These chocolate peanut butter protein balls are a fan-favorite!



  1. Place oats, peanut butter, honey, protein powder and chocolate chips 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 (affiliate link) to scoop and form the dough into balls.
  4. Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.

  1. Loved these. I am going to try the tahini ones next thought I’ve never had it before.

  2. how many balls does the reciepe make? As you’ve said one serving is 114 cals, but not sure how big a ball that would be.


  3. These were delicious. My sister and I went thru these soo fast. Making a second batch today!

  4. I made these with Chocolate Vegan protein and maple syrup (because my honey was too crystallized) and my husband and I can’t stop eating them. Thank you for the recipe.

  5. Made these for the third time today! They are a great healthy pre/post workout snack or after dinner treat. I added some extra chocolate chips, I think next time I might use minis so they are more evenly distributed.

    • I made these for the second time today and had to leave a rating because they are SO tasty and easy to make! They taste like a treat without being unhealthy…love them!!!

  6. I made these last night so that I could have one before my workout today. They are absolutely delicious!! I’ll try the Cinnamon Raison Cookie ones next time.

    • Yay! I’m so glad that you loved them, Sonya. This is my favorite flavor too, but the cinnamon raisin cookie protein balls are amazing too! Can’t wait for you to try them. And thank you so much for coming back to comment and leave a star rating. The feedback and ratings are super helpful!

  7. I tried the chocolate peanut butter balls and they were great. I am looking forward to trying a different recipe the the next time I make them.

  8. Made these and had one after my workout just now. Yummy! They were a little on the dry side, and I did knead them at the end to get them to come together. Of course, it’s very dry here, so that might be some of the problem…but still very yummy. 🙂

    • Hi Michelle. Glad you like them. And yes, sometimes they can turn out a little dry. It mainly depends on how runny your peanut butter is. If you make them again and they seem dry, you can add a splash of almond milk or water. Just start really small (like 1 -2 teaspoons) because you don’t want them to be too wet.

  9. These look amazing! Unfortunately I can’t have honey, so I was wondering if these could be made with maple syrup instead?
