Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 24 balls


  • 1 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 scoops, 64 grams chocolate protein powder
  • 2 Tablespoons chocolate chips


  • Place oats, peanut butter, honey, protein powder and chocolate chips 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.

      On the Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls, I could not find Chocolate Protein Powder but did find Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Powder. Is this ok as I will need to log this in for my Weight Watcher’s recipe and wondering how it will skew the original recipe? Thank you in advance!

        That will work just fine! You’ll have to let me know how it turns out and what you think of it, Tiffany!

      These are so delish & RICH.I was worried I might eat too many and once and gain some LBs but you’re full after a couple! We drizzled them with honey & served with oat milk 🙂
