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 to scoop and form the dough into balls.
  4. Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.

      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 🙂

      Can you use something else besides the protein powder?

        This recipe is made to use protein powder, I do have a recipe for no bake energy balls without protein powder though!

      Thank you for this recipe. I’m always looking for more healthy treats for me and my husband. He’s not a big peanut butter fan, but he loved these. So yummy!!

      I’ve made several of your energy ball recipes and really like all of them, but these are my husband’s favorite, hands down. Probably will keep a good supply handy in our fridge in the coming months, staying healthy while beating the pandemic blues. Smooches to you and your beautiful family.

      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.

        Hey Tamara – It says 24 balls, which will of course depend on how big you make them. 🙂

      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.

      Could I use pea protein instead of chocolate protein powder? Would it still be as good?

      1. Brittany Mullins
        May 6, 2020 AT 10:19 am

        Is the pea protein sweetened or just plain? If it’s plain, I don’t think they would be as yummy!

      I love the idea of adding protein powder!

      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.

      Hi how much is a cup measurement in the chocolate chip peanut butter protein balls please

      1. Brittany Mullins
        January 28, 2020 AT 4:53 pm

        Hey Zara – It depends on how big you make the protein balls. You could probably fit 3-4 balls in one cup.

      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!

      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. 🙂

      1. Brittany Mullins

        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.

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

      1. Brittany Mullins
        August 19, 2019 AT 8:50 am

        Maple syrup instead of honey should work just fine. Honey is a bit stickier, but they should still hold together. Let me know if you try it with the maple, Ashley!
